The walk through before tackling a rally course

'I took my new puppy to two other classes before finding Mel and her modern kind methods. Needless to say 18 months later we are still enjoying the classes and there is always something to keep us interested.

Just when you think you have mastered a position/trick or handling technique, Mel will come along with some other suggestions to help or challenge. Every class is slightly different which keeps interest for you and your dog.

I also admire Mel for adopting independent learning so that classes can be successful with varied levels of dogs and handlers enjoying it together and learning from each other.'
