Today is a sad day as we are saying goodbye to one of our trainers, Tommaso. Tommaso is going to continue his European adventures in Germany and, somehow, we didn’t get him to commute every Wednesday to keep giving you his puppy class.
Those of you who had him as a teacher will remember his humane and respectful approach to dogs and people, and enjoyed his always irreverent sense of humour. He wasn’t afraid of ridicule as he donned the veterinarian’s lab coat or a burqa. He was the king of role play as he acted out the various stimuli we wanted the pups to get used to. Tommaso wasn’t just a people person and a dog person, he also came to us with impressive certifications and a huge bag of knowledge and experience on dog cognition (check out his credentials).
As a friend and colleague, we will miss the same talents: his humour and irreverence, and the way that he could connect with people instantly, and get us to think of the big questions.
We will miss you, Tommaso. Good luck in Germany!by
