A useful overview of using the website. I’m mostly familiar with the interface from other offerings I’ve accessed, and your specific content is reasonably intuitive. So initially I skipped it. But glad I now took the time, as the later lessons did help me with my mental organization of material.

This is a very well put together, clearly explained, and very thoughtful guide about "what and where" to find on this website. I feel like you read questions in my mind pertaining to training and living with reactive dog. Thank you, happy to find such place.

I am beyond impressed! I asked which 'course' to take first, for B.A.T. and this was the recommendation. This 'intro' is comprehensive and informative, well-organized and answers the over-whelming question, of 'where do I start?'! WOW - everything is laid out for your particular interests...and the order of recommended study is like a university curriculum laid out in front of me! AWESOME JOB, Grisha and team! THANK YOU! Can't wait to add this 'academy' to my continued learning. WOW!

Informative and easy.

The guides were informative, they answered questions I had, and even some I didn't think to ask about! Super easy to follow along as well.

I found the Diamond Membership Orientation very informative especially due to the fact that there are specific classes I wanted to take due to a situation in my own home. Additionally, I even learned a few things I didn’t know just in the orientation and that was a great feeling for what was to come. I’ve been a dog owner for many years and thought I knew a lot about dogs until now! I’m definitely hungry for knowledge! Thank you

To be honest, I just dove into the courses, searching for keywords and got fascinated by the amount of matches and the high quality of the courses. To recommend it to others, I thought let's have a look into the orientation course to get the best out of it and now I'm even more stoked about all the features. It's a brilliant overview and as perfectly structured as the whole academy. ;)
