“Before attending my training school, Larry was already a dog trainer and had his own business, K-9 Obedience Training. He attended my school, Amsel Training Kennels, to expand his expertise, knowledge and to become certified. While attending school, he lived at my facility. I got to know him both professionally and personally. I have nothing but good things to say about him. Larry is honest, sincere, hard working and a dedicated dog trainer.”
