Course Feedback


I highly recommend the consultation course by IMDT. I loved the practical nature of the course and the realistic scenarios that we explored. It was great to connect with other 'dog' people and learn in a non-judgemental environment. Thank you so much.



This Consultation Course has it all - the perfect balance between theory and practical training in a fun, safe learning environment. A wonderful course for those training to be an IMDT trainer (like me), and experienced trainers who want to re-fresh their skills or learn something new, not only about doing consults, but the "business side" of being a trainer. There's also plenty of opportunities to network with your pet professional peers and ask questions of the IMDT team. I love the way IMDT courses are presented. Thank you Laura and Fiona.



My first in person IMDT course and I'm hooked!
Laura was wonderful and it was mighty reinforcing being around like-minded people.

This course offers a safe space to ask questions about your consulting side of training and helps you practice the real life scenarios you're bound to experience - all with a lot of great laughs along the way!

Highly recommend for those just starting out, or those like myself who need some confirmation.

Today I attended the IMDT Consultation Skills course and I thought it was absolutely fantastic!

I have recently started my own little dog training business and this course gave me so much useful information in a very friendly, non-judgmental group of people. I went straight home and started to apply what I'd learnt right away!

I highly recommend this course to anyone thinking about stepping out on their own to start their dog training business.

Attended the course today (5/7/20) and found it very informative. Laura and Fiona are great facilitators as they always bring an element of humour to the courses they provide, are very professional in their approach and are experienced trainers able to answer all those burning questions you might have. As always, I learned loads from them and the other attendees. Thank you all for a great day 👍

Hi Ladies, I just wanted to give you both a MASSIVE thank you for Sunday’s course. A few things you said really hit home. To not undervalue the trade is so important. I always worried about value for money so I tried to give too much info and stay too long. Both are counterproductive. I’m going to totally change how I conduct my consultations and my fee. I was never really in a position to ask and get this kind of help and information being such a sensitive subject so again thank you.



Great course ! Give you confidence to start taking private consultations while meeting other dog people🙂
