The Canine Behavior Mentorship was amazing! I learned so much about behavior & the emotions behind it. Being fairly new to the dog training community, it was so helpful to learn how to do assessments, how to ask the right questions, and how to build a complete training plan. Mattison is extremely knowledgeable about all things behavior, and she’s so good at explaining things in a way everyone can understand! I am so incredibly thankful that I had the opportunity to learn from her!!

I am really grateful to have been part of the inaugural Freed by Training Behavioral Mentorship program. Throughout the program we were presented with client scenarios and tasked with creating plans to work with the clients dogs. An outcome of the program are viable forms  that can be utilized for the client intake and a template for a comprehensive behavioral plan.My own dog, Emma is “my why” I started to learn how to become a dog trainer and Mattison has gone above and beyond to continue to assist and hone in my training skills. We just had a major breakthrough with a trigger as a direct result of this program.
