A terrific opportunity for exposure to new ideas . . .

28 September 2021

Yes, you’ll see below that these webinars are scheduled for January 2022 – but – this is something worth sharing with you now and you might even like to share this with your own friends. in New Paltz, NY is among the best in their presentation of educational events and seminars for dog training professionals and seriously interested pet peeps, like ourselves.

Our breed of Tibetan Terriers does not respond well to punitive training methods. Tibetan Terriers are sensitive, intuitive, precocious and smart.  Very much like a six year old child, you can manage them well with distraction and invite them to learn new boundaries with positive training.  They like nothing better than to please and amuse their humans and I believe this trio of webinars will be of interest to more than just a few of you.

The epitome of joy!

Note that there is a group pricing discount, if there are four or more of you to watch sessions together.  What a great idea for a play date sans doggies!

While I’m totally unclear on how this is going to format in an email – the draft looks good and so, here goes!

Yours truly!




Come Play with Us September 18 and 19!

Happy girl with Pierre, awaiting the arrival of Marcel – Pierre’s little brother from Kensington.

Well, the sense I get is that the time is nigh to ramp up our safety precautions and I sincerely believe that it’s better to be safe than sorry.  I’m wearing my mask when indoors with people I don’t know and when I work at the wine shop.  Gosh, I look forward to the time when we will look back on these curious times.

But in the meantime, we’re planning two get togethers later this month for all of our Kensington peeps & doggies.  We want to do this, as long as everyone has safety in mind.  Two lovely Kensington families in Rhode Island and Connecticut have offered to host play dates and we welcome anyone and everyone who has a Kensington Tibetan Terrier in their family or otherwise has a connection with our little community.

September 18 at 12pm in Rhode Island and September 19 at 12:30pm in Glastonbury, CT; that’s the plan.  If you’d like to RSVP in the affirmative?  Please reach out to me by email at  I’ll forward your emails to the hosts and they’ll provide details.  We’d like very much to have an easy outdoor picnic and ask that you bring a personal favorite of something to share at the table – we’ll have drinks – and the fun is scheduled to start at lunchtime.

Know that this post will be deleted, once the get togethers have happened, as there’s really no need for posts of this sort to be in the Kensington library.  I’m protecting everyone’s privacy, as some of you have very curious email addresses and I’ve no idea who you might be!

So, here’s to a well deserved holiday weekend!  Enjoy the extra day off, love your kids, your dog and the humans with whom you choose to share your life.  Every day is special.  Make the most of each one!  This is the lesson that I have learned from my Kensington kids.

We hope to see you at one of these play dates.

Happy Holiday Weekend!

Yours truly,
