Brilliant course. The instructor managed to keep a large group interested and learning for 2 days. His enthusiasm and aptitude for delivering information in easy to understand ways really made this course. The content is perfect for anybody starting to work with dogs or people with experience who need to refresh their theory based knowledge.

A brilliant two day course with an enthusiastic and knowledgeable trainer with a real passion for the subject. The atmosphere is supportive and no question is left unanswered. This is a great course for professionals as well as those of us who just want to be better at understanding our own dogs and becoming better dog parents!

Brilliant course, packed with a massive range of really useful information and some great tips that you'd struggle to find in books alone. Top notch teacher whose passion for the subject is very motivating. It is rare to find someone who is so positive and engaging. I really enjoyed the practical work we did and meeting all the other people on the course was a great opportunity to learn more about working in this field. Thanks!

I’ve attended the 2 Day, Canine Body Language and Canine Aggression and Rehabilitation. All of these courses were fantastic and Mus was great! Incredibly helpful, well spoken and patient with everyone, very nice guy and willing to spend his lunch and his breaks answering questions and chatting. I always come away from these courses feeling incredibly motivated. I’ve worked as a dog trainer for around a year and a half and there was so much I didn’t know! Since these courses I’ve put almost all the tips and tricks taught into practice. I’m excited for what’s next and hope to soon become an IMDT member.

This 2-day course went through all the theory of dog training right from the basics. It catered really well for all levels of knowledge. It's a classroom based course with a couple of demos with dogs. There were a mix of people attending from dog owners thinking of working with dogs in the future to dog walkers looking to move into training, to people already running their own training businesses looking to get accredited. It was a great start to build up my confidence about moving into dog training. The whole room was inspired

This course was fascinating and as a dog owner I learned a lot, my only criticism is I am addicted!! I have already booked the Body Language Course as I just want to keep learning more and more. I look forward to putting into practice the theory I have learned. A great course for everyone, you don't have to be a dog trainer, or even be aiming for that. If you love your dog, you will love this course.

This course is so good! It is packed with useful and detailed information. I was attending as I have just started my own dog walking business and I wanted to feel more confident with my dogs. After the two days however, as well as feeling like I had more information at my fingertips, I also felt inspired to think as dog training as something I would like to do. A huge thank you to Mus as he made the course fun and engaging. I am already thinking I would like to do another course with IMDT. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who either owns a dog, already works with dogs or who is thinking of a career working with dogs. Brilliant!

Brilliant course! Even though I am doing a IMDT correspondence course so I already knew a lot of the theory that was taught, but on this course it made the theory I knew and how I could it apply it practically and use it in the real world. There was also a lot taught that I did not know. Mus, who took the course was brilliant and very engaging as course's like this can sometimes be quite dry and you can often feel quite sleepy and switch off a bit, but even though due to having a 5 week old daughter so sleep is at a premium at the moment I felt engaged and enjoyed the whole 2 days!

Attended the course to gain an introduction to IMDT philosophy and an understanding of where dog training is progessing forward, and has already been (eek!!) I thought my favourite part would be seeing the dogs, but the comparisons between all mammals was fascinating, (including us two feeters.) Who am I kidding Little Hulk was amazing he stole the show! Steve, not really, that was the chicken. KIDDING.If you're are starting a career with dogs and people, you will find this course highly rewarding and informative.

I thought the session was ideal for people who are looking to start a career as a dog trainer and need to know the theory behind it. I think it is also good as a refresher, for someone like myself who had studied the theory but many years ago at university. The session was informative and I was made to feel most welcome by other attendees and Steve who ran the session. I would highly recommend to others and feel you will get so much out of thee course.Many thanksHelen

Steve made everyone feel very welcome and brought out peoples confidence with his charisma and humour. His cartoon drawing is not bad either :-) He encouraged discussions and answered all the questions with care and honesty. I cant wait to book myself onto the next course.

Highly recommend. Truly inspirational on so many levels. It was a "first step" for me and I felt, on my way to the course day 2, that I was exactly where I should be at that moment in time. The course has left me with so much inspiration and underlined the respect and "it" that I was already feeling having had the good fortune of training my dog with the IMDT. Anyone out there wondering whether to take that step...just do it because whether you decide to take it further or not, I predict that you won't regret it. Also it is a great chance to meet with like minded people whose passion may be presented in very different ways. So in three words.. Thought provoking (but mostly) wow!

