Loved this course! It covered a lot of those “little” things that we sometimes skip in training but can make problems down the track. It’s changed the way I train my dog! Five stars ⭐️

This course was full of interesting information, I will certainly need time to practise all the exercises with my dog. I thought there was a good mix of technical/theoretical and the practical hands on topics. Thanks to Laura, Fiona and the Border terriers for a fun day!

Great day. My brain is mush now but will hopefully reform full of new , practical information! Will definitely be encouraging other dog nerds to go to do this course in future. Super useful information and some cute doggos to work with! Thanks for a great day. Needs more of those Fionadors though ! haha
