The program is online but also interactive. Each lesson includes video presentations, reading materials and an “open book” quiz. Lessons also include discussion areas and you are encouraged to email the course instructor, Veronica, with your questions.
There are four required projects. Three are short (one page) essays. The fourth involves training a dog two service dog skills: a retrieve with a controlled 3-5 second hold and task you choose from a list. You will need to submit short videos of your training. Rubrics with specific requirements for each project are provided so you know exactly what you need to do.
