I am one of the people who have benefited greatly from your advice. Being a great handler and being a great teacher are not necessarily the same things, and I always appreciate people's advice in the handicapped-by-remote-communication situation which makes it harder to respond. But your responses had all the ingredients of excellently formed and useful advice.
The two mistakes people often make are giving pat answers and limiting oneself to (constructive of course)criticism. However, rather than matching a problem to a ready-made solution, your advice was always individual, replying to a particular situation and you always made sure to include encouragement and good points which set up a good basis for the actual work with one's dog.
Thank you again for all your terrific help!

Always thought this was an amazingly cool feature on the forum, "ask an expert".
