Welcome to my First Blog!

Welcome. My name is Maureen Ross author of Awareness Centered Training – ACT. ACT is an educational dog book that brings peace of mind -to dog parents too! As a passionate dog lover, trainer, behaviorist, counselor, yoga teacher, business manager and author (phew) I know what it likes to multi-task, and find quality time to enjoy our beloved dogs!

I have been living and learning with dog since childhood. Some of my, and my client’s stories, are shared through-out aCT. ACT is a heart-centered project and wise sequel to Train Your Dog, Change Your Life. I had the benefit of 10 more years of practice, including mistakes, that are opportunities to learn. I share this in a genuine, joyful and nonjudgemental way. ACT is more than a positive training program/book. It’s about awareness, education, relationship, well being and how to reduce sensory overload/stress in your and your dog’s lives.

I welcome you as a visitor to my blog and websites which I will share below. I’ll be using this blog to interact with you about Awareness Centered Training – ACT, expanding on some of the topics near and dear to my heart, and posting on some of the ideas related to my book/passion, including pet assisted therapy. This is a great place for you to get to know me, my dogs, share and renew. I’m looking forward to getting to know you, too. For a moment, stop, take in a deep nose-to-navel breath, hold, a little more, exhaling … ah-ha. Listen to your dog’s breathe.

When you download ACT’s e-book or finish the soft cover, available at all major booksellers, let me know what you think of Awareness Centered Training – ACT? What questions do you have for me? How do you relate to my book / your relationships with dogs? How have dogs changed your life?

I’ll be returning frequently with new posts and responses to feedback from you. Until next time, tell me a little bit about yourself and enjoy the journey, living and learning with dogs.

To learn more about me and the pack, visit www.dogtalk.com, www.newenglandpetpartners.org, www.dailydoga.com. Sign-up for any or all of my e-newsletters. I told you I was passionate! At Dog Talk Media, enjoy a few articles in The Learning Zone. Visit http://www.youtube.com/dogtalkmedia for vignettes that collaborate with ACT. I will be adding more … be well,

    Thanks Vicki — sorry this took so long, but Word Press is a learning experience. I find it easier to design whole websites, then try to organize this blog. Working on it! Be well, Maureen and Teams at New England Pet Patners, Inc.
