What I really liked about Tarheel is that they exposed the students to all kinds of fields relating to dog training. I went in wanting to learn about pet obedience and ended up loving the working dog training! I appreciate Tarheel for providing students the opportunity to work with client and working dogs right from the beginning, allowing us to gain the valuable firsthand experience. The course description mentions that students will have practical experience on at least 20 dogs. I and my fellow classmates quickly surpassed that number and we just stopped counting. Although my course at Tarheel is over, I built network with fellow dog trainers and dog lovers that I will continue to treasure. The fact that I am able to train working dogs has boosted my confidence in training pet dogs.
