As a newly-certified dog trainer, I am obsessed with learning new things. Steffi and SpiritDog are an absolute treasure! The positive reinforcement approach is ALWAYS the way to go, and Steffi explains WHY her methods work so well in a way that actually makes sense! I learned a lot of this in school, but the way information is presented in this course makes it more applicable to daily life and super easy to follow! I can’t count how many times I exclaimed, “oh, wow!” out loud during the Reactivity course, and I’m so excited to keep learning!!

Steffi is a wonderful trainer. She is so sweet and captivating to watch with her dogs. Her videos are professional and she teaches each new trick or command in a step-by-step fashion that makes them easy to follow. I have taken two of her courses now and am hoping to take another in the near future. Thank you so much!
