Not just for the novice owner handler!
Attendeea at Will's recent seminar in British Columbia have their say!
I recently attended one of Will's weekend seminars, my first ever on show handling. Well worth the money! Will's got an easy way about him, throws in a few chuckles and teaches through hands on practice , discussion and pointed story telling. He made me, a complete novice, feel quite comfortable and I'd definitely recommend taking in one of his seminars.
Such a wonderful experience for our first time at a conformation seminar, the humour and kindness of Will and Patrick was so appreciated! The tips that we learned, and have been practicing, makes me look forward to our next show in May where we can utilize them! Let the fun and games begin!
I loved every minute.
I handle many different breeds, so always learning.
