My soul dog, Fred and I are gearing up -- and sizing down -- for our BIG MOVE into TINY LIVING!


In just two days, my three year-old Labrador retriever and I will shed all but the bare necessities in physical possessions, and begin our “lighter life” as RV dwellers in the Kern River Valley!

With this change in physical space comes a drastic reimagining of our very place in the world! The ultimate goal is complete freedom to move about the country at will, working from anywhere and everywhere, helping dogs and their people live happier, healthier, more balanced lives together! A new, web-based landscape will reshape the way we do our work, share our knowledge and experience, and engage more meaningfully (and personally) with our supporters!

My training clientele will evolve from a handful of individuals within the city limits of Bakersfield, to a limitless array of people and dogs spread about from sea to shining sea!

As a monthly contributor to our Patreon account, you will become, in part, a “chooser of our adventures”. You will have direct access to exclusive dog training content, and *human-canine lifestyle guidance in the form of online classes, private Skype chats, and live feed Q & A’s, during which you’ll be able to ask questions and request training demos from Fred and me in real time!

Eventually, procuring consistent support from our online community in exchange for dog training guidance and lifestyle coaching, will mean the financial and professional freedom to POINT OUR VESSEL IN YOUR DIRECTION, and come train with you in person once our rig is paid off and road worthy!

Goals
$0 of $500 per month
Our goal to start is simply to take this HUGE LEAP, and land somewhat gracefully in our TINY NEW PAD far, far away!

Our first month’s Patreon funding will infuse this multi-faceted transition with some financial lubricant, helping to cover the many expenses of moving; and further, to pad the gap between tapering-off local jobs in Bakersfield, and tapping into the new revenue stream this campaign is meant to cultivate. As the ENTREPRENEURIAL TRANSITION to becoming a completely mobile enterprise over time, will mean working with fewer clients in person, and developing an expanded clientele of dog training and lifestyle coaching clients and students, via Skype and other online platforms.

In the LONGER TERM and BIGGER PICTURE, your continued support becomes an INVESTMENT in the very “life stuff” Fred and I aim to GIVE BACK TO YOU -- the very people who make it possible for us to follow our dreams, fulfill our lives’ work, and share what we experience and learn along the way!

Your continued support will eventually mean BETTER QUALITY CONTENT, as I become able to spend more time and creative energy producing videos, developing curriculum, writing, etc. Someday, I even hope to hire professional video editors to make our tutorials, stories and vlogs that much cooler! Many have suggested I write a book…Earning a living through an innovative platform like Patreon might just be the way for me to do it!

This move, from a 3100 sq. foot house in a good-sized city, to a teeny, tiny 5th wheel trailer in a town of 2,200 people, means a FUNDAMENTAL SHIFT in the very way we live! It is a benchmark shift on our journey to freedom, independence and stability-via-mobility!

Fred and I THANK YOU so much for your support, and are so happy you're coming along with us for the RIDE!
