Working at an #AnimalShelter, I get the #Opportunity to interact, #Rehabilitate and #Train with different types of #Dogs with a wide range of #Behaviors, and #Personalities every single day! My journey has been a bit different than most, from #AnimalControlOfficer to learning #AnimalCruelty #Investigations, to #ObedienceTraining, #DogTraining and #BehaviorModification, #DogRehabilitation... I’ve met some people who have truly changed My Life whether they realize it or not...I’ve continued to ask questions as if I know nothing in order to continue my Learning. There’s been a lot of people that have crossed my path, I just want to #ShoutOut a few of them who’ve made quite an impression on me throughout the years! @kevinslahey @ajgarcialive... I still do, and will continue to look up to you guys. You guys opened my eyes to A Different world and never judged me for not knowing! #Gracias @netosgirl #ThankYou for giving a #Young #Cocky #Punk the time of day and really showing me the ropes! @itsonlylovetraining Although our time together was brief, I loved your #Energy and the way you displayed your #Passion for #Training, trust me when I tell ya it was infectious!! @southern_fried_d My Boy, although I’m my own biggest cheerleader, Thanks for pumping me up and believing in Me when the Other #BigShots didn’t! I appreciate you Hermano! And most recently, @ipittythebull, You’re my brother for #Life and I appreciate the heck outta ya. My List of things I’m thankful for from ya will continue #YouAlreadyKnow.
I used to seek Validation from others because I was younger and felt like I needed it, as my peers were all older and more experienced, some friendly, some not so much. Doubt can be quite the venom and I would always ask myself if I was good enough... Over the last couple years, I’ve learned to let go of that sentiment and Just Do.
I’ll stay asking, stay #Learning, and from the list of what is now Hundreds of Clients that are better Leaders for their Dogs...As they say Say Proof is in the Pudding. Be #Humble but always remain #Confident. 🙏🏽🤙🏽
