Raising dogs…slowing down speeds things up
By: Jeremy Moore
As a professional dog trainer, I’ve been able to work with various breeds of a large number of dogs over the years, ranging from 7 week-old puppies to dogs as old as 10 years or more. I strongly believe that one of the only ways to get better at anything, whether you’re talking dog training specifically or life in general, is to put in the work. And more times than not, the whole “work” part is where things start to get hard! Thankfully, I’ve had a lot of opportunities to put that work in when it comes to the dogs. And, consequently, I know I have gotten a lot better as the years passed. As I have personally improved, the dogs have mirrored that improvement as well. Today, I can say with strong confidence that when I have a chance to work with a puppy or dog, I will be a positive influence on them and my hope is they are better off because of it as well.

On any given fall Sunday in Wisconsin (and across Packer Nation everywhere), it can happen. “It” is the moment when all green and gold faithful take a collective breath and a pause from whatever it is they are doing-THIS IS IMPORTANT. Eating and drinking stop, plates are held in mid-air, and silence is golden… the pressure is tangible as it emanates from 1265 Lombardi Ave in Green Bay…3 clicks left on the clock, the stadium is packed but is eerily silent… Continue Reading

Well, this one snuck up on us! Invasive water hyacinth has been a huge problem in the lakes, rivers and streams of Africa, South America and the southeastern United States for many years. We thought we were protected from it up here in Wisconsin above the 40th parallel, the supposed northernmost reach of the plant. We were mistaken. Continue Reading
Color Contrast in Training
There are No Grey Areas
By: Jeremy Moore
Chances are, if you look outside this time of year, you are going to see white, a lot of white. In our home state of Wisconsin, deer seasons have come to an end for the most part and we are moving on to the next season of outdoor activities; most of which include ice and or snow. These are also the kind of conditions that make most professional dog trainers load up their trailers and head south. But for trainers and dog owners like myself, these are the conditions I look forward to during those potentially hot, humid months of June, July and August. Continue Reading
Wild Apple Trees
By: Lawanda Jungwirth
Do you remember the story of Johnny Appleseed from grade school? It is more than just a story; Johnny Appleseed was a real person named John Chapman, born in 1774. Legend has it that he spent years walking throughout Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, West Virginia and Ontario, Canada randomly dropping apple seeds along the way. The truth is that he was a knowledgeable nurseryman and a noted conservationist. Continue Reading

Merrill and I have been grilling as a team for 33 years now. We have seen, heard and grilled it all! We have seen many changes in the grilling industry and the way meats are harvested. Let’s go back to 1952 when gloriously colored, 22 ½ inch charcoal grills hit the scene. That’s how it all started. Three layers of coals, a full can of lighter fluid and the CAVE MAN’S HOTTEST HEAT MACHO MAN GRILLER WAS BORN! (Better known as carcinogen man). Continue Reading
