This experience is for 4 months and the beginning of a lifetime of a learning community. You will be working with other participants, sharing experience, suggestions and creating ideas and solutions.

➤  We shall discover what is at the heart of what your dog enjoys, be curious about the skills and activities we can build together and strengthen resilience for bad weather.

➤  We shall resolve uncertainties, balance the extremes and find enthusiasm for learning new pathways.

➤  We shall make individual plans that are the core of your future together. Exploring techniques that build through designed learning experience.

Choose a PROJECT that light your passion – or perhaps need guidance and feedback? From finding the pleasure in movement with a partner: movement of dance, of heelwork, of agility, of play … of walking side by side. Or a series of micro-dreams. 
Learning how communication evolves from movement. Conscious moves, awareness of language, adapting and watching and listening.


Learning surrounds us when we give it space. It is in every minute we are together. This type of learning is a process of thinking as we do the specific activities, but also the watching and listening as well as the walking and washing up.

Community learning is about sharing ideas, reflecting on progress and actively engaging with others …. but dry your hands first. You can learn through the work of others. 

The three core skills courses are my body of work that will get you started with best foot forward, many steps, many moments, a pathway. Resources for support, for fallback that will grow as your skills grow. For life.

For this course you will need to enrol and have a chance to read and explore the Build the Learning course, but I would strongly recommend you get the discount with the Package. 

What you will get

Regular feedback, questions and coaching from me and the group, specific activities and topics for consideration, options to join regular live sessions which are also recorded and kept in the archive for the whole course. .

If you are enthusiastic about learning, developing and building your relationship, connection and skills then you will be very welcome. This is unlikely to be a walk in the park, at times it may be hard work, it will require purposeful thinking as well as quality time spent with your dog. It will not be time wasted.

I will challenge you to do better work, explore new ideas, rethink what you thought you knew. Surround yourself working alongside others and spending your time with your dog working on a project of your passion in your individual situation and relationship.

Doing the work that leads to the most learning. 

Reflection on individual learning is integral with progress and a non-optional requirement. Feedback from me is dependent on this process. Lack of participation may result in limited continuation.

You will create your own journal, plans, project, video progress, lifestyle and activities.

Not for you

If you plan to be a passive spectator, auditor or intend to harvest material generated by the work of others then this course is not for you. You will be given two weeks to demonstrate active participation after which your access to the community will be limited.

If this type of commitment to learning is beyond your interest then please do not join us.
