Comments about the Class

Fabulous! Even better than I hoped.

I really enjoyed the seminar. Tom & Dave showed patience & knowledge.

I would appreciate more ID information (I am a novice). This is a great hands on training.
I am not a snake lover.

I thought the course was excellent! It was great to experience these dangerous animals in a
controlled environment. Great job.

Excellent mix of discussion & application. This workshop was very valuable to me and I wouldn't
hesitate to recommend it to others.

Wonderful seminar.

The handling was the best. It was a great presentation.

The hands on component of this seminar was extremely valuable in reducing the fear of handling
these animals and increasing the safety of possible future handlers as well as the animals.

Thank you for the opportunity. It was a very informative presentation and will greatly improve my
ability to service the public. I am much more confidant in my ability to handle dangerous animals
thanks to your training!

Great job!
