"THANK YOU for an amazing course. We both enjoyed it so much and I learned a ton. Josie is my first dog so I’m brand new to this, I feel so much more confident and that our bond has strengthened"

- Rafaella, human to Josie

“We LOVED this experience! Our teacher was really encouraging and patient with all of our questions. It was so helpful to learn more techniques and feel like we have tools/resources to continue training moving forward. Thank you, thank you!”

- Olaitan, human to Coconut

“The Zoom class was great. Sian could observe my dog and my technique in real time and suggest ways to improve. I really liked the positive reinforcement approach to training. She had great suggestions and was very easy to work with. She also answered many questions I had. I think I will be able to apply some of the techniques to training more behaviors”

- Mitch, human to Leo
