In the coming months, we’ll be looking at various ways to develop content for your blog or newsletter. One of these content exploration tools is Flipboard (flipboard.com). Do yourself a favor and watch the following videos and read about it….. then go and look it over, using your computer, smartphone or tablet, and start a free account.

CLIENT SPOTLIGHT

Camilla Gray-Nelson of Dairydell Canine

I developed my nature-based training style based on my early life on the farm.   I observed our cows, horses and dogs organizing and operating within their own world and saw how they chose their leaders and most importantly — how they maintained their peace.
As an adult, I could see how trainers and dog owners used harsh and intimidating techniques that were not consistent with how my familiar animal leaders acted.  I wanted people to stop yelling at their dogs!  To stop instilling fear with the misguided notion that that was the way to “be the boss” and get obedience.

That’s it for this month!  Let us know if you have any comments or questions by emailing bill@greyvisual.com or calling (928) 910-4150. Happy marketing!
