No matter what a person’s status or level of achievement or problem with their dog, those who have reached the pinnacle or rock bottom in training do not sit on their laurels once they’ve reached a hard place or the top. They keep striving for a solution. The one core characteristic they share is hunger. And, invariably, like you, their hunger has caused them to seek out the finest resources and best coaches to help them attain—and keep—the goal, experiencing greater levels of not only achievement, but fulfilment as well.
