    I know everyone has experiences or laughs to share. Feel free to join in, that way we all can have some assurance that we aren't the only crazy ones out there.

    You know you're a dog trainer/handler when...you get your Fiancee her own whistle and duck call on a lanyard for Valentine's Day!

    You know you're a dog trainer/handler when...when you are repeatedly asked to start using all the frozen training ducks that you are hoarding in the freezer!

    You know you're a dog trainer/handler when...you use the engineering graphing paper at work to draw to scale setups of your training grounds!

    Approaching a crowded bar to get a drink, and you say ''come in Judy'' , and the guy's make a path 'looking for your dog', and your wife gets her way to pay for the drinks.

    When you walk around after the last dog has been worked with the whistle sill in your mouth.
    When you go out to the kennel in your undies to quiet them down at night

    You know you're a dog trainer when you arrive back at the house and discover a piece of equipment is missing. After checking everywhere, you drive back to the training grounds for the retrieve and discover it was in the van all the time.
