Will I get access to Suzanne?

Yes, through the magic of the internet you can join her on the Discussion board.  Gold Members will get invitations to join bi-monthly Q&A sessions throughout the year.

I'm not a professional trainer but I love learning about dogs. Will this be too advanced for me?

Here’s something we hear a lot: “Oh, I wish I’d known this when I was starting out!” Suzanne’s sensible, kind and practical approach helps even first time owners and beginning trainers build better relationships and deeper understanding. Her teaching style is well known for making complex information easily understood, and her RCT techniques provide a solid foundation for any handler and dog.

I'm an experienced trainer – will my RCT Membership provide me with new ideas or techniques?

Despite long experience or multiple certifications, many trainers feel like something is still missing. Suzanne’s pioneering work provides paradigm shifts and radical frameworks for understanding the dog/human relationship with her unique blend of science and heart. Most often heard from long time pros when they encounter RCT: “This is what I was looking for – this is the missing piece.”

Will new material be added?

One thing you can count on is that Suzanne and her colleagues are always creating new material, so new courses, materials and events will continue to be added to what’s available. And we’ve been listening to what you have told us you want from Suzanne and others – our to-do list is a big one!
