    I've been working with a trainer for a couple of months now. He does the practical blocks of the dog behaviour course I did and poaches/trains up students from there to be extra instructors for his classes.

    I've been assisting in the classes for a couple of months and last week he suddenly sprung it on me that I can run one of tonights classes on my own. I havn't taken more than one excercise at a time per class yet so I feel like I'm getting dropped in the deep end a bit. lol

    Oh well, I think I've come up with a lesson plan that makes sense and hopefully I havn't over thought it. It's not a beginning level class so most of the people/dogs have their head wrapped around the excercises already.
    I'm over all, very excited that I'm getting to do more training now though, things are starting to come together!

    It all went well. Was meant to have a friend of mine that has been a trainer there for a while as backup but she was off sick so I got to run 3 classes. Felt a bit choppy but that's expected and at least I wasn't a nervous wreck public speaking.
    And I really can't complain about making some extra money on the side talking about training and playing with puppies.its helping me get my puppy fix.