This course was the starting point for my wonderful adventure into dog training. Be warned though it's a quest that becomes addictive as your thirst for knowledge, experience and confidence gains momentum. I cannot recommend becoming a member of the imdt family enough. So much so my partner is now embarking on his journey too

A valuable two days learning with Steve Mann. Steve has a very down to earth approach and his passion for working and rescuing dogs is evident. Steve uses a variety of training methods; PowerPoint, practical demonstrations and flip charts, which keeps the course very engaging. Although a large group, Steve answered every single question thrown at him. Steve's knowledge of dogs is second to none and his force free training methods are a joy to listen to. Looking forward to attending the 4 day course in March.

Well I can say that there is a reason why every single one of these reviews is 5 star and that is because it is just that good. From the moment you walk into the room Steve and the gang make you feel welcome and at ease.

You will also get a good understanding of how to hold a training class and conduct a 121 consult. How to get started in holding your own classes is also covered. By taking this course first before the 4/6 day course you will have a better understanding of how to get across the IMDT way of training.

Although I attended this course over 2 years ago, it was a great insight into the world of positive reinforcement training and the results on a dogs behaviour. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants an insight into motivation techniques that any dog will respond to. The 'miracle' of clicker training has been the story that I pass on to any puppy/dog owner that I meet. This course has been invaluable for myself and my 50 kg rescue dog Milo and we now have a much more positive and fulfilling relationship - all thanks to Steve.

The first lesson i took for dog training was with Steve and IMDT, in November 2011. I travelled from Greece to see what dog training is about after a long research on the internet to find a course that suited me best. It was a great course, i learned so many things but the most important to learn was that education, training, learning for dog trainers, never ends. Flying back to Athens i knew i want to try to be a dog trainer and be taught by Steve and IMDT. It is the best way to start your career as a dog trainer.

As always with Steve's courses, this was fun, very informative and I would not hesitate to recommend Steve and his team for training!

a great course. Steve presents it in such a way that its easy to understand and makes you think. Plenty of opportunity to ask questions and practical demonstrations. Good to put the science into practice.

One of the best courses I have attended so far! I had always struggled to understand some of the learning theory behind successful dog training. After completing the 2-day course, i finally understood! The course tutor Steve Mann, explained it in a way that finally made sense to me! Although there seems to be a lot of information to cram into 2 days, Steve has a natural ability to make the course fun, keep you laughing and leave you wanting to stay longer! I thoroughly recommend this course

This was my first introduction to the IMDT, which was recommended to me by a friend. The group were so welcoming and made it so fun to learn what was involved in creating a successful career as a dog trainer. I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to spread the word and use of positive training!

My gut instinct was that force free training was the way to go but I didn't fully understand the science that backs that up. During the two days I learned the theory of the many ways that we and dogs learn and how we can use this in training. The course covers so much more and, by the end of the two days, I was buzzing with ideas on how I could improve my own lessons. Steve Mann is a gifted teacher who gives information in an "easy to digest" way and with lots of humour. If only school had been like this..... I also had the pleasure of working with Steve's own dog, the adorable Pablo, who is a star in his own right and has improved my timing in clicker training. If you are reading this review, you are obviously considering doing the course. Book it and become one of the IMDT team. You won't regret it.

I did the 2 day course a while ago now. Being an older person and having only experienced the "old school shall we call it "sorts of training , it was like seeing the light and being allowed to relax and show how much I love and enjoy working with dogs. The stern face and sharp voice have gone for good. The course was so helpful on all fronts from new methods to business and client handing and some marketing ideas. Making an idea into a real possibility

I looked at many places and options to learn about becoming a Dog Trainer and I am so glad I chose the IMDT. The 2 day course is great, I learnt so much and there is a great balance of practical and theory. I would really recommend doing this course to anyone interested in dog training.

Although this is cheesy, this course certainly changed our lives for the better. We learnt so much in those two days, and realised how little we knew. As well as giving you the info in a friendly funny way, it gives you the confidence to begin a career in dog training. We can't recommend this course enough for anyone thinking about or wanting to be a trainer. We would also recommend the course to anyone who is working as a dog walker.

