Travel Stories
We had a fantastic turnout for our Triple Treat of Travel Stories. Nineteen women braved the wild winds to hear wonderful travel tales of sand, wind and sea. So many, I couldn't fit you all into the photo.
Juls took us on a journey through the pristine paradise of King Island. A land of beautiful coastline, towering lighthouses, spectacular golf courses and cheese.
Leta then revealed some of the secrets of ancient Mungo with its lunar landscape and immense sand dunes. Mungo has a special energy that has to be experienced to be understood.
Our final adventure was shared by Jo and Lois, who took us on their 5 month trip across some of the remotest areas of Central and Western Australia with their canine companion, Jessie and pop up caravan in tow.
A big thank you to our four wonderful presenters who put so much time and effort into creating their presentations for us to enjoy.

Look forward to seeing you at our next fantastic LGT session on 5 July where the fabulously talented Prue who will give us a taste of theatre improvisation.
Please book in with me at pamela.lemonzest@gmail.com or record your attendance on the Facebook event for this exciting talent session.

Introduction to Dog Training

You can teach an old dog new tricks! Julie gave us a fantastic interactive demonstration on how easy it is to communicate our expectations with our dogs by rewarding positive behaviour with the use of a clicker and treats. 
We practised on each other with the clickers and learnt almost as quickly as our canine demonstrators, Scrumpy and Thea, who were both model students. You could almost see their minds working out what Julie wanted them to do in order to get their click and treat. Those of us who like jellybeans were also eager to please our trainers - sticking tongues out, putting hands on hips, touching our nose or the back of the chair, etc., all done without words. It was a fun and informative night. 
For those of you who missed out on tonight’s brilliant and enlightening demonstration, and would like help with your canine family, Julie’s business website is:  www.seespotsit.com.au.
