Sue Frisch is a professional dog trainer with 25+ years of experience working with dogs and their owners. She is a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) and the National Association of Canine Scent Work (NACSW) and Tri-State Dog Obedience Club (TSDOC). After 25 years managing an animal shelter while also running a dog boarding business at her farm and teaching training classes at night, Sue’s expertise includes everything from basic manners training and behavior modification to dog psychology, nutrition, and exercise. Over the years she has worked with hundreds of families and their pet dogs. Sue knows that the science of canine behavior and training—and the resulting training techniques—is a field in constant development, and she makes sure to keep abreast of the latest discoveries. She regularly attends seminars with eminent behaviorists and dog trainers, and reads every significant book and publication on relevant topics. She is currently an American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen Evaluator, is in the instructors training course for K9 Nose Work and studying to become a C.L.A.S.S. evaluator for the APDT’s Canine Life and Social Skills program. Through her business, Your Dog’s Place, Sue helps dog owners train dogs of all sizes, ages, and temperaments to be polite four-legged family members—and she gives dogs a home away from home when they board at her farm, Countryside Kennels. Sue lives in Honesdale, PA, with her four dogs, Mackie, April, Mystery, and Monkey.
Parks and Recreation may resurrect one of its best gags for a sequel! So get ready to Treat Yo' Self!
Parks executive producer Mike Schur tells TVGuide.com that the writers have been kicking around ideas for Round 2, which would surely see Donna (Retta) and Tom (Aziz Ansari) reunite for their annual day of luxury, during which they treat themselves to the spa and shopping.
Parks and Recreation Scoop: Will Leslie win back the lot?
"We've certainly talked about it because it was a thing that caught on with the fans and the internet lit up, but it's very risky to do that," Schur says. "You can only do it if it's better than the first time, because there's nothing worse than a disappointing sequel."
Considering "Treat Yo' Self" is Tom and Donna's annual tradition - which first aired during an October Season 4 episode - it seems likely we would see it return sometime before the end of Season 5.
Parks and Recreation Scoop: Leslie's wedding and Tom's new business venture
"We really loved it and we thought it was really funny and I think it's maybe the funniest that Retta's ever been," Schur adds. "It's maybe one of my favorite Tom episodes and everyone was great, but we're only going to do it if we can do it in a way that feels like it's something new and different and more fun than the first time."
Do you think Parks should resurrect our favorite day? And what would you like to see Tom and Donna - and hopefully Ben (Adam Scott) again - do during "Treat Yo' Self 2.0"? Hit the comments!
Parks and Recreation airs Thursdays at 9:30/8:30c on NBC.