If you are thinking of making a career from Dog Training and Behavior this course will explain in a very relaxed atmosphere the reasoning behind positive reinforcement training. You will have a chance to ask any queries and will go away with a good understanding of how to start. Highly recommended course.

Absolutely awesome course. It set me up with the knowledge and confidence to know I could have this career. The 2 day career ad a dog trainer course taught me all about positive reinforcement and how dogs learn through association, with practicals as well as theory. After attending the course I signed up to do more with the IMDT straight away. Great people, Great courses

I don't know anyone who has done this course who hasn't 1) raved about it and 2) go on to do more and more IMDT courses. This is first step to being that dog trainer you have have always dreamt about. I loved these 2 days and I can honestly say they have changed my life! Book it now, before it fills up and you have to wait!

Although I had no intention of becoming a dog trainer as a career, I hoped that this course would provide me with the skills needed to assist me to manage my own dog more effectively. I found the course extremely helpful and applied many of the skills I learnt to my own situation with excellent results. I would highly recommend this course.

It's a long journey to become an excellent dog trainer, I was lucky enough to have this course be the beginning of mine. It gave me the very best foundation of knowledge I could have wished for in my desire and development towards excellence. A journey in which I am very much still on and the IMDT will always proudly be part of. The decision to attend the course and embrace the IMDT has changed my life. It offers a depth of understanding which each and every day I can rely on to be the very best dog trainer I can be.

This was where I started my Dog Training Career and as an Introduction it was just what I needed, the theory side was explained in really easy terms and there is loads of practical sessions that allow you to build confidence in what you have learnt. A must do course for the new Dog Trainer.

This two day course was a great insight for me into the world of dog training. Before attending this course I was unsure of whether this is what I wanted to do in the future, even after the first day it ticked all the boxes. After attending this course I then went on to booking more courses with the IMDT! Highly recommended!

A great course whether you are thinking about doing dog training, just starting out, or have been training a while and want to work towards your accreditation. After a huge amount of research on different courses I decided that the IMDT was for me. I started with this course, the four day course and the assessment were completed shortly afterwards and 18 months later my business has grown to the point that I am looking at taking on staff who will also start their training with this course.

This course gave me the motivation and know how to bite the bullet and get out there! I now have my own dog training business which is growing well. There's a lot packed into this course from business set up and legal information to learning theory and teaching skills. If your considering a career in dog training, this is the best course to get you on your way. It also contributes to the OCN Gateway qualification.

Great course. I went along as a concerned puppy owner who couldn't find a decent puppy class nearby and came away hooked on training - so much so I have started my own dog training business

The 2-day course is the perfect jumping off place for those considering a job in dog training. Steve gives you a great foundation that you will continue to reference as you move forward. And if you're lucky... you'll get to meet Pablo!

I was desperate to work with dogs when I found Imdt 2 day dog trainer course and I am so glad I made the 3 hour journey to attend it as it was life changing, without the support and education of Imdt id never have got my dream job of working as a behaviourist in a rescue shelter, I cannot recommend this course enough!!

I'd previously studied dog behaviour and training with another provider, but the IMDT offer what I couldn't find elsewhere - a balance of valuable, practical, hands-on learning underpinned with sound behavioural expertise. This course provides a solid foundation to inspire and build confidence. Thoroughly recommend it to anyone wondering if a career in dog training is for them.

I signed up for this course to find out if life as a dog trainer was for me. I left knowing that it was and that I had found the organisation that would help me make it happen. It's amazing how much can be learnt in two days and it gives an incredible foundation on which to carry on learning.

This is a very informative course which covers a broad selection of canine related subjects that serve as a tempting taster for other IMDT courses! I throughly enjoyed this course and would highly recommend it to anyone interested in working with dogs in any field!

I spent ages researching courses, qualifications and where to start, funding the IMDT was fantastic, honestly wasn't 100% sure to start with but never looked back since the 2-day. I'm now a full member and planning more courses for my continued personal development

I could not recommend this course highly enough. I learnt so much from the two days it changed the way I look at dogs completely (in a good way) it was a great starting point for my career as a dog trainer. But beware once you have done this course you will want to do them all
