I am getting a puppy very soon and was so grateful to Jake and Jenny for this wonderful course! I learned so much information that was easy to watch, it kept me engaged and wasn’t overwhelming. I’m so ecstatic to try all of the new training lessons learned through this course! I would absolutely recommend this course to everyone with a new puppy, middle aged and older! You can always teach a dog new tricks ;)

Welcome Home was the perfect lead way into bringing home our new puppy. We had forgotten so much over the years that this content was very helpful. The material is full of good information, well laid out and instructed superbly by a top notch team. You will not be disappointed and having the ability to go back to review content is invaluable. Thanks Jake, Jenny & Luda!

I can't say enough great things about these trainings. They are very helpful and informative. You can use their suggestions on any dog no matter what breed or age they are. With the online trainings you are able to go back 12 mo to readdress the trainings to refresh yourself if you missed or forgot something, and if you need a little extra help you can always email them or use the course community to ask for help or suggestions.. **Remember to be proactive in your trainings so you don't have to be reactive AND Everyday there is an opportunity for training or what I call "manners" with your dog.
