Animal Training Lecture, Workshops & Clinics for professionals.

Here’s the difference:

A lecture is a powerpoint presentation, These can run from 2 hrs to 2 days. There will be a lot of video footage and potentially a live demo or two.

A workshop is a combination sessions of short (30 – 60 min) lectures and group hands-on work. There is usually two lectures and two – three hands-on sessions. Maximum of 20 teams.

A Clinic is the best thing ever for deep learning through discussion and observation. There will be a short (30min) lecture at the top of the clinic and the rest of the time will involve me working one on one with each dog and handler team in attendance. Observers get to hear and see in real time the training choices we make and the effect on the animal’s behaviour. I have found these fantastic for promoting discussion, team building and the building of skill of analysing behaviour via the ABC functional assessment of behaviour. Science in the real world.

The Animal Training Clinics listed below all run for approximately 4 hours. They allow for 6 – 7 working spots (dog and handler teams) and as many observer positions as the venue allows, though preference is to keep it under 40.

The clinics are designed for professional trainers or the enthusiastic owner. We do a lot of private clinics for clubs and groups so feel free to drop a line should you think this would be useful to your group. Below are the currently planned public clinics for 2017.
