Doggone good!

The Inquisitive Canine is a great Web site and its Doggie Blog is chockablock full of dog training tips, techniques and knowledge. The Inquisitive Canine. Certified professional dog trainer and behavior consultant Joan Mayer really knows her stuff and loves seeing her students succeed.

Full disclosure: I get to help out with some of the writing and editing. I'm learning lots. My Golden Retriever, Libby, is the beneficiary of all my newfound insight to canine psyche. Our bond has grown stronger, thanks to my job. I've found Joan's approach to training – focus on the positive, reinforce the behavior you want – helpful in all aspects of my life.

The Laughing Workout

The Plaza Playhouse Theater is where the action is come Friday night at 8 p.m. March 6 is First Friday in ol' Carp. That means there will be tons of dining and shopping specials in town. After wining and dining, come over to the theater for some laughs courtesy of the Plaza Improv Players. Laughing is good for the abs, and so much more fun than sit-ups. 

Rumored to be the best show in town. Laughing is believing.
Hope to see you there.
