Behavior Fundamentals made me a better dog owner and when I begin my professional training career, I know it will be an immense help. It taught me to understand how dogs function in the world and gave me immense insight into why dogs do what they do. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to be a trainer or even just wants to be a better dog owner.

Behavior Fundamentals is an amazing gateway into the world of dog ethology. From the first day of class, I was completely hooked on it's thorough and interactive content. I now find myself on the third and final course of FetchFind Academy and continue to love and utilize all the information I have learned from day one.

-Daphne M.

I decided to change my life with the goal of working at something I am passionate about: dogs! Going to general career websites seemed overwhelming, given my narrow job search focus, and checking for postings on dog-related businesses' websites was too time consuming between my coursework and full-time job. Thankfully, I found FetchFind, and now I get to spend every day with dogs in a job that I love, and I couldn’t be happier!
