A self-proclaimed dog person and keen observer of the obvious, Jim regularly leaves his students smiling, laughing, and inspired; while somehow having learned even more than they realize. A true believer in leading by example, Jim is known for demonstrational teaching methods that highlight the skills being taught, and for helping instructors develop their unique and innate teaching style.
