Definitely worth it!

I was intitialy skeptical about doing this course, but WOW! I have learned so much from Jane's easy and concise delivery in all the video presentations. I loved all the homework reviews and can't wait to start these protocols with my new puppy. Thank you, Jane!

Ok course! Would be a better course if we weren’t breeders!

This is a course for breeders. I don’t feel it is a course for someone getting the same dog for the 3rd time.

Want to learn how to talk to your dog?

Take this course. It will upend everything you have ever been taught and thought was the “right way” to train a dog. This method of training is so good - I bet it would work on children through age 11. Thank you Jane for making this easy.

The course was so helpful for my husband and i. We learned so much that we can apply daily. Jane presents things clearly and interestingly. We definitely recommend this course.
