Steve and Wes communicate in the way a dog needs to hear and understand, and an extra "perk" is that the training is ONE DOG (yours) in the class. No more waiting for another dog or another owner to straighten out or stop talking ... the classroom time is all yours, and it's all good. We are so happy. It may seeme a bit expensive, but you could easily spend MORE money taking multiple courses and a lot more time than it takes at the Canine Classroom. It's definitely worth the time and money. We highly recommend it.
