Grass Field of Dreams!

Introduction
Pamela Johnson owner of Pam’s Dog Academy is a dog trainer and educator with a B.S. degree in Kinesiology and a M.A in Education Curriculum Development. As a full time middle school PE teacher, Pamela feels that many of the skills she uses to teach children transfer nicely to training dogs.

Her passion is using FORCE FREE training methods for behavior modification, as well as training complex behaviors and tricks.

She thrives on the challenge of coming up with creative new ways to train dogs.

Pamela believes that every dog she works with teaches her more about training, patience and, most importantly, to be a better person.

Pamela traveled to Vancouver with Emily Larlham to team-teach a Canine Freestyle seminar, and has taught multiple dog training seminars in North America.

She is known around the world for her training videos on her Youtube channel “pamelamarxsen.” Here she posts free tutorial videos in order that more people may discover the magic of progressive reinforcement training!

Her business Pam’s Dog Training Academy is based in San Diego, California. She is a CPDT-KA, a professional member of the APDT as well as the PPG.
What We Need & What You Get

Pam’s Dog Academy has a new training facility that is in need of a grass field. We currently have a horse riding arena that is dirt and will be the perfect place to host seminars, have group classes and dog sports camps. However, it is not going to be cheap.

We will need $6000 for sprinkler systems, drainage and grass.
I am offering many perks to reward you for your generous donation to this project! ebooks, DVDs, Online Classes and One on One Coaching.
If we are not able to raise the entire $6000, we plan on saving the money and putting it in a special account that will be specifically for the grass field. If enough is raised for us to get the project started, we will proceed in phases.
If you would like something other than the perk offered, please feel free to email me and I will see what I can do.
The Impact

This project will not only impact those that are able to travel to group/private classes, dog camp or seminars, but I will be able to produce an unlimited amount of FREE YouTube “How to” Clicker Dog Training videos. These videos will range from dog sports, tricks, behavior modification and so much more.

You can view some of my YouTube videos at www.YouTube.com/pamelamarxsen
Pam has been helping people train their dogs with FREE advice through email, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and over the telephone. This will not stop because Pam believes in helping as many dogs and their humans as possible.

Dog Consent to Pet Test by Lisa Desatnik

http://www.SoMuchPETential.com If you share your life with a dog, then you no doubt understand the magical affect of petting him. There has even been research to show the benefits to humans from being close to and touching pets. The thing is that, while your dog no doubt loves you very much there are some times where a human touch just makes him uncomfortable. It could be that you are touching him in a place he does not like, or at a time when he is already feeling stressed. Maybe he is in a place where he feels crowded and unable to escape. Here, I stop and let Sam tell me whether he wants more petting or not.
