Not sure which program is right for your business?
Get The Library if you like doing your own research on your own time and don’t have more than 1-2 employees. This will give you tools and resources to help your team but is single user access and not set up as a step-by-step training program.

Knowing Dogs provides your team with comprehensive training on dog language (101) and group play (201) and helps them better communicate with the animals in your facility’s care (and each other!).
