Course reviews

I enrolled on the Advanced Level 5 Canine Behaviour Practitioner course early this year with TheDoGenius. I can honestly say I've learned so much since starting this course. It's pushed me beyond what I thought I was capable of. The tutors are absolutely amazing and go above and beyond to assist your learning. As a bonus, there's a community of like minded professionals all supporting each other on a daily basis. If you're looking for a comprehensive course with excellent support, then I highly recommend TheDoGenius.
