Hi,

My name is Thomas Wipperman, and I’m an AKC certified dog trainer, and I’ve been training Poodles for a long time. I would like to join the forum here to share what I know and hope that would be helpful for someone.

All of my methods rely on Positive Reinforcement, taking cues from the most up to date dog training theories.

Thanks,
Thomas

Welcome Thomas, always nice to have more folks who are serious about training. I am an AKC CGC evaluator and teach performance obedience and rally classes at my AKC sanctioned obedience club, but I don't think I know what an AKC certified trainer is.


ETA I just looked at your website and see at the top of your posts "21 Types of Poodle Mixes: Which Poodle Cross Breed is Best For You?" I think you will find that even though we welcome members whose dogs are poodle crosses that 99% of us think there is no such thing as a best poodle mix. We also for the most part think there is no such thing as a good breeder of poodle crosses. This is a place that is really all about poodles, 100% through and through poodles.

Hi and welcome. I also went to your website, I noticed you have an “Australian Shepard, Audie” but no poodle. I’m also confused by the spelling of shepherd on your website. Sorry for being picky but you mention you are a writer.

Are you participating in dog sports with Audie? What’s your favorite?
