Animal Career Academy Student Testimonials

 

The Understanding Animal Behavior class at ACA changed the way I look at dogs, and has made me appreciate them all the much more. Anyone with a  dog in their life will benefit from this class and it is an essential foundation for anyone wanting to enter or advance in a canine-related career. The opportunity to learn from and with the experienced DGF staff in a top-notch facility beats any classroom only program. –Brock, DoGone Fun Client, Student-at-large (Dad to Bruce, a very smart & energetic boston terrier)

As the former owner of a dog walking service and as someone who has taken other courses in dog behavior and training, I am still interested in learning all I can about dogs. So when I was invited to attend ACA’s “Understanding Dog Behavior” class, I jumped at the chance! The class has been a unique pleasure, providing me with a greater sense of understanding and empowerment as I continue to forge a relationship with my own dog. The instructor, Judit Arroyo, took the time to ensure that we understood key concepts and kept the discussions moving. Her homework projects were fun. Even for those who don’t plan on a career in the animal business, I would still recommend the class. You will come away with greater appreciation for all things canine—and for yourself too! –Cynthia, DoGone Fun Client, Student-at-large (Mom to Dolemite, a high energy, chatty German Shepherd mix)

What a great class (Dogs & the Human Bond).  I learned so much about why my dog acts the way he does & how to adapt my response to him.  It has given me greater respect for my own dog and broader understanding of the myriad of canines I run into on the street.  It’s also fantastic preparation if you’re planning to acquire a dog.  Understanding behavior & breeds should be required for every dog owner! This knowledge is fun for the average owner & priceless for someone looking to enter the field or already in a related field of canines.  I wasn’t aware of the real story behind how the canine evolved from the wolf until I took this class. All I can say is Bow Wow! Adrienne Nadler, DoGone Fun Client, Student-at-large (best friend of Joey, mixed breed blessing)
