What students have to say about Holly and Hugo

  • Going through the course at your own pace was very comforting. I got to take all the time that I needed to study and learn while also practicing my newly-learned techniques on my own dog.

  • I liked that every time I had a question or needed help- my question was answered relatively fast by a friendly knowledgeable person.
