Helping Dogs Lead Fulfilled and Enriched Lives

Full Program Description

What The First Certified Canine Enrichment Technician Says About The Program

I have been interested in Enrichment since the first day I volunteered at a local shelter. I started working with the staff Animal Enrichment Specialist then devoted all my visits to the shelter doing enrichment activities with the dogs on campus. I noticed how important enrichment was to their overall emotional and mental wellbeing and I was hooked! I learned as much as I could, reading and taking classes, started an enrichment supply area in my home which now spans 3 rooms, and I began pursuing my dream of working with dogs. When I saw Dognostics Canine Enrichment Technician Program I knew it was for me! I have always implemented enrichment into the dogs session whom I visited but now with this new education and experience I can customize programs and help pet parents implement them too. The Canine Enrichment Program does not disappoint. It is well organized, teaches more than you can imagine, and explains the concepts in an approachable way. When I had questions arise I would email my instructors and heard back quickly with helpful responses. They are there to help you. I am so proud to have completed this program and to be the first Dognostics Canine Enrichment Technician and I'm already looking at more courses to enroll in! Thank you for this program! - Lisa Bartel
