VLK Graduate says "Thank you"!

It is hard to put into words the gratitude I feel toward such an amazing group of dedicated and passionate people who have taken me in and enabled me to follow my dreams in K9. To find your passion and pursue your dreams is what life is all about, and I've had the opportunity to do just that. Bryan Miller and Tracy Miller thank you for giving me the steps towards success. You've given me the extra... courage to go after my dreams! You've made us feel like family. Danny Parker- thank you for allowing me to train at VLK with your outstanding trainers and for going out of your way to make sure Kurt and I were comfortable in our new place. Garrison Evans, Eddie Dickman, Luther McDonald, Kyle Peterson, Luis Rodriguez and Jacob Robinson - thank you for your passion in this profession. You are true professionals in the field of dog training and it was an absolute honor to train with you. You've taught me more than I could ever imagine.

I had a blast training with and have learned so much from Paul Montville and Greg Wilson- you two are incredible! You've shown me what hard work and dedication towards perfection with dog training can produce. Your K9 partners are amazing! I can't thank you enough for sharing your knowledge.

To Dustin Elleman - thanks again for Arwen. She is truly the best thing that has ever happened to me. She and I are making this incredible journey together and I couldn't ask for a better dog.

And for all of the fantastic people I've met along the way- I am so thankful! My handler classmates, Kurt's handler classmates and our most recent trainer classmates and handler students- stay safe out there! It was such an awesome experience to meet all of you officers from all over the country. We've got an amazing police force out there keeping us safe and making a positive difference everyday. K9 leads the way!!

Kurt Spann- to follow your dreams is one thing but to have your husband by your side makes it so much better! It's been an exciting ride!! Great job! I'm so proud of you!!

And Kenny Licklider- VLK is absolutely incredible! I've had the time of my life! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your K9 family. I've never been anywhere in my life where everyone absolutely loved what they do like they do at VLK. Hats off to you Sir.
