Recently we were super lucky to have the fantastic Chirag Patel join us live within the Animal Training Academy membership to answer all of our member’s questions!

Registration for full membership is unfortunately currently closed, however you can be the first to know when we re-open our doors [during our limited enrolment periods] by joining the waitlist >>> HERE
We look forward to seeing you on the inside!
