Testimonials From Our Students

Your guidance & tutoring throughout, was a terrific learning curve and I have come away with a more professional outlook on training. The course provided me with much more knowledge and authority in dealing with problems, people skills, teaching & learning principles and observation.

Claude Tonna Secretary - Wiltja Obedience Dog Club

I found the course easy to follow & learn from. I think it would help anybody to understand about dog training and to gain self-confidence in Instructing. Your 4 week program greatly benefited our club’s instructors.

Stan Buck President - Wiltja Dog Obedience Club

Sing Lam Yancy Basil, thank you so much for your patience and support. The best thing is the range it covers, from theories to practical training to styles of teaching by different instructors. With so many chances of observing and handling different types of dogs it certainly helped a lot.
