Testimonial from rescue volunteer: \\"The one hour with Donny cannot be overestimated...it was nothing less than life changing for me as a foster and with my own dog, and certainly for Buckwheat. Now that I am armed with some simple info and skills, Buckwheat is a new dog. He went to his first adopt-a-thon in close quarters with about a dozen dogs, and the first question I was asked by each prospective adopter was...is he always this calm?! He is having a home visit tomorrow with someone who met him at the adopt-a-thon and who very much wants to adopt him. I feel that future fosters will go much smoother for our family and for our foster dogs because of this workshop. I wish all fosters could go BEFORE they get their first dog, and I think that new adoptions would be smoother and more successful if the adoptive family would spend an hour with Donny. After all the workshop is really for the people, not the dog! Just because we love dogs doesn’t mean we understand them or know how to lead them. Thanks so much for the opportunity to meet with him, feel free to pass along my praises!\\"
