Read MoreHaving found the CDTI Certification Course to be well designed, substantive, and effective, I expected nothing less from this course, and I wasn't disappointed. I didn't expect the course to be as much fun as it is. The videos perfectly align with the Stunt Dog Rule Book, which you can download so you can get to work on the course right away. The videos give you a great sense of what you'd do as a contestant and what you'd evaluate as a judge, and the whole thing is delivered with such warmth and good humor, you can't help but have a great time learning. I loved it, and I'm ready to judge!

Read MoreEven as an already certified Stunt Dog Judge with actual ring experience judging, I found this course with its videos and explanations very informative, and it helped clarify many of the rules. Being able to complete it at my own pace is a big plus. The quizes are well constructed and help solidify the information in my head. It was well scripted and presented. I would recommend this course for those who want to become SD Judges, and for current Judges who want a refresher.
