What a fascinating 6 days. Everything covered was taught in such a 'user friendly' way. I learned so much to help me improve my dog training skills. Their teaching style suits my learning needs. I'm hooked on these IMDT courses.

I was a bit apprehensive about attending this course with my fairly recent rescue pup thinking that at least one of us might be out of our depth. I needn't have worried, the teaching was fantastic and all questions welcomed, learnt lots and looking forward to the next course



Another fab course from the IMDT. Great content, lovely people. Every time I go on one of these courses I book another one!!



I loved this course. It ticked every box - interesting, diverse, informative and great fun. Do it you won't regret it - the IMDT team do a great job of walking their talk; and this course was all about ensuring the motivation to learn was stimulated and rewarded with good stuff.



I highly recommend this course. Great fun, very informative and I have learned about many different aspects of training and also dog behavior. My advice is if you are thinking about doing it just do it you wont be disappointed.

This was a really enjoyable and action-packed week, with fascinating guest speakers and lots of diverse activities for us to try our hands and paws at. Great to explore so many different areas of the dog world; highly recommended!



Excellent course covering a wide range of topics. In a fun and relaxed setting, both Steve and Alison were amazing hosts throughout, never failing to entertain whilst getting the message across. I can't recommend this course enough. Do it!

Great course, covered a lot of the different corners of the dogs life/training. Loved every minute. I would recommend this course to everyone who wants to learn more about dogs and to think out of the box



An amazing course covering lots of fab areas - all the guest speakers were brilliant and really interesting too and a great mixture! Great spending time with lots of like minded friendly people in a relaxed, educational, motivational way and getting lots and lots of tips, ideas, structural advice and information for doing even more to help dogs. Was personally advised to do the 6 day course but would have liked to have done the 2 and 4 day courses prior but can't wait to do more of the other IMDT courses on offer - especially having had a taster of tracking! A BIG thank you to all! x



What a fantastic course, full of invaluable information and guidance, covering a variety of topics over the 6 days.really motivational and I have returned home with new ideas to put into action! I look forward to seeing everyone soon on another course with IMDT!



fantastic course , would recommend it to anyone who has done the 2 or 4 day IMDT courses. I cannot wait to attend more courses! thank you Team IMDT!

I can't say enough good things about this course. Fast paced and enjoyable, covering not only learning theory in a classroom based set up but also lots and lots of practical sections to enhance your skills as a handler. Just a few of the topics covered were flyball, nosework, agility, tracking, canine massage information talk, all taught by trainers passionate about each subject. Amazing course and well worth attending no matter what stage you are at in your career.
