This post has been in the back of my mind for some time now. In the not too distant past my passion for dogs was questioned as having been lost. It really made me question 1. What did that person see that made them say it? (If it was true) 2. Was/Is it true?.
First I don't believe its true! My life has always been surrounded by dogs and the life that I now lead is one I have wanted for many years. I love training dogs and maintaining a balanced pack BUT I love helping people that want to improve their dog and their own lives. I love seeing the change in "problem dogs" and the light in the owners eyes when they realize how simple the change is. So my passion is dogs but more specifically training herding dogs, what is your passion?
There are so many facets to dogs and the life that we lead with them. I think there is room for everyone and their doggie passion. I have been involved with purebred dogs since I was 14yr old, I started with a Golden in 4-H, then my Schutzhund GSD and finally Beli:-)) I loved each of those opportunities but herding is my passion now. It is such a wonderful thing to see a dog know what to do on stock when they have never done it. It is still the most challenging thing I've ever done! I guess it is a good thing its my passion!
