I have known Ivan for a few years now and have always admired the way he thinks about how a dog thinks. We first met about 1999 or 2000. I had already been on a WUSV team with Troy. I was preparing for the following yearâ€™s events when we had Ivan come in to do a seminar. What happened was he not only helped me to see what I needed to do with my dog’s weakness, but he completely changed the way I look at dogs and how to make it “clear” to them. It was truly a huge change in my approach after that. And we became friends. I will always be grateful for Ivan’s thinking outside the box with the training and making me think differently.
