Are you looking to make a change in the new year? Maybe trying to look at life through a different perspective or learning to not sweat the small stuff? Then let me - Horace - help be your guide. I have a PhD in the art of letting things go and finding the best in any situation. After I received my PhD, I did a fellowship at the school of hard knocks, where I was able to find the positive in life even after I lost the ability to see. Turns out not being able to see only enhanced the wonderfulness of cuddles! Though I must admit it was difficult to give up my dreams of becoming a professional tennis ball boy at Wimbledon. Luckily for you though, now that I am not training to become a ball boy, I have enough time to help you start the new year off right, if I find the cuddle to teaching ratio is acceptable. I am a tough, hands on teacher though, and if you leave the room before the lesson is over (helpful hint...if you are in the house the lesson is not over), I will let you know.

I get along great with and am willing to teach all sizes of humans and other four-legged friends, and the first lesson is always patience. I like to teach everyone to go slow and enjoy all that life has to offers before moving on to more advanced course. Once everyone passes the first lesson, I will normally move on to either cuddles 101 or tug-o-war 201. Outside of being a great teacher and a professional cuddle bug I have one additional talent...even when I am in the room you can still dance like no one is watching.

So, like I mentioned above, I am looking for students that are willing to learn how to stress less and be happier in the New Year. If this is you, then you are in luck as I am accepting application for the upcoming semester.
