AN AMAZING COURSE, I JUST LOVED IT! This course is all about getting out there and teaching classes, building your confidence, so much practical experienced gained by doing this course. The attendees and presenters were all welcoming and very supportive of each other. I has the best 4 days training my dog as well as learning! SO MUCH FUN!
Amazing course! I learnt so much from the IMDT team and have found some new confidence for incorporating some fun new ideas into classes. The feedback is invaluable and the other trainers made for a supportive and uplifting group!
As a total beginner to the dog training world i was really nervous about doing this course and I'm not going to lie day one was a real struggle . Being around so many knowledgeable people I questioned wether or not I belonged in the course - BUT by day 4 I confidently gave a full 20 minute class! I can't recommend this course highly enough the wealth of knowledge I have taken away from Fiona, Laura and all the other people on the course is amazing :) and I'm looking forward to doing all the other courses!
Thanks again for all the support and encouragement especially when I thought I couldn't do it - Sian
