​"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. :)"

Bob, WY, 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.
