I am insanely passionate about two things in life: Art and Dogs. I am a full-time visual artist, which affords me the opportunity to take my two Australian Terriers, Jake and Lil, to my studio most days. As a result, art and dogs have become intertwined in many ways.
Over the past couple of years, it has become apparent that the process I use to create art is the same process I use when training my dogs. Both evoke creative out-of-the-box thinking, heightened awareness and observational abilities, patience, persistence, the willingness to fail, the desire to succeed, and the development of specialized motor and mechanical skills. This blog is intended to inspire like-minded individuals to share the fun and creative ways we work and play with our dogs. –Devorah Sperber February, 2012
