    This is a great webinar! I feel like a lot of it was way over my head, but I still learned a lot! Having Grace there asking questions and learning was a great idea! They both did a great job on beautiful Ian (what a stunning and well behaved puppy he is 😍). I will definitely rewatch a few times, as there is a lot to learn!
