(neither has the OP.)

It sometimes takes a bit for people get their schedules set. It is a million times more difficult if one of the parties has a busy not near the phone type job (horse barn/training) and the other does not have any form of voice mail.


I see nothing wrong with you leaving her another message and simply saying, 'now that I am back in school my schedule has changed from what I left the other day, the best times to reach me now are <several time options>'.

You can cover your bases by sending her a note on facebook too.

I would agree. If I were this trainer I would think this person really WANTS to be helped.

I have had this happen to me and I get busy also. So many times I will get a call then nothing. Those people are just what I call tire kickers and anyone that called back with an honest reason why we missed connections I am more than willing to reschedule my response.

infamous for being hard to get in touch with

I don't think I have EVER gotten a hold of a trainer on the first try. When I was young and DESPERATELY wanting lessons I had to travel quite a distance to get them as there was nothing in my area. I called and called, left messages, wrote letters, etc. Come to think of it I've had the same issue with dog trainers. (especially the good ones! ;) )

I don't think it would be nagging to let her know your new schedule.
