"Kaffee went to his first AKC agility trial this weekend and surprised me to win his Novice Standard class on Sunday and to be the High in Class dog. The course time was 77 and he completed the standard course in 33. He ended up having a wonderful weekend with another Q in standard on Monday. On Friday he finished his Novice rally title. Cynde Leshin and Kaffee"
 
2/13/06 -- Janette Jahoda & Sassy have made tremendous progress!!!
"Amber, I wanted to let you know how happy I am with the progress we've made with Sassy. I started in September with a dog that was scared of everything. She would pee herself anytime someone tried to pet her. She didn't know any obedience commands. She wasn't housetrained. In short she was a little psychoatic. Now she is completely housebroken. She also goes on command when needed (such as in a strange place). She used to jump on all of my furniture like a cyclone. Now she only goes where she's allowed. She used to bolt through the front door and chase cars down the street. Now she will wait at an open front door and never leaves or runs down the street. She used to not come when called. Now she comes (we'll most of the time...). She now sits to get her dinner and when you show her a treat. There is alot more, but the biggest improvement is how friendly she is now to most people and not afraid anymore. You helped with her confidence. Thank You! Janette Jahoda & Sassy"

1/15/06 -- Jo Reifman and Yahtzee earned their first Q (and a first place) in Novice Regular at the Jumping Chollas NADAC trial!!!
"Amber, I can't thank you enough for sharing your knowledge with Yahtzee and me. I was REALLY hoping he would "Q" on the run we dediciated to you, I just knew we were ready. But when we got that "Q" for the Teeter, I couldn't have been happier if I won a million dollar lottery. I'm not one to keep going when something gets hard, I usually just give up. But I wanted to prove I could do SOMETHING and not give up. With your help and guidance, more than just a "Q" came through! Your lessons add confidence and hope. You let me know it can be done! May take a zillion years, but it can be done! Thanks, Your Friends, Jo & Yahtzee"
