I took this course over a few months as I was busy (and also procastinating let's be honest) - i like that we can access this platform anytime for a few months and come back to where we left. We also get reminders of our progress so it can give us a little push to actually complete the course. The steps and videos are very simple so we can easily apply it at home and Katherine is available to answer questions too. I like the printable easy steps with each module.

Puppy Life Skills
This course helped us out so much with Bella! We were able to go at our own pace, and really loved having the videos to guide us, but then the printable tools, resources to use for "homework" and progress tracking. Would 100% recommend, especially with the pandemic, we loved being able to do thisall from the comfort of our home!

The Dog Inspired nail course has been a LIFE CHANGER for my dog, Charlie. He is a reactive dog, and since having him as a puppy, has had some traumatic experiences at the groomer’s. Before this course, I couldn’t even touch his paws. Now, his tail wags when I bring out his nail file and he’s even happy when I slip on his boots, which is something that seemed impossible before. Thank you so much!
This course is planned out in a nice, easy way to learn. It gave me some other things to think about when it comes to cooperative care. I look forward to implementing it into our daily lives.

Before taking this course, I didn't think I would ever be able to trim my dog's nails at home. This was a constant source of stress for me, because he doesn't tolerate going to the groomers, and his nails grow very quickly and are difficult to maintain with a scratch board. About a month into the course, we finally started trimming his nails by ourselves. There's still some ways to go, but without a doubt I know we can get more and more comfortable with the process. This course gave me the knowledge and confidence to implement a training plan to help my dog feel safe while getting his nails done.

I'm not sure about online training... Tell me more.Online training means you get access to a qualified trainer, no matter where you live. In my experience, it has also allowed our clients to take on the training and build a solid bond with their dog. Our courses include PDF handouts if you need a checklist to follow or written instructions, as well as step by step tutorial videos. No matter how you learn, we got you covered.
What methods do you use?We use reward based training methods that are humane and science based. In other words, positive reinforcement. We do not recommend the use of force, fear or pain while training animals.
What do I need to take one of your courses?Each course contains downloadable PDF handouts, as well as step by step tutorial videos. All you need is a decent internet connection and a device such as a computer, tablet or smart phone to access your course.
How long can I access this course?Forever! When you purchase one of our courses or webinars, you have life time access to our content!
