Custom Course Development

Our team is committed to the success of your company and organization.

We have always used Julie Ott and Canine Foundations to teach all of our new employees Canine First Aid.  We trust Julie’s knowledge and experience and the way she teaches and shows by example in this course is wonderful.  The course content is extremely valuable in our pet care business.  We will continue to send our employees to Julie and have referred her to many of our clients for this course and for behaviour training.
