|Sandi is a DVG Judge...Is absolutely one of the best people to ever be judged by...She always makes everyone feel at ease...I think one of the best assets of Sandi is the way she helps NEW Handlers feel at ease...and for anyone who's never trialed before...Your nerves will go through the roof...But Sandi will flat out make you feel Great..and at Ease...|
Although I've never been to a seminar by her...I have had the pleasure to trial under her and she's always fun to be around...Before...During...and After the trial...
