” This was a great course, I loved the practical parts and learning all the different aspects of dog walking” Katie

” Thoroughly enjoyed this course. Informative and very detailed but taught in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere with an excellent and encouraging tutor. Highly recommended, an essential qualification for any professional dog walkers/carers. Thank you Absolutely Animals” Karina

“Just wanted to say this was absolutely brilliant for a newbie to dog walking as well as someone like myself that has been doing this over 10 years! Very educational! I learnt things I never even thought about. Great to be brought up to date with new laws and regulations! Will help you to make your business even more successful. Tutors are fantastic, happy, fun and patient! Money well spent! Looking forward to my next course! Thank you absolutely animals for helping me feel comfortable (I have dyslexia and can feel out of place in a classroom like an environment and in role play) not once did I feel embarrassed or out of place!”  Samantha
