Course reviews

I have been a bit of a serial canine course student since planning my retirement from teaching. Over the last 3 years I've done done both levels 4 & 5 in canine behaviour as well as various other courses each with well known providers. I chose DoGenius level 6 because, unlike others the content actually looked interesting and useful. I am hugely impressed by the up to date material, tutor support, detailed feedback, Zoom calls and engaging FB discussions. This is a wrap-round package that I didn't experience from any of the other course providers. Highly recommended.
