Canine Enrichment Program
WOW, the CET program is fabulous. Not only did I learn all the necessary skills to build fabulous enrichment programs for my clients but the Assessment Pack that came with the program is fabulous. I was able to implement this as a new service within days of getting my certification Well worth the money and i have my investment back already after just one client!

I’m looking forward to the next course I will participate in!
...Tied into the webinars, we were introduced to relevant theory which blew my beginner's mind and expanded my knowledge to a new level. I am more conscious now about WHEN, WHERE, WHY and thinking about appropriate behaviors which fulfil the need/s of each dog (working in a shelter)... Thank you, Louise for this extraordinary course, your support and the extra miles you went to for me and for all of us. This is only the beginning for me with DogNostics and I'm looking forward to the next course I will participate in.

Walk This Way Instructor Program
I had my first 'outdoor' Walk This Way' workshop and thought you might like to see a comment.  Your system is absolutely a dream.  The workshop was a blast and more comments (requested) to come.  Thanks you to you and DogNostics for giving me this joy so late in life. Here is a participant's comment of the day one workshop. If you are thinking about taking one of Cheryl King's "Loose Leash Walking" sessions I highly recommend it! My dog and I attended a seminar, facilitated by Cheryl, that had a beautiful venue, was well thought out and planned. Cheryl provided a safe space and guidance to help me become a better handler and leader for my dog. We practiced a variety of training goals, focussing on loose leash walking, with fun games throughout the day in which my dog became more focussed on me while at the same time as reinforcing a strong bond between us. Cheryl is able to adapt to each individual dog and handler as she recognizes that each pair is different than the others and clearly communicates how to train specific behaviors with positive reinforcement. I really enjoyed my experience, as did my dog, and will attend another session in future if she hosts one! I just wanted to share just one of many experiences I have had with your guidance.
