The training is a series of short slides which meant we could watch in short bursts, and the content was really easy to understand with the use of lots of good examples. We also learnt a lot about the root of dog behaviours which will really inform us on how best to care for our puppy when we bring him home. Thanks to these modules we are more confident that we will be able to to create positive situations in a force-free way which will make our dog happy and less likely to do behaviours we don't like (e.g jumping up, biting etc).
