Great and really useful!!!
As usual the course was great. Lots of good advice and information, tipps etc. The seminar was entertaining and highly informative. The IMDT instructor was lots of fun and had a really broad knowledge and insight. Can recommend it to future dog trainers
This was a very informative and helpful course. I am just learning about dog behaviour and was worried that it would be too advanced for me but all content was explained clearly. The presenter's knowledge and experience was evident throughout the day. The content was comprehensive and very relevant. The IMDT tutor was was happy to answer any and all of our questions and gave tips for personal dog-related issues. There were plenty of breaks to help keep us focused online. I would definitely recommend this course.
Awesome seminar! Very informative, engaging and attention grabbing. Did not feel like 6 hours at all. Recommend this for aspiring dog trainers and good parents .
I volunteer at a dog rescue and I have been trying to learn about canine body language through observation, reading books on the subject, and asking people who know. The course was fantastic and just what I needed. All my chaotic and fragmented knowledge got organised, upgraded, and solidified, and I learned so much new stuff! Explained in a straightforward, accessible way, and the course content is brilliant. I now have 15 A4 pages of notes to go through again but I will do what my dog used to do when she learned something new - I will sleep on it :) I have just booked another IMDT course - it's definitely money well spent.
A really excellent course. I have had dogs lifelong and often seem to 'know' things about how they are feeling without knowing why - this course has taught me so much about what it is I am seeing that tells me. It was packed full of information, with lots of video examples. The presenter was very engaging and also generous in sharing his wealth of experience. A very worthwhile way to spend the day!
Recently I’ve lost my interest in the animal care industry, the passion of both IMDT Presenter and the people who attended the course alongside me as well as the abundance of interesting information has renewed my interest. Really enjoyed this course 👍🏻
Outstanding seminar as always! A must for anyone studying dog training and behaviour.
Incredibly interesting and informative, well structured with lots of little videos to help explain what was being taught. Loved it!
I attended this course today and it was presented by Alan . I absolutely loved it and can see this helping so many people in so many ways . I love the fact that I shall now be watching not just my own dogs but other peoples dogs with a much greater understanding of what is going on in K9 conversations 😁 great content and really well explained
This was my 3rd in person course and 2nd one presented by Alun. Again, I thoroughly enjoyed the course content. Lots of video footage to watch and analyse what was happening for the dog. Alun was very informative and friendly and nothing was too much for him! Can't wait for the 4 dayer in May!
This is my third course presented by Mus. Excellent content and presentation!
Another amazing day, this time learning about Canine Body Language and as always, it was delivered with boundless enthusiasm by the enigmatic Mus. It's impossible not to be totally inspired and rush home to book your next IMDT class! Loved it and I'll be back (as they say...).
Very useful course. Informative yet easy to access, really enjoyed it and learnt a lot. Highly recommend it if you're considering attending!
Fantastic courses with a fantastic instructor. I recommend this course to all dog owners & professionals.
Systematic, comprehensive, and underpinned by good science, but taught in an accessible, engaging, and lively manner. All learning points are supported by discussion, questions and answers, and videos. The instruction is clear, highly engaging, lively, and encouraging. A thoroughly enjoyable course, and one I'd recommend for all guardians.
Mus delivered this course really well. It was very engaging and he answered every question asked which was really helpful and inclusive. Nice mix of delivery and breaks too for a Zoom course. Thank you :-)
Systematic, comprehensive, and underpinned by good science, but taught in an accessible, engaging, and lively manner. All learning points are supported by discussion, Q
Great zoom course, the content was good with videos to cement the explanations and even though you are not in a room with everyone, Mus made you feel very included
I was a bit worried as had to do this course by Zoom instead of face to face. I needn't have been! Great course, lots of valuable information and advice if needed. Mus managed to keep it interesting and upbeat despite talking to a computer! Highly recommended this course.
This was a great day full of useful information that was delivered in an accessible and enjoyable way throughout. Mus is a great teacher who really knows his stuff and the video footage was a very useful way of illustrating the points being made, allowing us to engage meaningfully with the many different elements presented. I also want to say that I was really impressed by the procedures that were in place re. covid - everything felt very safe throughout. Thanks for a great day and see you for the next one!
Great course, delivered well, with plenty of examples shown through video. This is a must-do course for all dog professionals!
Even if you think you know dogs you will learn SO much from this course, it's superbly delivered and everyone is friendly and welcoming. Would highly recommend to everyone!
Great 1 day course, for dog owners to pro trainers... from overview to in depth with slides videos discussion and q
You guys are fantastic!English is not my native language and I still have a lot to learn and you still manage to make yourself understud. You presented every step with various examples and that helped me a lot.Body language was the first course for me but for sure not the last one.
Everyone needs to learn this stuff at school... this course really opened my eyes to all the different conversations dogs clearly communicate through their behavioural repertoires... and how us humans so often let them down by failing to receive or not acting upon their polite messages. Fascinating how physical breed characteristics also cause confusion during interactions between different breeds. A great in depth discussion of the contextual associations we need to review before (mis)interpreting behaviours. And a very useful look at how we can better read our dogs in order to manage environmental stress / over-arousal / aggression, using this knowledge to better teach dogs how to live their best possible lives.
I thoroughly enjoyed completing the Canine Body Language day, very welcoming and friendly and the delivery of the course was easily digestible. Would highly recommend!
This is a really good course. Highly recommended.
Do it! If you own or are working with dogs, you need to do this course. It's brilliant, informative and great to learn
This was my 4th IMDT course and just as enjoyable and fascinating as the others. Delivered in such a relaxed way with good humour and always time to answer any questions and make sure people are getting what they want from the course, whilst staying on track to deliver everything seamlessly and never rushed. The teaching style is excellent (as I have found with all IMDT instructors) and so enjoyable that you almost don't realise how much you are learning.... until you get home and your brain starts processing all this new information!!Cant wait for next month and more courses!!! Thank you IMDT Team.
