Comments from those who took the Working Dog Handler On-line course:

"Very well done. Questions were set up properly to increase understanding. I have a background with a police trauma team and was surprised, but pleased to see information on this in the course. Even though I have done extensive research, I found this course very informative. I have a teaching background and was a police officer for 30 years.... Thank you for this opportunity." K. M., Ontario, Canada

"I wish I had this course to take and refer back to when I first started working in SAR..." P.H., Maine.
