Kicking Off 2018 with Tons O' Fun!

Hey, Friends!

It's 2018 and we started off with tons o' fun during the month of January!

Kevin and Amber practicing their tackle part of the routine.On January 7, 2018, we had a very exciting day at Paws-A-Tive Choice, LLC. Our fantastic Certified Trick Dog Instructor, Cheryl Cieslinski, was asked to mentor NFL Guard for the Cleveland Browns, Kevin Zeitler and his dog, Amber to prepare them for the CBS Live Show, MVP: Most Valuable Performer which aired live on January 25, 2018.

The promo shoot that was done at Kevin, being interviewed in the front office of Paws-A-Tive Choice, LLCPaws-A-Tive Choice, LLC was an incredibly fun day! A sound man, Bill and a producer, Marc, flew in from Burbank, CA to spend the day shooting video for the promotional piece that was edited down to a one minute bio package that played on air just before Kevin and Amber came on stage to perform their trick dog routine. 

I took several photos and video of the fun we had. CBS would not let us share any details until they released the 6 finalists, and Kevin and Amber were one of the 6 finalists. Cheryl flew out to Hollywood for the live show.

For being such a little fish in an ocean of dog trainers and dog training facilities, it was unbelievably exciting to have a moment in the spotlight.

I am so proud of Cheryl Strelbicki-Cieslinski! She did an amazing job working with Kevin and Amber and was extremely pleased that Kevin and Amber made it into the Top 3 the night of the show.

On January 21, 2018 Dr. Manette Kohler and I presented at a Lunch N Learn at Cafe 213 in Waterford, WI. The presentation was on "Practical Solutions for Real Life Issue with a Dog." We had a full house with great attendees who were totatally engaged in the presentation. Dr. Kohler and I received requests to do future Lunch N Learn events. I will keep you posted if we schedule another presentation.
