”I must write to express my thanks for the fantastic Think Dog Practical course I attended recently. It was wonderful to gain hands on and practical experience with the dogs from the rescue centre and highlighted to me how completely different it is to work with an unknown dog with whom you haven’t forged a bond.
Nothing you read in a book can compare with the experience of handling dogs in person. I learnt so much about first impressions, the risk assessment of dogs and assessing dog behaviour and it was fascinating to see the huge array of body language that dogs portray that many of us don’t even notice! The course also showed the wonders of clicker training and proved to me how simple and effective this reward based method of training is. The course was fun to do, in a relaxed environment and very enjoyable thank you.”
