Das Beste: I cherished the format of the course and the exam, furthermore the way that I can print a testament expressing i took this course. The course furnished me with a great deal of information and it was efficient and composed. I learned things about my pets i did not really know some time recently. The course enhanced my abilities in comprehension my pets better, theit outward appearances and non-verbal communication too.
Zu verbessern: Nothing.