Great course and so important if you are working with dogs! Everyone needs educating on how to pick up on dogs body language to keep our dogs safe and allow them to be heard by signals!
This was my first course with the IMDT and I loved it! I'm new to the dog training world but I didn't feel out of place at all and Steve's enthusiasm and the course content has left me buzzing and excited to learn more. The course was engaging the whole way through and was presented in an easy to understand way. I didn't want it to end! I am already booked on to another course and am about to book another! Also as a side note, I was really impressed with the lunch provided as I have various intolerance's so bought my own lunch but they had actually provided gluten free lunches and soya milk. Massive thumbs up! I would highly recommend this course and the IMDT!! :)
This course is just amazing. It was my first but I'm already looking to book more. I've already recommended it to other people, so useful whether you're a dog owner, a dog walker or work with dogs in any other capacity.
I've been on a few IMDT courses and they have all been brilliant but this one has been my favourite so far. Really helped increase my understanding of canine body language. Steve helps put learning in to practical terms which really helps
It was a great course to attend to understand better of the body language.
Another great course, lots of information presented in a brilliant way. Thanks
I could sometimes be unsure ready a dogs body language but as usual after an IMDT course it's given me the confidence in my knowledge. Thank you folks.
This course is a must for anyone who lives, works with or associates with dogs in any way. Such a fun, educational day learning about my favourite subject. Thank you!
Great day, very informative as expected from an IMDT course. Put things into perceptive having the additional understanding. Love watching dogs now! Thank you.
This course was fabulous. I felt I already had a good knowledge of canine body language but this course made me realise that context and the bigger picture are more important than one single behaviour! Eye opening, fun and well presented. Would highly recommend this course for anybody who has an interest in dogs, works with them or owns a dog that they would like to understand better! Great stuff, thank you
This course is a must! Highly recommend. I learnt so much.
Awesome,. This course is a must for anyone who have a dog. Filled with knowledge + information. Imdt is in a class on their own when it comes to seminars and work shops, their coaching and communication skills are brilliant, I feel inspired and motivated for more, thank you IMDT.
A brilliant course that leaves you speaking another language with your dog. Massively useful base for other IMDT courses as well. I would highly recommend to owners and trainers.
An amazing course led by Steve and Alison, I came away with loads of information and learnt so much. I booked the 4-day course whilst on the back of my experience here over the weekend. Met lots of doggy people and shared experiences. Back to work on the Monday I found myself observing the dogs based on the information I gained. Thoroughly recommend IMDT and the staff to anyone
Steve is a really good teacher, really funny and informative. I learnt a lot on this course, and stuff I wouldn't have thought about
Well worth the time and money. As a dog owner I feel I can better piece together dogs body language to try and keep them comfortable
Essential for anyone who handles dogs. I've been geeking out on body language today whilst out walking and I will now been known as a 'dog watcher' not a 'people watcher'
An absolute must for anyone who has anything to do with dogs. The course was delivered in Steve's usual style; fun, witty and informative, with the IMDT's usual friendly and welcoming atmosphere.
This course was utterly brilliant and introduces you to the subtleties of dog body language, and how to interpret kinesics that the dog displays and what it means. You really will see a dogs movement and body language in an entirely different way and be able to understand and interact with them so much better. Steve made it understandable, fun and presented it with a lot of humour.
This course was brilliant, I learnt absolutely loads! As Christine said, a definite 'must' for anyone who works with or even owns a dog. Highly recommended.
A dynamic presentation of a fascinating subject!Aided by his canine helpers Pablo, Pele and Nancy ( so cute), Steve opens your eyes to the 'world of dogs', teaching you observational skills and interpretation, in a fun way.A brilliant course for anyone interested in Canine Body Language and well recommended.
Yet another excellent course from IMDT. A must for everyone who either works with or owns dogs. I learnt so much about what to look for when dogs are trying to communicate with us, things which can be missed if we are not "listening" to them. As always, Steve and the IMDT team were great. An fabulous weekend of courses.
This course was fantastic! I learn't loads when it came to considering the small and quick signals dogs show when trying communicate with us which can easily be missed if you're not listening to them. I now can't stop looking at my dogs... Had a great day with lots of humor. Steve and the team were great. Thanks for a great weekend.
Brilliant course and a real eye opener - I am now looking at my dogs in a new light! There is so much to learn from how dogs communicate and this course provides the information needed to do just that.
Fab course. At last I see what dogs are telling us and other dogs. Loved it.
Yet another great course. Steve makes you feel welcome and at ease. I describe him to my husband " like everyone's favourite big brother". I always learn something new ( even if it was only how well Pablo gives kisses!). Great venue. Great course content. Great bunch of delegates. Lunch was good too. Thank you. Steve and team.
Attended this course this weekend. Steve's presenting is very easy to understand and humorous too which made it very easy to comprehend and more so enjoy. Pablo, pele and Nancy made the day watching their interactions. Now home and I have become my dogs stalkers watching their every move to practice 'reading' them. Great course, very informative in a relaxed atmosphere. Only one observation is the conference seating arrangement made it difficult to see the videos, much better when we moved seats around perimeter of room it gave clear view of screen.
I absolutely loved this course. Such a valuable aspect to working with dogs Learning about the subtleties of the canine communication which can easily be missed if you dont know what to look for. I could do this course over and over again LOVED IT!!!!
Once you've been on this course you'll never look at a dog in the same way again! There is so much to consider when observing a dogs behaviour and body language and this course uses lots of practical demonstrations and opportunities to observe real life dogs in different environments. Well put together with a touch of comedy thrown in, makes for a fun and informative day.
