Dog Training Seminars / Workshops

Detector Dog Australia Seminars

Of course, everyone wants an extraordinary dog. The question is, what does it take to create an extraordinary dog?

Hello All,

I been involved in training dogs for 34 years, subsequently I have been asked many times to share my training philosophy.

Having conducted numerous seminars shows me that I am in my element when I am teaching my passion.

I absolutely love it; hence, our seminars are designed to provide a powerful, accelerated learning experience.

Foremost, as a breeder and trainer I am committed to producing working dogs that truly represent our Philosophy - Clear, Intense, Robust, Powerfully Driven dogs that truly have a mindset of desire and a willingness to comply.

Conducted over 2 days, each day begins at 9:00a.m and ends late. While participants are not required to contribute, participation is collaborative and can only be described as exciting, rewarding, and fun.

The question has often been asked of me:

"What do the owners of extraordinary dogs know that the rest don't?"

The great dog trainers that I have known seem to possess an intuitive understanding that the only way to reach something higher is to focus their attention on the multitude of the seemingly insignificant, unimportant, and boring things that make up training dogs.

Those mundane and tedious little things that, when done exactly right, with the right kind of attention and intention, distinguishes every great trainer from those mediocre counterparts who are satisfied to simply get a result.

I believe that our training results can provide us with a mirror to see ourselves as we are, to see what we truly know and what we do not know, to see ourselves honestly, directly, and immediately.

Therefore seminars are about producing results not simply "how to do it"

I guess we all know that seminars only work if we put the hard work in ourselves.

Our seminars are about an idea that says your dogs training results are nothing more than a distinct reflection of who you are.

If your thinking is sloppy, your training will be sloppy.

If you are disorganised, your training will be disorganised.

If you are greedy, your people around you will be greedy, giving you less and less of themselves and always asking for more.

If your information about what needs to be done is limited, your training will reflect that limitation.
So, if your training results are to transform - you must transform first.

If you are unwilling to change, your dog will never be capable of giving you what you want.

The first change that needs to occur is to really understand your dog and what it takes to make him work. Once you fully understand the relationship every owner must have with his or her dog, if it to work, I can assure you that your results will take on a new meaning and expression.

Please feel free to contact us any time and we will be more than happy to discuss and create a specifically designed workshop for you, your Schutzhund Club or Law Enforcement Department
