Just completed the Perfect Puppy course. I thoroughly enjoyed the content and will be putting so much into practice. Alun is a great instructor who was approachable and easy to talk to! A definite must for those wanting to run puppy classes or just understand growth and development of puppies!!
Had a great day, loads to learn and I came away with lots to think about,The course structure was great , everyone was friendly and interested. Expertly delivered, thank you for a great day.
Absolutely hoot on the 1 day perfect puppy course. You learn so much in a fun relaxed environment. It’s a must on your IMDT journey
Fantastic course! Easy to follow with lots of opportunities to ask questions. Great trainer.
Such a credit to the IMDT team. Masses of knowledge gained, never a dull moment in these courses. Highly recommended!
Absolutely loved every minute of this course!
This was a fantastic day, really well put together, really well paced and the trainer was so knowledgeable and motivated about the topic it really helped deliver the information with friendliness. I really recommend this course to anyone that has involvement with puppies.
Absolutely loved this course, really gets you thinking about how a dog develops, loved the fact it was a Zoom course as I struggle to get time to take all the courses that I want to do this way there is no travel time to worry about and Steve gave plenty of opportunity to ask questions and he answered everyone. You get course notes and if anything else is beneficial to the group Steve sent it afterwards.
Really great course, highly recommend for anyone who would like to learn more about puppy issues and the development.
Good course covering all a new puppy owner should know. The course was presented well and Mus took time to answer all questions and managed to finish on time.
It was fantastic. I learned so much that will benefit clients, and of course benefit me, through developing my skills.
A great day, packed full of useful and interesting information. The practical application to the practising or prospective trainer is well-considered and carefully integrated throughout, which is invaluable. Mus is a great speaker, always engaging well with everyone and making the material interesting and accessible throughout. I would certainly recommend this course and can't wait for the others that I will be undertaking! Thanks for a great day. :o)
Really interesting discussion of all the background protocols for socialisation, introducing positive exposure to stimuli, and setting pups up for behavioural success . I really enjoyed going through the structure of puppy clases, the training details for each specific behaviour, and the protocols to enable positive experiences and errorless learning for pups (and handlers!). Great tips on puppy home visits , client management, and use of training theory to succeesfully unlock the full spectrum of desirable behaviours with ease.
Fantastic day. Clearly explained, well laid out and at a good pace. Lots of examples and backed up with videos.Really enjoyed the day and the interaction with the other student. Had lots of light bulb moments. Thank you very much.
A comprehensive and fun course taking you through all the essentials for puppy classes including development and watch outs. Delivery is just superb - easy to understand, great real life examples and plenty of opportunity to ask questions.
Hi I had a great day at the perfect puppy course in Liverpool, it was so informative and things were easily explained. . I also went back the next day for Aggression and Rehabilitation which was brilliant as expected..I would recommend to everyone who wants to further their knowledge.
Fantastic course, learnt so much.explained everything in detail so it really sinks in
Really enjoyed this one
A great day!
I went on this course and found it extremely informative, the tutor is one of the most knowledgeable people I have ever met. He is amazing and I just wish I had the knowledge he has. All of the IMDT courses are amazing and you learn loads attending them.
Yet another super course! So much really valuable information packed into one day. I have already used one tip for one of my dog walking customers who has a 4 month old pup who is mouthing a lot Thank you to Mus who is always great to listen to and really knows his stuff. I'll be back for more!
Left me buzzing and wanting to try out new exercises. Real in depth knowledge to help plan classes and help owners understand the stages their puppies are going through. If in doubt just book this course!
Lots of knowledge given in great light easy to understand way, full of fun day with superb IMDT family. Thank you for another great course.
Learnt so much, I really recommend this course..
Fabulously presented course with lots of really useful information including practical demos. Recommended to anyone wishing to gain knowledge and understanding around Puppies, their development and training
Excellent course. Steve knows his stuff inside out! I learnt lots of new ideas. Recommended to all.
