"Lynn works with many different types of dogs and is well respected in the herding field. She is great. She manages to keep the class involved when working with different dogs, so that everyone learns from each others' handling. She is a friend and is very helpful to those starting out. I value the individual skill building tasks to hone up on overall performance." - Donna

"I believe there were Belgians in the Downriver All Breed Herding video. I really liked this video and thought it provided more good information than any of the other videos I've seen combined (and I've seen a few). I think for practical, beginning information, it's by far the best I've seen and would have been great if I had only seen it when I first started training." - Shelby Cook
