Personal Instruction

Limited (25 of 25 remaining)
reward item
$50
per month
Both physical fitness and dog training come into play in hiking with your dog.  As a certified Personal Trainer, former Veterinary Technician and a former Obedience Instructor with over 25 years of experience training dogs and their owners, this puts me in a unique position to work with both hiker and dog with regard to trail readiness.  In addition to all other tier rewards, patrons who select this tier level will receive one training session per month, one hour in length.  Let's get you (and your dog) in shape!  For less than what you would pay a personal trainer OR a dog trainer, you will get BOTH in a one-on-one Skype session!  Disclaimers:  I am not a nutritionist, physician or veterinarian.  Always consult your doctor before beginning any fitness routine or making changes to you or your dog's diet or exercise regimen.  With regard to dog training, I do NOT deal with serious behavioral issues (major aggression).  My scope of expertise is in basic and intermediate obedience.

About

After a separation, double mastectomy and 5 years of harrowing reconstructive procedures left me overweight and depressed, I knew something had to give.  My activity was limited after all those surgeries, so I began walking (the only activity I was approved to do at the time) with my dog Rama.  Walking soon became hiking, then camping.  Being alone in the woods with my dog brought me the peace I'd desperately needed to help me heal.  Movement and the outdoors literally became my medicine.  

Life has a way of exhausting you beyond just the physical.  This is why many people are starting to return to nature, seeking the tranquility and joy it can provide.  It is my hope that by sharing my journey to completely change my life that I can show others that they, too, can learn new skills, gain confidence in the outdoors and in themselves, and find the peace that so many of us so desperately need.  

I hope to grow Walks With Rama into a community of like-minded individuals who are seeking to learn, to grow and to change their lives for the better.  I will share my journey--all the ups and downs--toward creating something meaningful that will hopefully help others to change their own lives, to feel less lonely and more confident and courageous about pursuing their passions, whatever those may be.  It is never too late.  I hope you will join me in making this dream of mine become a reality.  For it was on those walks with Rama that I discovered how being active in the outdoors with my best girl can completely transform your mind, body and soul.  A dog and a dirt trail can heal.

When I reach $500 per month, I'll be able to upgrade my video editing software to make our content the very best it can be!
