 Book Testimonials:

 * Small dog took first in Open Puppy yesterday. 18 starters - four points. Your book
     made a huge difference in some of my handling skills. Thank you!!! Belinda (1/21/2007)
 * The book was insightful and motivating like I knew it would be. Thank you for your
    encouragement. Glen (8/2/2007)
 * We are very excited about Sophie, our new puppy. I need training to train her! The book is
    soooo helpful. Sara (10/23/07)
 * BIG Brag....below is Hannah & Lenci with the following from her proud dad: Hannah has
    taken "Winning Ways" very seriously and has become her training bible. Spring '08 was a
    great season for Hannah. She ran Lenci in the derby stakes. Two 1st placements, a 2nd, a
    3rd and a 4th! One of her "Blue's" came from a very competitive 16 dog stake. She will be
    doing Junior Showmanship this fall (once she turns 9) and is starting to train Lenci for Senior
    Hunter. Hannah finished #5 in the country in '07 for Juniors in outdoor field events. Not bad
    for a 7, turned 8 in Aug of 07, year old!  She had a win last year, 3 placements and a JH (all 4
    legs), all on her own. Would you believe she started at five years old? What an inspiration to
    we older folks.  Way to go Hannah!!! Troy (5/31/08)
