    An Invaluable Resource for ALL Trainers Pet Care Providers!

    CEUs - PPAB 3, CPDT 3, KPA 3, IAABC 2

    As pet professionals, we all know how important it is that a dog reliably responds to his name. And if you ask pet dog guardians, they will tell you that they want their dog to come when called... Yet most dogs are simply given a name and expected to respond to it.

    Name response is such an important skill and can be so much fun to train! At DogNostics' we wish to provide you with the tools that will not only make a difference to your life as a pet professional - both improving your skills and increasing your income - but will also positively impact on the pets you work with and their guardians. Real changes for a real-world!
