In previous episodes I spoke with two young people who have participated in dog performance events and who are active in programs that help facilitate animal related activities. Today’s guest is a judge and dog trainer who is energetic and I am impressed with her ability to inspire others to work positively with their dogs. She is a teacher for young adults and has several exciting programs that we’ll be discussing during this episode. I’d like to welcome my guest Charlotte Mielziner.
