    Covers all the essential basics!

    This course is really really interesting. It covers everything you need to know through a series of PDF files that explain important dog training techniques in a fun and interesting way.
    Overall, I’d say it’s a fantastic course with lots of really valuable information.

    Looking forward to returning to dog training after the lockdown is over.

    Great Course

    I have a number of dogs and wanted to learn more about their behaviour and reward-based training. The Advanced Diploma in Dog Behaviour and Training was a good fit for me. I have learned how to gently train my pet dogs and they are on their best behaviour. I couldn’t have asked for a more effective and practical course.
