    This was an awesome class with some awesome students. Thank you Michael for starting this class, Baloo and I look forward to the next one!!!

    • Excellent! It’s a lot of fun teaching this class too because the students and their dogs are awesome. They are committed to “doing more with their dog” and that makes it loads of fun for me to teach.
