dr. hare in 38 reviews

Dr. Hare did a good job of explaining everything he taught every week.

Dr. Hare is an engaging teacher and the course content is a wonderful adjunct to the typical dog training literature.

The thing I like most was the vocation of Dr. Hare to explain the wonderful world of dogs Really useful information to understand your dogs behavior.

Dr. Hare's research and influence will make a huge impact on the dog training community and on the overall welfare of dogs in decades and centuries to come.

Thank you Dr. Hare for having this available to educate the people about the amazing potential of their pets!

I like in particular how because Dr. Hare has included other animals in his field of study, that these comparisons are brought into lectures.

Dr. Hare is an awesome speaker!

best friend in 11 reviews

I learned so much about the questions we all have about why dogs are the way they are regarding man's best friend.

Thanks to Dr Hare, I know have a much better understanding of my best friend and myself FANTASTIC.

This course gives scientific insight on how dogs have become human's best friend and it leads to better understanding toward as well as relationship with dogs.

If you want to learn better your best friend, here you are.

This class gives me the option to learn about my best friend (my dog) and how to apply my learned skills to better his life.

This is a relatively easy course to complete, but I definitely enjoyed learning about dog cognition and how they have evolved over time to become man's best friend.

You'll understand your best friend better and your own evolution.

genius of dogs in 10 reviews

I'm so impressed with the learning style, mixing the book (The Genius of Dogs) with the online course made understanding and retaining the information so much easier.

Lots of low star reviews complaining about "marketing" too much of Dognition and Genius of Dogs, but I must say when taking the course and using both of them as extra materials, I gained lots of new insight.

A superb course (and the accompanying book, The Genius of Dogs, and citizen science website, Dognition, are wonderful too).

I learned a lot and I really recommend both the course and the book (The Genius of Dogs)!

I loved this course, I read the Genius of Dogs and when I saw who the instructor was, I had to take it.

I may have gotten more out of this course if I hadn't already read "The Genius of Dogs".

Worth reading the book "Genius of Dogs".
