Fenzi Dog Sports Academy?

Has anyone taken courses here? How would you rate your experience?

I'm considering taking the "Dealing with the Boogeyman" course with Chisum in another year or so, because he's not currently with me and it would obviously be more beneficial if I could see/work with him every day. It seems like a different approach to reactivity than we've used previously and could be a good thing to have in our toolbox.

Of course, if anyone has taken that specific class it would be awesome, but I imagine not many have. Even just experiences with the academy itself would be helpful!

It is AMAZNG. Seriously. The variety of courses you get to take with people at the top of their fields is awesome. It is a Godsend for people like me who just don't have access to courses like this. I think I have like 10 classes in my library right now. As long as you take a class once a year, you have access to your library for life. They've also just introduced webinars.

Once you take a course, you can join the Alumni group which is a really supportive and friendly community that all help each other out.

Amy Cook is amazing. I hear nothing but rave reviews about people who have taken her class. In addition in the group I've seen lots of dogs go from not able handle seeing a person to being able to be handled by the judge in the show ring.

If it isn't clear, yes, yes yessssss highly recommend.

Awesome - now I wish I could take it sooner! I have a handful of dog trainers around, many that I've utilized, and they're pretty great but don't really offer this "style" of working with reactivity.

The FDSA classes I've taken have been excellent. I've heard good things about Bogeyman and it's on my "to take" list. In addition to the FDSA Alumni FB group each class has a lurker group that consists primarily of people taking the class at the bronze (maybe silver) level.

If you want a bit of a preview, Amy is doing a webinar tomorrow night: https://fenzidogsportsacademy.com/in...study/webinars

You need to register before it starts and you get access to the content for a year (I believe it works the same way as classes so it's a year from the most recent webinar).

Also, I've heard that Julie Daniel's Empowerment class is good for fear reactive dogs. I'm not sure when it's being offered again.

Thank you!! I've signed up for the webinar and will keep an eye out for the Empowerment class. I'm excited to learn more about Amy's style and maybe play around (no pun intended) until I can sign up for the real deal.

So I attended the webinar. I really enjoyed it and am excited to take the course in the future! I was a bit frustrated with the chat feature - there were some really good questions asked that I was eager to stick around for, but I had to wait through some really silly, and often repeated, questions first. Still worth it though! I'm going to try to work on some play when I go home tonight.

She's awesome, I would love if it helped Chisum even a little bit.
