"Yesterday I completed my Dog Trainer Foundations course. I say ‘my’ because I have become very attached to this place of learning, virtual as it may be. It was a marvelous experience—a life-changer really."
– Barbara G.

"It is a perfect match for my background in animal behavior. I wish I had learned about it sooner."
– Kim P.

"I am a dog trainer working in Iceland. I think it is very important for all dog trainers to keep educating themselves and not get stuck in old habits. Foundations helped me get up and keep on moving! Thanks again."
– Johanna Reykjalin

"I not only feel like this was an investment in my own training, but in the happiness on my dog."
– Jennifer F.

The course is excellent, combining information with activities and videos so that the learner can ‘see’ both trainer and dog at work and learning… and then be that trainer.
