Linda is a master at taking relevant, evidence-based research on canine nutrition and putting it into understandable and practical applications for the learner. The course provides up-to-date information on macro- and micro-nutrient needs for dogs as well as so incredibly helpful information about many of the myths and trends in feeding our canine companions. She approaches feeding issues from a scientific lens, recognizing the need for guidance in current trends and offers pros and cons of various feeding methods that help us, the consumer and canine guardians, decide the best food in proper amount to help our dog friends thrive. As a human nutritionist and registered dietitian, I was impressed with the advanced level clinical/technical information provided, and I learned or re-learned a ton of information in both the macro- and micro-nutrient areas. An added bonus is the clearly described biochemistry that underpins all of nutritional processes. As an instructor in both face-to-face and online teaching formats at the college level, I was completely wowed by this educational format. The online learning platform, the pace, videos, voice-over power points, and opportunities to interact with Linda online and multiple other learning tools in this course are stellar. I can't wait for the next course!

I highly recommend this comprehensive science-based course for those interested in developing a deeper understanding of the essential nutrients and nutritional requirements of what we should be feeding our dogs. This is exactly the type of course you would expect from a world renowned nutrition expert who has written books on the subject of canine nutrition. Linda Case provides a condensed version of "Canine Nutrition" in 10 simple to follow chapters that include video lectures, supplemental reading, and a short quiz to test yourself on your comprehension of the individual subjects. You will learn things like what a true quality protein is, and why the omega 3s in your dog’s food may not be contributing the health benefits like helping with inflammatory disorders such as joint pain.
