Thank you!
Thanks, that was me....and Thank you Rob for setting up a new spot of us.

I would love it too. I hope to train Sadie some day for therapy work. I think hearing wonderful stories that people share about the work they do will help to keep me motivated.

I have great aspirations, but can see myself getting frustrated along the way. The new forum should be a great help. Thanks!

Thank you, Thank you! This will be a great resource and help understanding both frustration and reward for these fantastic teams. That way people can really know what to train for, look for in their dog and what troubles or concerns might occur along the way.
Thank you again