A really useful course, as ever an informal approach with masses of brilliant information. Enjoyable and informative
My first IMDT course, highly recommended! Fantastic course, great content, looking forward to attending more
Great course and very informative, definitely recommend. Cannot wait to book on the next course . Thank you Steve and Mus
Great course covering the important needs of pups during the important development stages, delivered in an entertaining way as usual. A great learning experience.
Such a good day! Plenty of humour and plenty of informations! Was my first IMDT class and certainly not my last! I came away from this just wanting to learn more and more and cannot wait to attend more courses. Top notch work!
Excellent day and thoroughly enjoyable. My first IMDT course and I look forward to many more. Steve's enthusiasm is contagious and I came away buzzing and wanting to practice some of the things taught...especially the 20 minute rucksack walk!
I thoroughly enjoyed my first IMDT course and am looking forward to attending more in the future. Very informative and gave me a lot to think about.
Another fabulous course. Full of really great information and practical demo's. I have a puppy visit later today and I can't wait to share some ideas with the owners. Thank you!
Great course, packed with loads of really useful information and ideas for puppy consultations and group classes. A must for anyone working with pups!
Great course, really interesting and like all IMDT courses, came away with so much information. Steve has a very natural way of teaching and I'm really looking forward to my next course in January
Fab as always!
Fab as always!
I have been on many IMDT courses and I love them all and this one was no exception. Very informative and enjoyable and a must for anyone working with or raising puppies to ensure they have the foundation to grow into balanced, confident dogs.
Thank you for a really good day, with lots of information, in a fun and relaxed way. Will be looking out for more course to attend with IMDT.
Fantastic course, learning everything every puppy owner should know. This is a must if you run puppy classes or have a puppy of your own. We've used a lot from this course in our classes.
As always an excellent and informative day, delivered in a supportive environment and in an entertaining and easy to absorb format. Covered everything you could ever wish to know with a good mix of theory and practical. Leaves you feeling confident that you can go out there and make a difference and you leave with new friends and connections to support you in your endeavor. Now I can't wait until the next course on my list!!!
Excellent foundation course with a nice mix of theory and practical. The course is delivered in a fun but professional way which makes learning easy. I have completed several IMDT courses over the last few years and I am sure I will do more in the future.
I would highly recommend this course. Great mix of theory & practical elements to add to my 'Trainer's Toolbox'!
Less practical / hands on demos that I had expected but very thoroughly enjoyed and learned alot. Would have been good if Steve gave more details on the sources behind the science for those of us interested in the academic side. Thanks alot, looking forward to the Aggression course in April.
Entertaining and Interesting with lots of useful info. Good mix of theory and practical work. This is the 3rd course I have been on with the IMDT and haven't been disappointed and well worth travelling all the way from Devon for. Looking forward to doing more courses with the Imdt.
If you work with puppies this course is an absolute must. The information is so clear and sympathetic to the needs of a little pup. I loved learning about the different aspects of puppy development and with the practical demonstrations it was perfect. Another IMDT course that I could do over and over again !!!!!!
I'd heard good things about the IMDT and chose this as the first course to do. I really enjoyed the course and wouldn't have thought I could possibly learn so much in just one day. I came away really inspired by what I'd learned and was determined to be part of this amazing organisation. I have since gone on to do other courses with the IMDT and am now proud to say I am a full member. This is a great starting point for anyone who wants to be a really good trainer and, if you do this course, I am sure (like me) you'll be left wanting to do more.
A great day, I really enjoyed the practical and video clips. I am looking forward o the 4 day programme. thanks
A really entertaining, informative and enjoyable day. Lots of interesting information with a good mix of theory and practical exercises. Would definitely recommend.
Learnt loads and a brilliant course all about different stages a puppy grows and learns and interactive course making you think on how to do different activities and exercises with the puppy and always fun as well..
Fabulous course as usual. Learnt loads about puppies and how to structure classes. Great group of people with the dogs best interest at heart. I feel much more confident about running some puppy classes now.
Really informative day. As a dog trainer 90% of the dogs I work with our puppies, this was a day well spent. This course gave me the confidence to start puppy parties for a local vet who now recommend me to all their canine clients.
Really informative course. lots of helpful bits of info, well laid out and presented as with all IMDT courses
