Because she is a successful dog trainer, Caryl continues with her education. “I attend four to six seminars a year,” she says. “I also have a personal library of around 1,000 books, tapes, CDs, DVDs, and videos. Additionally, I network with other trainers to come up with new training techniques and innovative solutions that we can pass on to our clients. I can’t tell you how good I feel when my clients tell me that they were on the verge of giving up their dogs and that I helped the dogs stay in their homes. Even though we are training for just a short time, the training lasts a lifetime.”
