Practical training with your own dog 

Level 2 is divided into 2 parts: basic and advanced course. Upon successful completion a course certificate will be awarded for each level.

If you want to complete the Diploma, you need both level 2A and 2B.

Both courses are two weekend seminars (4 full days) each.

If you don’t have your own dog, you can do the exercises with a dog from a family member or a friend.

I’d like to say thank you for such an interesting and useful course!
I don’t know you did it but  you created an amazing combination of useful information, practical work and deep understanding the nuances of dog’s reactions — and all of this in a friendly and positive atmosphere!
 It was pure enjoyment to  study in such a great international team of dog-lovers and the only thing I’m sorry for that it came to an end, so im looking for the level 3 and level 4

I want to thank all of you for such a great lifechanging experience! I think studying in your school has been one of my life’s best choice.
Somebody asked me what is the most important thing I studied at level 1? At first it was hard to answer, because every lesson was so valuable for me! Then I sayd: “ You can be just a dog owner or owner of a happy dog! To have a happy dog, a big job also has to be done not just listening the lessons. But life with a happy dog is worth all of that!
The weekends I was attending in level 2 were the most interesting, funny, challenging days with best company. Very very huge thanks to Tanya & Elena for such a warm, helpful and wise company in our journey!
I really hope to see you all at level 3, I wish my dream will come true!
