Training Meister Journeyman 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.

Training Meister Journeyman is a comprehensive dog training course.

Journeyman Course Overview

Training Meister Journeyman is the Level Two course.  This course builds on all the skills and knowledge gained in the Apprentice course. The Journeyman course sees you continue your journey on the road to becoming a Master in the art and craft of force-free training and tricks!

You will continue to learn about the science behind the training and build on your teaching skills, while having lots of fun!  You will refine your ability to communicate with your learner in order to set them up for success and as you continue to increase your knowledge and add to your skill-set, you will be amazed at the progression made by both you and your dog or other companion animal.
