a wise investment!
I've skimmed through most of the docs and printed a few things. I think this was a wise investment. I'm going to use it to form a private training program first that is just for walking nicely. I think my clients will like the idea of getting their problems solved while learning other skills. I'm loving the possibilities here!

The Love of Dogs!
This course allowed my dog to gain confidence and he is happy doing tricks.
The Master level allowed me to accomplish complex tasks like a solid fetch, a short trick routine, a merged behavior, a match to sample and the Do as I Do protocol with Jack and my training knowledge and skills improved a lot. It was always a challenge, but never to hard that you would fail. I learned to be aware of Jack emotions and capacity as he is a fearful and anxious dog. This course allowed my dog to gain confidence and he is happy doing tricks.

has given me a chance to take my knowledge to another level
The DogNostics Dog Training Master course has given me a chance to take my knowledge to another level... Each webinar is packed full of information covering many subjects with attention to detail, teaching clearly with many interesting science-based facts and added information in our additional learning pack... I can safely say that this is one of the best courses I've done, I felt I could work without pressure, go steady and really make the best of new information. I put to practise and polished my skills over many months, which we needed, both myself and my dog – my training partner throughout have had the best time. Thank you, Louise for teaching this course, it has been an invaluable experience.

Let me begin by saying THANK YOU to the course creator…
... Let me begin by saying THANK YOU to the course creator, Louise Stapleton-Frappell. She put together a course that not only focused on the mechanical skills needed to teach the behaviors, but went above and beyond that, and taught the theory behind the training... Her knowledge and experience truly shine through in every detail, from the slides in the webinars, to the additional homework material, and the wonderful videos... Her mentoring of the students in the course was greatly appreciated. Under her watchful eye, I became a more consistent trainer... I would also like to thank Louise for opening a Facebook group.. a place to go with questions, to post our videos, and to meet some new friends. For those of you still working through the course I wish you all the best. I will be looking forward to watching your upcoming videos. Have fun and happy training!

This has been a lovely way to enrich the relationship I share with my dogs.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Journeyman course and have learnt so much. The information here is second to none and needs careful understanding, so all the extra links and opportunity to watch the webinars time again is invaluable. As an older student it has helped me greatly to watch, read, listen and actually apply what I have learnt in my training and also watch and share progress with the Facebook group. This has been a lovely way to enrich the relationship I share with my dogs. Thank you!

I highly recommend this class to anyone
I have really enjoyed the DogNostics Journeyman Course presented by Louise Stapleton-Frappell. This class goes beyond just showing you how to train a certain trick but divulges into the science behind the force free training. The how and why it works so well; how it opens the door to communicate with the learner, thus, setting them up for success... I highly recommend this class to anyone wanting a stronger and more meaningful relationship with their furry companion. Louise is a wonderful, encouraging person and a very well-informed instructor...

thank you for being the creator of such a WONDERFUL course
...want to thank you for being the creator of such a WONDERFUL course. I had taken two other titling courses and in comparison, now I feel like I just bought the titles. There was no testing and no education as in your course. I feel your course is the GOLD standard by which I will measure all other training courses!! Thanks again for a wonderful job developing the course and all the hours you must invest in keeping the course running."

well-organized and skillfully instructed
The Dognostics DTC Program is a well-organized and skillfully instructed course of study that sets up both dog and human learners for success! The content presented is current, relevant, fun and clearly delivered. Feedback on assignments is consistently returned in a timely fashion. Key concepts are repeated in different ways and reinforced throughout the Modules. Training mechanics are front and centre with easy to follow instructions and demos as well as a mindful discussion of ethics and how we chose to define ourselves as trainers/teachers.

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.

A brilliant course …
... A brilliant course for either beginners or masters! Easy to follow instructions and every behaviour is dissected in a manner that is fun...

Such a wonderful training program.
Such a wonderful training program. I found the presentations concise with great videos to supplement my learning and the reviews in written form are just perfect for me! A great multi-sensory approach. I found going through the whole 5 sessions also increased my understanding more for the beginning sessions (earlier months). Thank you for "splitting" vs "lumping" this material.

... I work with dogs on a regular basis each week and I have enjoyed delivering, in my opinion, a better and more concise training experience for carers and their dogs in reflection of this course. The webinar and information supplied can be watched and read time over where needed, there is a supportive Facebook group for course members bringing together like minded people who help each other and share their knowledge and experiences - brilliant! From a pet dog carer’s perspective, I feel the course can only enrich any dog/human relationship and bring fun to every day, deepening the bond between them. All my dogs are enjoying this!

I would highly recommend this course to anyone…
...Having a month to review the material and perform the required activities is just enough time to be very doable with a busy schedule...The webinars are very informative. Louise is very nice and helpful, and the extra material given to read has been very informative and interesting. Meeting other people and their dogs from around the world has been fascinating... I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in improving their training knowledge and skills, all while having more fun with their dog!

I love it…
...It is like another depth to the training we have already done, and I love it, so thank you for opening my eyes to a new perspective...

They have totally inspired me to delve deeper…
... The instructor, Louise Stapleton-Frappell is always willing to help, or address questions. Through her Supplemental Learning assignments, I have learned so much more about the science and mechanics of training. They have totally inspired me to delve deeper into subjects I thought I knew...

Thank you for all you do
The Apprentice Course is one of the best online courses I have taken... I've learned about the science behind the training... Thank you for all you do.
Diann Andress
Looking forward to the next level…
... The course is well laid out, each module compliments the next module. The support from the team and other students if you're struggling with a particular step, makes it easy to adjust technique and find what works for your pet... I am looking forward to the next level.
Kim, TeeJay and HiJinx
So happy I found them first …
I took the Apprentice training first and signed for Collaborative Care, as well as taking webinars in between... their methods are kind and respectful to the animals as well as the people. Real confidence building... I am over the moon with enthusiasm and although this is an online course for me, I feel they have my back at every turn... So happy that I found them first!
