And just before you go - let me introduce you a bit better to Jamie...
Jamie changed my life - and it gives me a sense of pride that I changed his.
I adopted Jamie, a border collie, in 2012, only 8 months old but with behavioural baggage that would last him a lifetime.
We've gone through a few rough patches together and never given up on each other.
He's my chief motivator, inspiration, entertainer, and mindset coach.
He reminds me every day to stay balanced - from his perspective that means food, exercise, fun, and cuddles.
From my perspective that means working with more focus to find the time for lots of hikes, trick training (he can tidy up his toys, stack bowls, jump into my arms, circling backwards around me - and at least another 30 tricks), and belly rubs.
When you're working with me, you'll see him (and probably his little sister Shadow) joining my Zoom calls late, so that I have to get up and open the door for him.
