    Thanks for all your help with Bruno. We all feel much more confident now with his training. I think that your sessions are just as much geared towards training us as a family to be consistent as well as giving us some great fun ideas to get Bruno to be a good pup. Also thanks for taking the photos of our final training session on the beach they are fab.
