What Members are Saying
"This community has been so positive and refreshing to be a part of, especially with how negative dog training circles can get! What a breath of fresh air to be training my dog at our own pace, surrounded by like-minded and supportive people. Our training sessions, and life as a whole, have felt so much more FUN since we joined this community!" - Erin and Tobey
"I wish I had joined sooner. It’s been amazing to connect with Jill for advice/insight and other dog guardians that have similar challenges!" - Valerie
"I love Better Living with Dogs because it helps me to focus on one core skill a month. That helps me feel less overwhelmed because I have a never ending list of various skills that I want to train my dog. I also enjoy the live chats, you get the opportunity to ask questions and also get a perspective on what other dog owners are going through. We have learnt some great tips and skills since joining." - Natasha
