      WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT This training

      The opportunity to exchange ideas and workshop different handling methods with other Compliance Officers was great and will help me with new techniques and boost my confidence.

      My team and I really enjoyed today’s workshop and have come away with so much more information about reading a dog’s body language in a way that will help us avoid stress for the animals and keep us safe.

      After today’s workshop I have a new appreciation for how many dogs in our community are suffering from a mental health condition. I feel so much more confident to be able to have these conversations with my team and animal owners in our community.
