"Watching his commitment and the WORK he puts into helping animals thrive, and the knowledge and awareness he brings to his work, he’s already lived hundreds of lifetimes... no video will capture his thought process, the huge amount of work he puts into helping the dogs and owners, the way he orders and organizes the day... I don't feel like the same person (after this experience)... I knew everything was going to be good, but this has been just superb. I have learned so much "

Read on to see how you can learn these skills for yourself and help make a difference for so many dogs and people who need it. 

"I’ve had amazing transformations in my two behavior case fosters since coming home. Was able to confidently push them in the right direction, instinctively regained control while remaining calm and cool when they finally challenged me in this phase of discipline and reinforcement, and have had an excellent time working with them ever since, even just two days in."
