What Our Clients Have To Say
Megan, NDTF Student
Claude's workshop on dog aggression was above and beyond what I was expecting. His wealth of knowledge and experience in understanding dog behaviour was obvious, as was his passion working with both dogs and people.
Claude is an inspiring and engaging teacher, he challenged my thinking and I went home with a different perspective on many aspects of dog training.
Speaking with classmates afterwards I found that I wasn't the only one going home with brain strain from learning so much that day!
Lisa, NDTF Student
Through my studies with the NDTF,
I recently attended a lecture presented by Claude Bertoni on fear and
aggression. WOW what an amazing day! It was so
refreshing to listen to and watch another animal lover present such a crucial
topic in such an empathetic and heart felt manner.
It is obvious that Claude is passionate
about animal welfare and what he teaches is truly aimed at educating people and
helping dogs overcome their obstacles to develop better partnerships, patterns,
skills and coping mechanisms.
Unfortunately we have become a
throw away society. Therefore it is very
easy, in this day and age, for a dog with any kind of “issue” to be cast off or
discarded, thus joining the many billions as a statistic.
I am so thrilled to find someone
who thrives on sharing his knowledge so selflessly. I’m sure if the facility that the lecture was
held at didn’t have to close, Claude would have kept teaching until the last
student could take no more.
Can’t wait for the next
opportunity to learn from you Claude!!
I attended your seminar in Geelong.
All I can say is thank you and what a day. A lot of information and a lot to take in. I realise now that I have been making some very basic errors and its about time to change my approach.
Your suggestion to keep an open mind while listening to many opinions is refreshing given that every person I have spoken with until now has ridiculed anything others before them has said.
Thanks again for your open and frank approach to teaching.
