On Animal Training

My most satisfying aspect of animal training is a very simple moment. After a show when I leave the stage door… and there is a crowd gathered, sometimes I hear someone say the following and it makes it all worthwhile. “How did they make that dog do that?” I smile because I am the only “they” and I do it with love.
