Love the personal touch of tips and web chats. Makes you feel that you're passionate not just trying to make money. Which is very refreshing and inviting. Jenni Gray - United Kingdom

I now have a better understanding of animals' behavior and how to manage it. I am hoping that this accreditation will help me get a position taking care of animals. It was very informative and easy to navigate. Also, you are very attentive to alert us and check in with us when there is a delay or an issue with the courses. I don't know any of you, but your emails have made me feel like you are friends. What an awesome educational experience! Debbie Taylor - United States

The format is very good - if I cannot complete the course, it brings me back to where I left off previously. The information is very thorough and I have been able to put some of it into practice already. I enjoyed developing further knowledge of how to interact with animals and learning what to do if they are in distress has been very helpful in my work with local rescues. I liked the self-paced aspect the most and I was able to complete it when I had time to commit to the lessons. Natasha Orslene - United States

The courses gave me a good understanding of why certain animals behave how they do which is very useful since I help run an animal shelter I liked the length that I had to complete the courses and the available options to do so with my busy schedule. I've recommended Holly and Hugo courses to many friends. Jennifer Kanzenbach - United States

I got to learn more about animals psychology, and it gave me more confidence in the knowledge I already had. I liked the neat layout and the well-written lessons. Farrah Porter - United States

Animal Psychology has been something I’ve wanted to study and learn about so given the opportunity to do it at home when I like was fabulous! Holly and Hugo also a lot of support and had clear instructions as well. Annese Wolff - New Zealand
