Legendary dog-trainer and author Terry Ryan draws people from around the world who want to learn to train, learn new ways to train, or improve their training techniques. A couple years ago, on a trip to Seattle, I took a side trip over to Sequim to visit Ryan’s Legacy training center, and left wishing I could have stayed longer.
Legacy is well-known for its seminars on operant conditioning, using chickens. They’ve been popular for years, and Terry Ryan just sent me an e-mail to ask us to spread the word that there are a few openings left in upcoming sessions. The class is taught by Bob Bailey, and everyone I know who has ever taken it left with more than a chicken. (Yes, adopting your chicken is possible.)
Here’s more information. It’s a great time of year to be in Sequim, too. You may never want to leave.
