What About Covid 19?  We have it covered.  In the event that it is not safe for a workshop to be held in person, it can be delivered as scheduled in a virtual workshop environment. The adaptations we have made deliver the excellent education experience for which the Dog Trainer Professional program is known while keeping everyone safe in this unique time.
