What students are saying
" I left yesterday feeling really sad that it was over, and have decided I want to continue on with more education. I look forward to the next go-round!"
"The Dog Walking Certification course is
a mush-have for anyone considering starting a dog walking business. Amber thoroughly tells you how to start the business, the do's and don'ts, proper equipment to use to handle dogs well, ensure safety for dogs and humans, how to handle reactive dogs, theory and practical. I now have a better understanding of a reactive dog and how to deal with it, and have been able to put it in practice in the practical part of the course. Thank you Amber. I learned so much."
"Really enjoyed the course. Very thorough and lots of information not only about dog walking but valuable material on how to start up and run the business as well.
