What do other people think about this course?

I would not hesitate to recommend anyone who has an interest in dogs to attend one of these sessions, not just professionals but pet dog owners. This would give them invaluable insight into their dogs behaviour and could be saving themselves and their dog a lifetime of problems and stress.

The instructor for the day, Alex Wilson had a great easy going, approachable yet professional manner. He obviously had the days agenda to go through with the aid of slides and pictures but seemed perfectly happy and comfortable to veer off course and answer open questions throughout the session. He demonstrated a clear understanding of the subject but without preaching and continually invited discussion and opinions from the group.

Excellent canine body language course. Very interesting, informative easy to understand and perfectly delivered by the instructor Alex Wilson.


Amanda Burton

I throughly enjoyed my recent course .Alex Wilson made it very interesting and relaxed. We all took part in the layout of the course which made it easy to stay focused on the topic of Canine Body Language and take in the information taught. I took a lot on board and some great ideas, which I’m using on my very stubborn English Bull. It’s also given me confidence in my thinking of wanting to do more work with Dogs personally and maybe even eventually, on a professional level?
