Thank you so MUCH!

Got my Cham four days ago, to be honest I was stressed out to the max! I went to pet smart and was told to buy all the wrong things, but after listening to him he has taught me so much and completely helped me work thru everything step by step he is great at what he does and he makes it super understandable!

Don't listen to stars ,

Great for learning
