“Leerburg has a good course here. I have only been training dogs on my own now for 3 years, and this course is very informative. I hope Leerburg continues with this online course training. I take classes as my work schedule permits, and taking this in the evenings after work was perfect.”

- Tim, on Basic Dog Obedience

“Forrest has a real eye for breaking down what he sees on the video assignments and giving clear suggestions on how to move forward. Even as a trainer with some experience I found his beginner Heeler's Toolbox class very helpful in fixing some of the holes in my training.”

- Jane, on The Heeler's Toolbox / Beginner
