Thank you!

Nope that's just his hair he's very laid back, is who he is, no fakeness kind of guy.

I brought my reactive dog. And yes they are all worked separate. But they are kept in a room in crates. So make sure your dog is in the end and cover the crate front with a sheet or blanket so she doesn't have to see he other dogs pass by. And just plan with other people to bring yours in and out without the other dogs around. Talk to Michael on the first day, and tell him your dog is dog reactive and have him show you the best way to get the dog in and out without causing issues. I asked ahead of time, and they told me yes, to bring my reactive dog. No problem.

We took Detection/Nosework classes from Andrew Ramsey, who now teaches them at the ME School. At the time though, the classes were at Andrew's house. The only time I was at the school was when Andrew and Jeff Frawley of Leerburg were filming the Nosework DVDs - Halo and I make a brief appearance in the first DVD, the Foundation of Nosework. They were also re-filming parts of some of Michael's DVDs where apparently the sound wasn't that great in the original, and we had to wait until they were ready for us, so we watched while they did that. Lindsey was there and a few other people I wasn't familiar with. And afterwards Michael came over and introduced himself to us and chatted for a minute.

We did private training with Lisa Maze for about 6 months, she's Michael's partner in the Loup du Soleil Belgian Malinois kennel, and she sometimes works at the school assisting with classes. I'd love to go to the school, it's not that far from me, but it's expensive!

I'd like to go, I'm sure I'd learn a whole lot, but the price of the course, cost of travel, cost of lodging is a bit too much.

I'd say if you have the money, go for it.

I figure I will save money, I have already spent tons and we are no way even close to being 'there'

Going to dog training school has always been on my bucket list, so why not, it is a perfect time having two GS pups

I've never even heard of him. Is he out in BC? I'll have to google him.

And fancy seeing you here Dotty! For a second I was confused and thought I was on the avenue
