- Very good! I didn't want it to end Review by JKatz
- Nicole Wilde's presentation is excellent. I particularly enjoyed the dog park play videos. I bought this set to share with park friends to help them be more proactive helping their dogs enjoy the park. Lots of good suggestions for owner intervention prior to arousal turning to aggression or to predict a scuffle or fight in the making. (Posted on 3/19/13)
