Fun and effective

"My name is Colin, and I grew up in a family with dogs. After taking this online course, I realized how much dog - training has evolved. Its actually a science! I learned to read all dog signals in a better way and became more conscious on my own communication with my dog. Our relationship has improved largely, and I strongly recommend this course to all dog owners. I also learned how Cooper and I can help others in therapy situations. After this course we got even certified and become a visiting team." - Colin 


The ABC in dogtraining

“The course was very interesting. Varied between photos and video that made it easy to follow, as well as a good summary after each block. Nice with quizzes that must be completed at the end of each block to move on - it gives extra motivation to follow. I think it was most interesting to learn about the dog's signals and health. Incredibly educational. All together, this course gives you an ABC in dog training! I have watched it two times already and keep learning something new." - Ayesha
