Sarah Whithead's courses - opinions ?

Post by Daytona » Fri Jul 31, 2015 5:22 am

I've got the opportunity to take a couple of her courses at half price and and wondered what people thought of her and if there are any red flags. I don't know much about her, but the offer seems tempting. I've read several behavioural books but really need to see body language in real time which is the advantage of the courses with their video bank and lifetime access.

I've read her book Clever Dog: Understand What Your Dog is Telling You and absolutely loved it. It's very positive and is all about understanding what is going on in the dog's head. If you search the forum for 'Whitehead' you'll find a couple of people recommending her courses. So I'd definitely say she's one of the good guys :D

Recently I watched a webinar of hers that seemed good. :)

Thanks for your replies, I've signed up after sounding out one of the behaviourists at the rescue centre I volunteer at who had personal experience of her and who confirmed posters views.

What courses are you doing. I did two Think Dog courses and watched her free seminar about dog body language.
She used to be part of COAPE.
