Thanks to Rebecca Thrift!

Oriole wants to thank Rebecca Thrift for a wonderful three days of instruction during the OMD seminars this past weekend! Great reviews from attendees, and the puppies, young dogs and people new to OMD did fantastic! We have tons of great things to practice now :-).  Becca is back in December – the working spots are full, but there is lots to learn from auditing too!
