Thank-you for visiting my website. Now that covid has relaxed a little, and we can once again consider offering our live events, we are currently planning a Level 1 Introductory Weekend Workshop. It will be in the spring of 2022, and although a date has yet to be confirmed, it will be following shortly. If this is of interest to you, then please complete the form below, and we will keep you updated on the creation of the course, and when we are accepting enrolment.
Please take a quick look at the 1 minute video below, and/or read the summary of how my course can help you with a better understanding of dog psychology – Thank-you.. Glen Stanford
While answering questions regarding my courses, I have taken note of all the dog enthusiasts comments and suggestions. This has helped me construct this tutorial that will offer a condensed 2 day program, studying the subject of dog psychology. The purpose of this is to make the understanding of dog behaviour and rehabilitation more accessible to all those that are interested in the subject. The Weekend Introductory Workshop will..
1. Avoid having to take time off work.
2. Make the class more affordable.
3. Will reduce the travelling time. (Once we continue to offer our courses around the UK).
As I have already mentioned, the comments that I noted, meant that unfortunately some enthusiasts could not attend because, either they could not have weekdays off work, or afford the total cost of a more extensive course, plus travel and accommodation meant the it proved a financial strain, or that it was simply too far to travel. The Level 1 Weekend Workshop course will remedy all of these issues.
This will be a condensed tutorial that will cover all the philosophical and theoretical aspects that are an essential part of understanding dog behaviour, and more importantly, how to influence negative behaviour in a positive way. It will offer a fundamental foundation, and will be fully informative to dog owners, dog lovers, dog walkers, trainers, and enthusiasts alike. Also included are real life dog problems. Applicants are welcome bring their dog along to the tutorial, and any dog related issues your pet may have can be discussed, and the dog maybe included as part of a demonstration. If you would like to bring your dog with you, please include some details such as breed, age, and a brief description of the dogs problem (if it has any) in the questions box at the bottom of the application form. We will attempt to accept as many as possible, but please appreciate that there is only a limited amount of time available, and there are a vast array of topics to cover. Please be aware that the intention of the course is to educate YOU, not train problematic dogs, although demonstrations using such dogs will help illustrate the topic being explained.
(To avoid any confusion and/or disappointment, please understand that dogs attending can be discussed and assessed, and if myself or an instructor can offer an on the spot improvement, we gladly will, but please do not assume that this is an opportunity to solve a long standing problem. It is not. It is an opportunity to learn more about helping dogs with problems, and fulfilling their needs.)
To ensure this 2 day tutorial is accessible and affordable, we have kept all the extras to a minimum. The weekend will take place in a classroom/village hall type environment. This is a basic introductory course, in a casual environment. Please do not expect a corporate presentation in an expensive venue. There will be tea/coffee and biscuits available on arrival each day. You are welcome to bring your own refreshments/lunch, should you choose to.
On completing the application below, you will be taken to a payment page. Once payment has been made, you will be sent a return email that will list what you will need to bring with you, full address of the location, and the class times.
Below is a list of just SOME of the topics covered on this weekend of dog psychology.
