It is a pleasure for me to congratulate Andre Yeu (and Petey the beagle), Jeff Levenson (and Munroe the handsome and unidentified mixed breed), Audrey Cunningham (and Eli the ACD), and Ellen Tully (and Duffle, a handsome Collie mix) on completing the Karen Pryor Academy course for dog trainers.
It has been such a wonderful experience for me to watch the growth, excellence, and commitment to force-free training that all four of you displayed throughout your workshops and training assignments. I have every confidence that your businesses will thrive as a result of your skill, dedication, and education in the best practices of business and training. I wish you all unlimited success in your training futures, and look forward to welcoming you to the alumni group upon your graduation from the Academy. I know it is hard waiting on your evaluation scores, but fear not, Steve is quick!
I hope to see all four of you many, many times again in the future. Travel home safely, friends. I’m so very proud of all of you and will miss you much.
