How long do I have access to this course for?
Forever! We want you to watch at your own pace and revisit as needed. Many sections of this course, especially the tail end of it, are designed to address issues that will likely arise over the next few years. (That said, please don't share your account with other families. It will result in losing access to your account.)
How long does this course take to complete?
Start to finish, this course can be consumed in about 6-7 hours. This doesn't factor in the hands on practical training you will do with your pup.
But don't worry! We split the entire course into smaller lessons so you can watch and learn at your own pace.
What's the format of the course content?
The course is comprised of over 30 video lessons ranging from 4-25 minutes each.
Some sections have additional downloadable pdf resources.
Does this course cover Behavior Modification?
The course is built off the foundation of Positive Reinforcement Behavior Modification principals. There is even a troubleshooting section that covers behavioral issues that we have seen arise when a baby is added to the family.
We already have issues with our Dog & Baby, can this course still help?
Yes! This curriculum for this course was created after countless training sessions with families across the US and Canada who were already having issues with their dog(s) & Baby(ies). What you'll learn in this course is not exclusively proactive approaches.
Will this course ever be updated?
Yes! We intend to constantly update, add to and make improvements on this course. You'll have access to all these changes as they're made - forever!
What are the instructor's qualifications?
