Great steps thanks to German Shepherd Training Tips


German Shepherd TrainingSo I’ve had Bennie for 4 months now and things are going really ell. It’s great! We are bonding so much better than I ever thought possible, considering we have known each other for such a short time.

I’m happy with Bennie’s progress. He is no longer peeing in the kitchen! What a relief. I was getting fed up of cleaning up pee. To be fair to him, it only too him about 8 days to get used to peeing in his spot outside and even letting me know when he needed to go. Thanks to the reminder in this article, it told me to look for signs that he will give me when he wants to go out. I did and it worked. He seems to really appreciate this too! Ok so that may be in my head!

We have made great steps forward thanks to the German Shepherd Training. It’s a great website with some really useful content. I am now thinking of enrolling him into an obedience class that we take together. I can use this website to search for classes in my area. I haven’t found a tool like this before. So that’s awesome. I think it would be good to get better at commands, i.e. sit and stay aren’t really coming yet! So that’s a must. Also he is still having issues around other dogs, so I think it will be really good if we can work on this so that he doesn’t submit every time a dog comes into contact with him.

The classes start in two weeks and start basic so we might be covering ground we don’t need to but to be honest the socialisation aspect is worth it if nothing else. So I’m looking forward to getting back on here and letting you know how we got on! I’m sure he’ll be top of his class.

Update: Taking Online CNA Classes won’t work


If you remember from a few months ago, I made a post about looking up information about nursing aid classes online…

It’s been a few months now, though.  I have been getting caught up in life, but have made some time to do research and look into how to become a nurses’ aid by taking CNA training classes online.  At first, I thought I could take online classes, but it seems that wasn’t entirely true.

See, there are a lot of websites out there that seem to tell you that you CAN attend CNA training programs online.  But there aren’t any programs out there.  There are no programs out there that let you take online CNA classes.  It just doesn’t exist!

Bummer – no CNA classes online …

This is a bummer, because online classes sound like they would be a really good fit for me, since I didn’t do well in school.  In fact, all of the pros listed in this article at uscnaclassesonline.com sound amazing.  But, apparently, there is no option for this in my state.

Instead, it looks like I am going to need to attend traditional CNA classes.  Luckily, that same website has a state-by-state directory for CNA courses here.  That means I can just click on my state and find out everything I need to know about taking CNA classes in my area.

understading online cna classes

I guess I am a little bummed out about not being able to take my classes online.  But I guess it makes sense.  After all, I am going to be working as a nurse on real patients.  So there is no sense in delaying that real-life part of my training.  If anything, it’s probably better to get that over with.

I’ll keep you posted on my progress, and let you know how it goes.  I know you guys are always in my corner, even though I feel completely lost sometimes…

Learning how to become a CNA (nurses’ aide)…


finding cna classes online infoI never really felt like I fit in, which is why I feel so lost sometimes…but I think I will make progress in my life if I learn how to become a CNA.

See, recently a good friend of mine had a sick grandmother.  She has been sick for a while.  It was really hard to watch, being so close to this friend.  Let’s call my friend Jane.

When Jane and her family had to ultimately put her grandmother into a hospice (that’s a place where CNAs and nurses’ aides take care of someone on their final days), I decided to keep her company, because Jane has always been a great friend.

When I got there, I was really impressed with the way the nurses and CNAs took care of her grandmother.  I could see the difference it made to her family.  And something in me just clicked.  I felt like that is a job where I could feel as if I belong, where I would maybe not feel so lost all the time.  That’s when I decided I wantedto be a CNA…

CNAs tell me about CNA classes online

I spoke with some of the CNAs on staff, and told them I really liked the kind of work they did.  They were very friendly, and told me that its a relatively easy job to get into, and it can even help getting a more advanced nursing job.  It sounded like a good place to start, and like maybe I found someplace I could fit in…as a nurse, nursing aide or CNA.

The nurse aides there told me that the first step is to look up information about CNA training on the internet.  There’s a lot of information out there, but they said that the website US CNA Classes Online was the best place to start.  It lays out all of the information about the requirements, and has a great step by step guide on how to become a CNA.

As soon as I went to that website I felt like everything made a lot more sense to me.  Like I was finally finding myself.  I’ll keep you posted on how I get by, learning to become a CNA nurse.
