    I had inquired about this program myself some years ago. I have heard both positive and negative reviews. I believe that these reviews are based on an individuals approach to dog training. Tom Rose works with the likes of Belgian Malinois, a smart and obedient breed, however, a very serious and watchful dog with strong protective and territorial instincts, that needs a serious job to do. For this reason, one’s approach to training a dog breed like this would be different then that of, let’s say, a Golden Retriever. In my opinion from what I learned of the school is that it’s top-notch. I believe this school is versatile enough that one will learn how to approach many different breeds of dogs and be successful in it’s training.
    There is one other school that I had inquired about that is located in Austin, Tx. The name of this school is Triple Crown Academy.
    My top pick would be Tom Rose, yet again, consider the type of training that your trainer/junior handler is aiming for and if poosible, have her visit both schools with a list of questions she might have. I wish her the best 🙂

    If you were involved in schutzhund at all, you would’ve heard of him. All I know is, I’ve seen some pretty piss poor “certified” helpers come out of there. But, that goes with all dog training “schools”.
