Jennifer, this is a fabulous presentation and you should be very proud of it! There were situations that you thought to present that I never would have thought of! As I have just begun babysitting for my new grandson on a weekly basis, I am very grateful that I viewed this program as it gave me good things to think about and great suggestions for some excellent things I can do to make my babysitting duties both safe and enjoyable for my grandson and my precious pooches!

You used your photos, for example those used to illustrate “a moment matters” and catch phrases such as “one hand vs. two hands”, “monkey see, monkey do” and the “grumble zone” very cleverly and well to make valid and valuable points. You did a great job of addressing “guilt” and offered marvelous suggestions for things to do such as using the photo/stop sign to remind people that the dog is intentionally being separated from the child or children.

All and all this presentation was very well thought-out, very well presented and will be very well received by anyone fortunate enough to view it! It will be my pleasure and an honor to recommend it. My congratulations to you on a job every well done.

Chris Bach, The Third Way
