    I guess I've always gotten lucky. Working at a clinic, having multiple feral fosters, personal cats, etc. means that I've handled hundreds of cats. I once got bitten over a dozen times on one hand in...

    Young OTTBS with some time in training go for $3-6k around here. Numbers jump to 7-10k when they've had 6-12 months of training, run a few events, and can lay down a nice training level dressage...

    I am an empath but lack some of the creativity/earthy-ness that many seem to have. I am a weird cross between an empath and being highly logical and analytical. Doing program evaluation and...

    I'd much rather have a dog sitter than board. Boarding can be really stressful even when the care is high-quality.

    Not a trainer but I will add that I knew someone who had a dog who displayed low level aggression. He warned with a growl and hackles when a dog got pushy. The owner corrected with a sharp yell and...
