Charlotte Peltz "Living with Your Dog" brought to you by Joy Beckner Artist/ Bronze Sculptor
Read the articles that have appeared in San Miguel's newspapers, El Consejo and Atencion, as well as The Animal News Network.
Why do I think enough of Charlotte to share her articles on my site?
"After I met Charlotte, and got to know her, in large part through her no nonsense, positive writing, I asked her if she had some articles that she would like me to share with a larger audience -- YOU! They follow -- over 55 of them!!! Plus, I tucked in an extra article that supports a lot of what Charlotte has written. I tried to cull, so as not to take so much time and space, but every time I read one of her articles, I wanted to share it. Charlotte is devoted to the well-being of dogs -- and she writes about her wealth of knowledge in a direct, homespun style that is laced with tongue-in-cheek humor. I wish I'd known about her tender training methods long ago; my life would have been sooooooo much easier -- and so would have the lives of my dogs!
"My husband Brian suggested that if you would like to take a relaxing vacation, with good food and good music around every corner, try San Miguel! I think we will again take our dogs, and this time, work with Charlotte to help train them. Email me to let me if you would like a copy of our 2002 Holiday letter that will tell about our experiences in San Miguel.
"'Living with Your Dog' is my gift to you. Read, learn, and enjoy a more rewarding experience living with your dog. Be sure to check out Charlotte's recommended reading list, which is below the articles. Happy training!" Joy Kroeger Beckner, Sculptor.

About Charlotte Peltz and Purely Positive Puppy & Dog Training
Charlotte has been training dogs in San Miguel de Allende, GTO, Mexico, since the late 1980s. She is a member of APDT (The Association of Pet Dog Trainers) and NADOI (National Association of Dog Obedience Instructors) and continues her on-going training with conferences, e-mail lists for trainers, books and videos.
The methods of training she uses are purely positive and motivational and are non-threatening to dogs and their owners. Group classes are available for puppies and adults with the goal of having well-mannered companions.
Advanced classes teach retrieving, jumping and competitive obedience exercises at all levels: novice, open and utility. Behavior problems such as jumping, food guarding, nipping, housetraining etc., are all issues that can be resolved with positive training methods, and are most often dealt with, in private classes. Growing in popularity is the positive training method that is called "Clicker" training. It's great fun -- and -- it works!
