"Michele Ellerston's webinar is fabulous.  Do this, this then this.  Watch for this.  This is what you do if your dog does this...  It is such a fabulous place to begin with! I'm training a 7 year old dog that I've only had for a few months and she is very tentative.  I'm HOPING to have her in an ORT in October.  I am so happy to have a systematic way to introduce her to container searches.  My other dogs just got it.  I've seen so many handlers with 'container problems" and I was afraid that was where I was heading.  This webinar has really given me confidence that I can work through Containers with my dog step by step in a way that will build her confidence.  YAY!  And THANK-YOU!" Cathie L.
