Well I work in a pet store so I talk dogs a lot. I enjoy nutrition talks a lot...I love it. People actually listen to me...and I think it's because I start out pretty honestly. I tell them flat out that you are paying for the brand, not the nutrition, with Science Diet or Eukanuba. I am open about recalls and my opinion of where the Diamond foods are made.
I talk training sometimes but usually not unless I am asked.

Good lord I get the same thing. "Yeah I've delved into competition OB, looking at doing rally, etc etc"..people think I'm weird. It's ok. But other sports people are cool with like dock diving, they say oh yeah I saw that on TV the other day!
