Presentation given at the 2020 Conference
This is the story of a kid who walked dogs in the Big Apple when other kids were babysitting. He so desperately needed to be right he was deathly afraid to fail. Then dogs taught him they were always right, so every training outcome laid the foundation for the next training exercise . . . especially the “failures.” So he had to lean into fear and embrace failure if he was to produce police dogs that found the crooks that got away. Curiosity became the best training partner he could ever have. If he can do it ANYONE can . . . as long as they learn to love to bomb.
