Training Meister Apprentice Course
A five session programme to work through over 5 months.
Training Meister – Mastering Fun and Increasing Your Team Knowledge & Skills is a unique programme aimed at increasing the knowledge and training skills of both dog guardians and pet professionals. The aim of the Training Meister courses is to teach the science behind the training as well as all the skills needed to train a pet dog, with a big emphasis on enjoyment. We firmly believe that all training should be fun but knowledge based. We also believe in setting the learner up for success. This applies both to our human learners and their canine buddies! Watch this short video on how the programme works.
