Yes Bobcat, we do tend to smoke hanging out the window. We have very few non-smoking trainers.

I used to accept nonsmoker's if they were okay with me smoking, but after getting two who whined incessantly, I don't take nonsmokers at all now. I always keep the windows down, sleeper curtains closed and don't allow smoking in the sleeper, but don't say it's ok then whine and complain. I'm done with them.

I always viewed myself as a guest in his house that he was nice enough to let me stay in, so not really my place to complain. Plus I agreed to it, so it would have been incredibly rude to whine about it later.

I agree bobcat, but after 2 of them in a row, I just won't be bothered anymore. It bites for the ones who are genuine, but they can thank those 2 lol. I've trained plenty of nonsmokers in the past and most said they couldn't tell I smoked in my truck.. yep I keep it that clean and fresh. smelling.

We have added a couple more nonsmokers to the ranks of trainers, so at least there's that.

I'm more concerned with getting a trainer that likes to shower.

I wouldn’t be the whiny type. I just had the vision of me getting the one trainer that likes to smoke with the heat on and the windows rolled up. Lol. If I knew that I had a smoking trainer that smoked out the window like you said, I would be cool with that. I respect everyone’s choices. I just didn’t want to inconvenience someone in their own truck/home.
