Very good course and particularly enjoyed the question and answer session afterwards. I have had some of these scenarios crop up and was intersting to hear how they would be approached
This was a most useful Webinar, thank you. Maintaining owner follow-through is a challenge and one of the biggest obstacles to overcome when trying to create long term change in the dogs' behaviour.
A really interesting talk, thank you
