Last year with you was the 'Best'. In addition to teaching very challenging classes you also instill a lot of motivation and 'winning' attitude in the handler. You have helped me a lot and I appreciate it. ... I noticed in the results of the trial that you did well this weekend. Congratulations! I think it's your winning attitude that puts you and your dogs over the top. - October 2010
