What Students Are Saying About The Pets and Animals
Home Study Course

“There were great, thought provoking questions. This course gave me a new dynamic in seeing dogs and their owners. I especially enjoyed working with multiple animals/personalities. I’ve also made believers out of some die-hard skeptics My mother, for one, is now telling all of her dog friends about what I did to help her with flower essences.” –Leanne Pusateri, Spokane, WA

“This course has been the most interesting and enjoyable study I have ever done. It has helped me understand myself and my animals more. I was half-expecting multiple choice questions with boxes to tick (as in most exams in the U.K.), but this is much better. I have listened to the CD lecture over and over. For an overseas student, it is nice to put a voice to a name and it was easy and informative to listen to. All of the enclosed material was interesting. I found the comments on my essays very helpful. I was so impressed with Flower Essences for Animals that I decide the Spirit-in-Nature course was the one for me. I would certainly recommend this course. It has not been ‘just pay a fee and gain a piece of paper’; there has been a lot of study and work involved and I have gained a lot of knowledge and satisfaction from it.” –Jane Cook, Suffolk, England

“Thank you so much for the compliments and praise of my paper; it meant a tremendous amount to me. I also really appreciated your comments on all the various parts; that was very interesting and informative. I received my certificate yesterday-it is beautiful! I can’t wait to get it framed as well.” –Haley Howard, Alturas, CA

“Of course I really loved to recommend this course to friends and people who work with animals. Because I believe that, the course can contribute a big help for the animals for whom they work and especially for the people who work with animals. As of now I am already introducing this course to my friends.” –Megumi Sakaino, Osaka, Japan

“I felt that this course has given me a deeper understanding of both my animal and human friends. It has helped me grow in understanding the complexities in both myself and those around me and, perhaps most importantly, given me a tool to help those that I love and anyone whose pathway crosses mine. I am thankful I’ve had this wonderful learning experience. I would highly recommend this course to everyone who loves or works with animals.” – Deb Barber, B.C., Canada

“This course is an exciting adventure! My vet has already had me help him with 20 cases and is very pleased with the results.”

– Katherine Keller, Portland, OR
