We are not 100% sure yet, but hoping it will open again in about 4-6 months.
Everyone learns at their own pace, but we recommend you set aside between 3-5 hours per week to complete the course, and there is the opportunity to increase your knowledge base through additional study if you wish to.
Some of you will be ready to work with clients after 4 months of the course. There is no pressure to do so and many of you will wish to wait until you have completed the 12 month program.
Yes, absolutely. It is very likely that you would dovetail this in with your current or other job or work until you are ready to scale it up.
Yes, Dan will be active on the private Facebook community page, monitoring the activity and helping to answer any questions which need his input.
The money-back guarantee is for 60 days, and to action it, all you need to do is tell Doggy Dan or the support team that you wish to cancel by emailing us at [email protected]
Every couple of weeks we run a webinar, which either goes into a specific dog training or business topic or answers a more detailed range of questions that have come up.
No. Although I am sure it will bring it all to life for you and make it a lot more fun!
The simple answer...every learning style. This course information is accessible through video, audio, and detailed course notes/lectures. It doesn’t matter if you’re a visual, audio, or tactile learner. We have something for everyone! Bonus...because we have some many different ways to access the course info, you can take it with you wherever you go by plane, train, automobile or in the comfort of your own home.
Students who are Early Birds on the course will be the first to get 1-on-1 time with Dan as mentioned in the bonus section. People who join after this will get 1-on-1 time with Dan once the Early Birds have been given the chance to book a time. Everybody will also have access to Dan through the closed Facebook group, the Q & A sessions and regular webinars.
At the end of the completed course you will graduate with a certificate in “Owner Education and Dog Communication” from Doggy Dan’s Dog Trainer Academy.
Throughout the 12 month course there will be a number of online tests, and reports that will need to be submitted and passed in order to gain the certification.
The main thing that you will need to complete the course is a device for watching videos such as a computer, laptop or tablet, some headphones, a printer and a mobile phone.
Yes. Students will be able to upload video clips into the Facebook Community where feedback and assistance can be provided from Doggy Dan and the other students.
