Jeanie Neal Summer Lessons


Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better. What if they are a little coarse and you may get your coat soiled or torn? What if you do fail, and get fairly rolled in the dirt once or twice? Up again, you shall never be so afraid of a tumble.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Posted May 2, 2019: I have arrived at Husky Homestead in Alaska. If you would like to follow along with this summer adventure, I’m am blogging a little on this page: Alaska Adventure. Fall registration is open to everyone now. Please register before June 9 to get the free remote lessons. Click for my fall session page. I’ll be back in September. Have a great summer!

Posted January 30, 2019: I will be spending my first-ever summer away from the pool. It’s time for a little adventure. This summer, I will be working a temporary office job at Musher Jeff King’s Husky Homestead just outside Denali National Park in Alaska. I will be back in the fall to continue with my Face-Up First® lessons at Omaha Home for Boys. Please check back. I will be posting some lesson alternatives for this summer. Registration for my fall lessons back at OHB will open in April.

This is a big leap for me, and I’m taking a bit of a risk. I’m excited for this summer of dogs and adventure in Alaska; and hope that everyone will return for more good times in the pool with me in the fall. If you have any questions about summer swimming, fall swimming, Alaska, or about Husky Homestead, please feel free to contact me via email or use this contact Jeanie Neal form.
