"I am honestly so happy I took this dog course!! This course has the perfect sequence of questions that stimulate my brain in just the right order, to really get a handle on this. They don't just give you all the answers and expect you to memorize them. The questions they ask leads me to ask other questions, and through research I'm able to find the answers they are seeking. I can't say enough good things about this course!" - Nicole C
