Awards and Nominations
Dog Writers Association of America encompasses all aspects of the world of dogs ~ showing, performance, behavior, training, health, and the human animal bond. We recognize many kinds of media besides journalism. Artists and photographers have joined our ranks and we include mystery and fiction writers, poets, historians and veterinarians. We have members who host national radio shows and others who appear on TV programs. Blogging, website production, social networking, and videography are among the professional activities of other members.
I was delighted to find out that I landed three awards. “The Truth About Stubborn Dogs” beat out my article “Does Your Dog Have Separation Anxiety?” My article “Timid & Under-socialized Dogs” won in its category. I was very excited about my book “How to Start a Home-based Dog Training Business” winning. Although "Separation Anxiety, a Weekend Technique" didn’t win its category, since this was the first DVD I’ve produced, to have the video nominated says that the content was fairly good. The other two videos in the competition were produced by Dog Wise, a company who is a Goliath when it come to producing DVDs. Dog Wise had landed the other two nominations. I am honored to have mine listed next to their two finalists, even though it didn’t beat them out. "Separation Anxiety, a Weekend Technique" is now part of an accredited class called “ Solving Separation Anxiety.” You can find more about this class on e-trainingfordogs.com. The video is also available through this sight as a VOD.
