Suitable for all levels and had just the right touch.
An excellent course with up to date thinking based on good research about canine behaviours. I particularly liked the style of teaching. Suitable for all levels and had just the right touch.
I found it stimulating, encouraging and above all, not patronising. It will be very helpful to me on my road as an animal Reiki therapist working with a wide variety of breeds in a rescue centre. I am now much more aware of calming signals and subtle signals that the dog is ready to accept contact.
I would recommend it to anyone wanting to enhance their understanding and communication with dogs.

It’s an act of professionalism and evolution.
This is definitely the easiest way to study a course. I was surprised to see how easy and how everything is made to be suitable to learn in the comfort of your house or on the way. It is easy, not demanding, flexible and not as hard as regular college courses.
The fact that you are also obtaining a diploma is magnificent. This will be something that I will recommend and I will also buy more courses in the future.
More companies should do that. It’s an act of professionalism and evolution. We need more people like you to do that! Awesome job and thumbs up.

Am enjoying it so much
I am half way through studying this course and am enjoying it so much. The course content is so easy to read and follow, and the modules are well structured with assignments at the end of each module to test your knowledge.
Studying online enables you to learn at your own pace without the pressure of having to commit to classroom attendance. Support is available via email however the course notes have been so well structured that I haven’t had to use this yet.
I would recommend this course to anyone interested in learning more about dogs and their communication.
