Our 1 month long online courses aim to train dogs in stages. The main focus is to develop the handlers observational skills, their mechanical movements and practice how to be an effective and productive trainer. The course is organized on the Clickmeetings platform, with weekly meetings. Separate one-on-one meetings with participants can be arranged if necessary. A Facebook or WhatsApp group will be used where the participants will submit their videos for assessment. It is our experience that it is beneficial for all participants to follow all the videos and comment. Every participant will receive feedback and answers to any questions at least once a day. Each course begins when a sufficient number of participants is gathered, which is between 6 and 12 and will start between the 1th and 5th of each month.
Fee for one online course 490 EUR
