Once or twice a month we hold live online coaching sessions for our students. My “Inner Circle” is a group of students I help with their dog training throughout the year so they get one of these sessions each month. Most of my other online classes get one or two of these coaching session over the duration of each course….really it is a tool we use to facilitate learning, clear up challenges, motivate training and get closer to our students.Screen Shot 2014-11-18 at 12.13.45 AM

These coaching sessions usually lasting between 90 -120 minutes.  It really depends upon how many questions we get before and during the shoot. We love these sessions and often use our dogs to do demos…but just like “live TV” sometimes the demos don’t go as planned.

This month’s coaching call for my Inner Circle was focused on the “retrieve”. My students assignment was to rate the skill level of their own dogs’ retrieves before we got together (on a scale of 0-10) and we picked the training up from there.

I thought I would share some of the “bloopers” or lighter moments from that session with you…as with most of our coaching sessions, there ends up being a lot of learning with a dash of lunacy…here I share some of those “dashes” from this months session. 🙂

Today I am grateful for Lynda’s sense of humor. As dog owner we all have to find joy somewhere in the midst of even our toughest challenges or it can all get a bit much.

Leave me a comment and me know which part got to you the most…it will give me insight into your sense of humour 🙂
