I just wanted to make a quick post introducing myself. I've always loved animals and grew up with dogs, cats, horses, various rodents and a few chickens for a while. I worked in a vet clinic while in high school and there I learned that I didn't want to become a vet or a vet tech, so instead I went to school for business with hopes of someday owning my own vet clinic. We're still waiting for that day.
Currently my only pet is a cat that thinks it's a dog. she comes when called and plays fetch. we're working on walking on a leash, but the cat seems to think she can't walk with a harness on. Silly creature.
I mainly joined this forum to learn. While I did have dogs growing up, I put most of my effort into my horses and kind of let the dogs sit. The dogs were all taught basic obedience; come, sit, down, stay and heel-to some extent. What I'm trying to learn now is more behavioral. I know horses inside and out and I wish to be that way with dogs.
I may ask dumb questions from time to time, but please know that I'm only trying to learn and understand. I hope to gain lots of good information from you all and acquire lots of good links and articles to read and think about.
