I started taking a intro to dog training class on New Skills Academy. It’s a website to take courses and you get certificates. I saw an add on Facebook talking about the intro to dog training course and it was only $25! So I took my chance because all those other dog training courses are thousands of dollars. (you are not required to be certified).￼ Taking a course for me makes me feel more productive than just reading a book because you can interpret books anyway and I like the idea of taking tests and quizzes because it shows me what I’ve learned.￼
The website is accessible, (for the most part), I was able to read all the articles for my classes and take notes. The one thing I had trouble with was finding the text box to take notes and the fact that sometimes it randomly go to the notes and start reading them to me.￼￼￼ I was able to answer the quizzes and the test at the end. I wasn’t however able to fill out the worksheets because they were not accessible at all! (Thankfully the worksheets were not required).
Taking the class makes me realize I knew lots more about dog training than I thought. It makes me feel more confident in my dog training ability and has taught me some new things. I got a certificate for completing the course I’m going to frame it and put it on my wall! ￼￼￼￼￼￼

It’s all about the little things that make me happy! Some cuddles with three of my babies and my certificate for an intro to dog training class! I’m extremely happy and you can see the review of my experience on my blog! Image description: First there is a picture of the certificate and then the second is a video showing a black and white husky, a Black and Tan Chihuahua/York’y mix, and a gray cat! #IntroToDogTraining #DogTrainerInProgress #DogTraining&Blind #viblindcandoanything
(Also I’m sorry if this post sounds a bit weird because I had to use the Tatian to write it, since my orbit reader 20 ￼didn’t charge!￼).
