“Build The Future Course 3 has been an absolute revelation for me, has done wonders for Tighnearnan physically and mentally, and has been such a pleasure. I was really worried about how little experience and knowledge I was bringing to it, but Kay and my classmates were wonderfully encouraging and helpful, and I learned so much that I can transfer and apply in so many scenarios.”

“I have never been in a class with so much vigor to learning, so much striving to give and to try so hard to learn new ways and understand. All of this centered around providing the best for the pups!”

The importance of thinking in terms of developing skills rather than building behaviours”

“The value of a dynamic and engaged learning community where everyone’s working on different skills from which I can learn in so many diverse ways.”

We discovered more about each other, learned to communicate better, and shared so much pleasure at creating and exploring together.”
