Joining the Family Paws Parent Education team

Taking some time off after moving to Canada has allowed Jenn to re-evaluate her dog training business and think about where and what she wants to do.  One thing that Jenn always talked about was joining Family Paws Parent Education
Family Paws in an international educational program that specializes in helping expectant pet parents prepare for life with a baby.  They also offer a separate program for families already managing dogs and toddlers.  They offer presentations, resources, and training help for families all over the world.

So, Jenn took advantage of her time off and contacted her friend and Family Paws founder Jen Shryock and Jenn recently completed the 13 week training course to become a Family Paws licensed presenter.  Jenn is super excited to be able to offer Family Paws workshops, online and in-home training for families with pets and children here in Burlington, Ontario.

We're moving where?! Canada?

Our time in Mercersburg came to a close and Jenn said that our next adventure was moving even farther north.  Jenn had always wanted to live in a place called Canada and she thought is was a great opportunity to see what it would be like.  So we packed the Element up, drove a heck of a long time, crossed the border, and settled in a place near Lake Ontario. 
My first impressions of Canada were that is was pretty darn cold!  Cold like I'd never felt.  And it is not like North Carolina or Pennsylvania kind of cold.  Everything was covered in snow and ice for months!  But we found a super walking trail that we could go on everyday.  Jenn said that I had to learn how to wear boots like her to keep the ice and snow from making my feet hurt. 
And I got a super snuggly bed that I could curl up in right next to the radiator.  We were very warm all winter long and we both got used to the cold. 
  Jenn even started snowshoeing!!
