Course reviews

"I am undertaking the Professional Dog Trainer course with DoGenius. I have focussed on dog behaviour for the last couple of years and had not really thought I wanted to take dog training lessons until I discovered this course. The content of the modules, and the feedback from my tutor is amazing.  I have learnt so much already, the course is making me really open my mind and I want to do more and more research - its addictive!
It is well written and at a level that makes it enjoyable, but not easy! Highly recommended".

"Enrolling in the professional dog trainer course at the Dogenius Institute not only equipped me with practical skills and knowledge to understand and work with dogs and their people, but also made studying highly motivational.
The instructor was extremely supportive throughout, and helpful when it came to obtaining useful resources for the course. I can highly recommend this course for anyone who is interested in dog training and behavior modification that utilizes science based, force-free methods"
