I am relatively new to positive reinforcement training and have not really been in a “ learning “ environment for several decades so when I saw this course advertised on social media I was very interested but also worried I wouldn’t be able to keep up or it would be too much for me. I made contact with the lovely Trudi Dempsey who put me at ease and encouraged me to sign up, I’m so very glad I did. I absolutely loved the course, so much information, feedback and a wonderfully supportive community to share the journey with. This course has given me the confidence I needed to progress with my training and I hope Trudi will be doing another course.
