Oncology Training Comments:
"Thank you so much for coming to speak on Oncology Nursing to the BVNA Hampshire region last night. The evening was enjoyed by all who attended and it was nice to see nurses so keen to learn about such an important part of our work."
Laura, Regional BVNA coordinator for Hampshire, July 2015.
"Linda has been a wonderful teacher. 5 stars. Always willing to help and quick to answer questions. She is very kind and knowledgeable (that goes without saying really, as she is a KPA partner and tutor!)."
Jennie, Karen Pryor Academy Professional Dog Trainer Program student, Apr 2015
"I have recently watched your Puppies: Socialisation, Classes and Early Learning parts 1 and 2, and the Introduction to Clicker Training webinars that are available on Vet Nurse Online. I have found these very helpful and informative in helping me to structure the classes and what information to give/teach - thank you."

"I have just organized a Puppy Talk for our clients. Linda was very approachable and it was very easy to arrange the talk. Two hours presentation covered so much, including training tips and behaviour problems. Everybody really enjoyed it... It was fun, well-taught & definitely worth the time & money."
Jana, Veterinary Nurse, Vets4Pets - Jul 2014
"I was at the PHC refresher last week and found your talk on clicker training fascinating. Having had them [clickers] on our counter at work for years I can honestly say I've never really known how to use them. I am now converted and will definitely be advising clients on the benefits. I also intend on having a go myself with my dog Claire. "

"Enjoyed this talk & will make me change my approach to puppies & parties."
"Excellent way of giving a new perspective."
"Good, helped answer questions."
"Thank you for your participation in the Karen Pryor Academy program. You showed good “clicker spirit” in your interactions with dogs, clients & fellow students. You were skillful, considerate & effective in training your loaner dog. Overall, your training skills were good, as seen by videos of training your own dog, in your written homework assignments, & in the work done on site at Legacy. In the teaching assignment, you showed courtesy & warmth towards your students, & were happy, upbeat & kind - it’s obvious that you have had teaching experience. Keep up the good work."
Terry Ryan, KPA Faculty Member/Instructor & President of Legacy Canine, Sept 2012
