My first trip to Oregon

Last weekend I was hosted by the Willamette Humane Society of Salem, Oregon.  During my fantastic two-day visit, I was able to spend time at the shelter meeting the lovely staff and choosing dogs to work with  for my live show at the Elsinore Theatre on Saturday night.  Thanks to everyone who came out last weekend and helped make my first trip to the pacific northwest so wonderful.

Here is a photo montage of the weekend produced by the Willamette Humane Society.

    Hi Victoria, I just wanted to say thank you for coming all the way to Oregon, Let alone Salem Oregon ha ha. I've learned so so much from your show and started incorporating what you had taught me about body language and communication and all the different things you showed and talked about. It's been a real pleasure. I hope your travels are safe and you are able to help as many dogs and families as possible to educate about their breed and how to train them properly. And I hope to be as great as you one day.

    With love,
    Ariel Harrison.

    P.S. My two American Eskimos, and German Shepherd Wolf mix really love the Touch game and it's been such a great recall, thanks for such a wonderful idea because I was having a hard time teaching them to come! 🙂 Again, thank you for everything that you do.

    Dearest Victoria,
    Love that you came to the great NorthWest.

    You bring tears to my eyes when I see how people and dogs light up when they see you. Thank goodness you have arrived on the scene. We're a better country for it.
    One of your biggest fans!

    We had SO much fun having you here! Thank you so much for coming! The staff and volunteers were so thrilled to meet you. My dog Charley wagged his tail when I read him the note you wrote for him. You are awesome!
