"I have enjoyed this course sooo much and have learned loads.

"I have enjoyed the course very much and learned a whole lot.
Not just about training dogs with a different mind set,
approach and new skills, but I learned a lot about myself
and how I need to improve on many levels.
Learning comes through pleasure - as it should. :)"

"I really appreciated seeing the steps to make this complex game seem
simple to learn. That's exactly what I was hoping to get out of this course."
Cyn, VT USA
Yes indeed this has been beyond the most absolute pleasure to
partake in the 9/2015 WIG's instructors course.
I could not have imagined in advance just how valuable
it would be. It's already changed my training
and teaching approach. One million THANK YOUs.
