Recent Review:

Amy T. says: "Great course, I've been wanting to start a dog walking business but I didn't know how to go about it, like how do I find customers, do I need to do anything legally, etc.  All that and more was covered in the course.  Really happy with it!"

How do you estimate how much you'll make? What are your expenses? Do you need a business bank account? How do you find clients? How much will marketing cost?  And more! 

Don't worry! I'm here to help you! By the end of this course you will have answers to all your questions, and if you don't you can email me and I'll answer them for you!

My goal with this course is to make sure you feel 100% confident and ready to start your business.  In the course we'll be covering the topics below:

What We Cover In The Course:  

  • Picking a name for your business

  • Do you need a business license?

  • Should you get a business bank account?

  • Who is your target market?

  • How do you market your business? Should you spend money on it?

  • How much should you charge?

  • How will your customers pay you?

  • What schedule will you keep?

  • And much more!

At any point if you have a question, please feel free to ask through the course forum, I'd be happy to answer any and all questions.

Reptile Series: A Guide to Choosing Your First Snake

Learn about important things to consider when buying your first snake, good choices, & how to recognise a healthy snake.

Created by Steve Crawford - Reptile keeper & breeder; Podcast co-host


Students: 162, Price: Free

Students: 162, Price:  Free

Maybe you’re considering getting your first pet snake, or maybe you have already made the decision to get a pet snake. This course is one in a series of courses. The focus of this course is to help you decide which type of snake would be best suited to your personal circumstances and motivation, and to help you avoid making a choice you later regret! (This particular course is not about how to care for your snake).

Make an Informed Decision about the Best Pet Snake for you

If you are new to keeping reptiles you may have a number of questions buzzing round your head that include:

· What type of snake should I buy?

· Where should I buy it from?

· How do I know if I'm buying a healthy snake?

At the end of this course you will be able to answer these questions and more.

Learn to Differentiate Between Snakes and Find a Healthy Specimen

There are many different species of snakes, as well as subspecies and morphs within species, so I will give you a basic understanding of different types of snakes. I will also give you my recommendations for first time snake ownership.

Did you know, or ever wonder why so many giant snakes get handed into animal rescue facilities? It is common place for people to buy a pet snake only to find themselves with a giant snake on their hands a few years later that they don’t have the space for!

Sure you could spend time watching YouTube videos, and there are some great keepers giving great advice on YouTube, but there are also bad ones and why waste your time sifting through the bad to get to the good! And what if you can’t tell if someone is giving you good or bad advice, after all you can’t judge every book by its cover right!?

This course has been put together to put you on the right track by giving you what you need to know in one place.

Contents and Overview

During the course I will show you video footage and images to demonstrate some of the information I am giving you. This course contains 17 lectures and about 35 minutes of video content.

I have added a practical exercise, multiple choice quiz, and a printable checklist to help you.

At the beginning of this course I start by introducing you to the different families of snakes.

I will ask you to reflect on your motivation for wanting a pet snake and make recommendations to you.

We will also address the following questions:

· How much room will I need to give it?

· Should I get a baby snake or an adult for my first pet snake?

· Should I get a male or female?

· If I see a snake for sale that I want, how will I know if it is healthy?

· What sort of questions should I ask the seller before I buy?

· Do I need a permit to keep snakes where I live?

If you are new to the reptile hobby then this course will give you some confidence about the right questions to ask a seller and basic, sound knowledge before you head out to buy.

Holistic Pet Bird Care

Forget what you think you know about captive birds in your home

Created by Mitch Rezman - It's never the bird's fault and always the human's.


Students: 91, Price: $19.99

Students: 91, Price:  Paid

We rarely start at the beginning, except of course in fairytales and murder mysteries.

Without looking back to the beginning of hook bills it's important to realize that as humans you must try overcome 99 years of instinctual expectations.

The first pet parakeet was given to Alexander the great in the mid 15th century, now known the Alexandrine parakeet

After 600 years of captive bird care, we haven't out figured - the birds are still angry.

We disrupt their light cycles

We offer pellets although there is no history of pellet trees in the rain forest

We place their bird cage in front of big picture windows thinking they're happy while in fact they're terrified of the hawk they just saw not understanding the concept of glass.

Birdcage housing is an environmental decision not to be chosen from a list of recommended specifications.

Accessorizing a birdcage can be as complicated as learning about the 600+ hook bills that we are compelled to take them out of the sky.

I will always ask someone  seeking a bird (we do not sell them) what their feelings are about vacuuming?

If you don't like to vacuum, don't get a bird!

These lectures offer holistic, real-time solutions that will require an effort on your part.

This course is just a roadmap.



Dog Care Guide to train an happy pet

your video handbook to raise and train an happy and educated dog

Created by Fedra Dirani - Certified Dog Trainer and Veterinary student


Students: 70, Price: $34.99

Students: 70, Price:  Paid

It happens sometimes that the initial enthusiasm for taking a puppy in the house with you, it's soon replaced by the fear of not succeeding, not to be suitable for this task so daunting. 

Maybe because you are full of doubts, maybe because it's your first dog.. but the questions in your head are many and the answers are few...

So the idea of this Dog Care Guide.

My purpose was to create a manual for the owner that could have been useful during the entire life of his dog. 

I’ve collected many of the questions that the owners ask me every day and made a video for each of them, giving pratical solutions to problems.

This course will offer simple solutions for the most common dog behavior and training problems, : 

- housesoiling

- destructive chewing

- excessive barking and home-alone problems (and separation anxiety),

- leash problems 

- not coming when called

- aggression

In this course, you will find, in addition to all the behavioral notions about the puppy, building a good relationship, also a very important part on dog behavioral problems and obedience. 

We will guide you into the world seen by a dog, helping you understand how to deal and solve the problems helping your dog to become a good friend.

You will also find an important part on First Aid Vet to learn how to deal with emergency like CPR (cardio pulmonary resuscitation).

To keep us in contact, I also created a group of this course called “Udemy Dog Care group” where you can make questions, exchange opinions, and enjoy the valuable content posted every day only for you . Don’t forget to join it !
