Sandy Wei, Wei with Tails

"I’m so glad I took the Dog Walker Course & Certification course with Bravo Dog. All the topics covered were explored in great detail and a lot of additional useful resources were provided. I would recommend anyone thinking of, or already providing dog-walking services, to take the course and become more educated on how to safely care for the pups and how to better help the clients we work with!"

Jacqueline Wu, Pupworld Services

"I just started my dog walking business and felt unprepared for some of the issues I was encountering. I wasn't working with the right clients, I didn't feel confident identifying issues before they got out of control and in general was feeling overwhelmed. This program really gave me the information and tools I need to move forward in a more successful way."
