"Thank you for your recent seminar in Temeculah. I enjoyed myself and I learned a lot. My clients are getting more detailed homework instructions and I am excited by the success I'm seeing. You reminded me to be thorough in my history taking and to be more conscious of how I say things. I have become more thoughtful in the last week and a half and I have corrected myself when I was being judgmental or sloppy with my words. ...You possess a rare gift in the dog training world - you are good with people and you like them. Your enthusiasm for working with people is contagious and I am a better trainer as a result. Thank you for sharing your gift with the rest of us."

"I enjoyed your seminar so much! I had identified it as a good way to help my new employee (Lynn) learn the people skills that are sooooo important to one-on-one dog training and it was great for that. But I also picked up so many great points, both for the actual training side and the business side."
