Tiffany Ward, ZA

It's a great course I enjoyed it but there could be more information on analyzing the dogs body language for nervousness and aggression I did look up that information online because I felt like it needed more because in all actuality there is a lot to a dog's body language and many different ways to miss read it. But it was a very knowledgeable course I took loads of notes for my own use and it helps me keep the information fresh in mind. And I did the test so many times I can ace it with my eyes closed now! Thank u can't wait for my next course!!!!

Easy to follow course

Lydia Pixton, US

was very informative. Only module pertaining to law was interesting but does not apply to RSA. But thank you as i have learnt a lot and can apply it to the animal welfare society where i volunteer at.

Kathy Scholes, ZA

The course is well designed and easy to understand. The tests are more challenging than at first glance. You really have to know your work to be able to answer multiple choice questions. Overall, a good course to study.

Uwais Rawoot, ZA

This course was beneficial to our Kennels. We have a better understanding of our dogs health and don't feel the need to visit the vet for the smaller things that we can deal with our-self without any stress. Thanks
