“After attending a seminar by Professor Abrantes, I took my first free course (Evolution). I liked it so much that I enrolled in the next course—and then I couldn’t stop. I finished my CPDT, CACE and finally earned my CAAE diploma of which I’m very proud. Today, I have a good business helping dogs and their owners to a better life. That was my dream!
