This course was my first and best experience in K9 Kennel training. Hands on training and clear understanding, and I will never forget my leash again. Good job guys!

The experience was a good learning experience and essential for my dog team to have a productive human location search. It is a more effective way to find people and more reliable. I had a great experience and learned much from it.
