“The conformation classes held the past 4 weeks with Kelly have been outstanding!!! She has taught me more in 4 weeks than any other teacher has taught me about dog handling. She is patient, kind, and knowledgeable. This is the first class I have ever taken with Kelly and I look forward to more training with her.”
