As a course mentor (and someone who has made a career of teaching and training people and dogs for over 40 years), I have gotten a tremendous amount out of participating in this phenomenal course. It has supported, clarified and reminded me about things I know, but even more importantly, has provided new insights and new information from an outstanding group of professionals on the cutting edge of animal (and people) learning. As someone who has been in the field of animal training and behavior consulting for years, I can attest to the fact that this course is the best thing to happen to our profession – bar none!”
