This is an opportunity to attend a full 5 day course covering all the theory and practical exercises needed to develop your own life skills course, or integrate the exercises within existing training classes. Suitable for trainers at all levels from early career to advanced.
Taught by Lynn Hewison and Kevin McPeake who are part of the Life Skills team.
What does this course offer that the book doesn’t?
Written specifically for puppy owners, the book presents the life skills concepts in a user friendly version for the typical puppy owner. It does not contain any of the technical or scientific underpinning to the concepts, nor does it go into detail on how to structure exercises for a training class environment, or how to educate owners in this setting. The trainers’ course offers a complete package, where we will share with attendees the theories, research and practical interventions that are currently being used and developed as part as of an ever evolving programme.
Although the course will go into much more depth, we do recommend that all people registering for the course read the book, which is why we include a copy in your delegate bag!
Much more than just a dog training course…
There are many courses available in the UK aimed at teaching attendees practical dog training and instructing skills. However, what we are offering in the ‘Life Skills for Puppies Training for Trainers’ course is very unique.
The ‘Life Skills for Puppies Training for Trainers’ course will be delivered Lynn and Kevin that not only have excellent practical dog training skills, but who are also experienced teachers and researchers working at the forefront of scientific research, and who in addition work with clinical behaviour cases on an on-going basis. The content will be encased in scientific theory, including the latest research and current thinking in the field of dog behaviour.
Includes lectures, workshops, practical sessions, full set of lesson handouts with detailed explanations on how to teach the 10 life skills,
