"I've learned more than I ever could in a classroom. The experience of dealing with many dogs and people every week has allowed me to grow as a person. I'm more confident in myself, talking to and helping others, and in the idea that my knowledge of dogs can help others. I am now more self-assured in my ability to read and control a group of dogs. I know that I have much, much more to learn but feel that I now have a solid basis of knowledge to build upon."
