CPD & Training for Dog Trainers

At Positive Dog Training we believe that we are constantly learning from the dogs that we have in our care and we are firm advocates of furthering our own, our fellow dog trainers and our customers' knowledge base in relation to our pet dogs.

With this in mind, we offer on occasion, courses, weekend and 1-day seminars and workshops with some of the best known and respected pet professional s in the field of dog training and behaviour modification. Check out our previous workshops and seminars.

We have hosted over the last 7 years industry leaders such as Steve Mann, Sarah Kalanjas, Kay Laurance, Ken Ramirez, Sarah Fisher, Rob Hewings, Kay Laurence, David Brice, Karen Wild, Nando Brown, Mustafa Ozmus & Nicole Wilde. 


These seminars are suitable for anyone who loves dogs and wants to learn the latest information about their behaviour and the most humane, ethical and scientifically proven methods to train and manage them.
