In 2000 I attended my first Ivan seminar. By that time I had been training and successfully competing with my dogs in AKC events. My goal for the seminar was to find out more about Schutzhund. Instead, Ivan and his methods captivated me. This first seminar, and subsequent training opportunities with Ivan, changed my entire dog training paradigm. Ivan’s method of â€œClear Communicationâ€ became the foundation for my training program. Starting puppies with this approach has led to happy,confident, versatile working dogs whose success has surpassed all of my expectations. Thank You Ivan! You truly are â€œOne of a Kindâ€.
