Course Feedback


Thanks for the webinar Steve. Lots of great ideas to revamp my teaching.

Penny Druitt


Superb course and delivered brilliantly and loads of opportunities for Q

Laura McNicholas


A great course really well presented. Lots of super content and exercises. Used several of the exercises already in my classes today to much enjoyment. Happy dogs and happy clients. Thank you.



What a fantastic insight in to how to expand your thinking and training for every dog. I’m a first time puppy owner training to be a dog trainer so this course was perfect for me. Steve was brilliant, engaging and explained everything fully. So many exercises to put in to practice.

Alison Banks


A great course with tons of ideas to take away and apply in classes, 1-2-1s, and with your own dog(s). The information was presented in a clear and engaging way throughout and was supported with helpful videos, some live action demonstrations, and some highly enjoyable/entertaining diagrammatic representations created live via a shared screen - eat your heart out, Tony Hart! :) A packed day that was super enjoyable and provided plenty of food for thought. Thanks so much!



Thanks for a great course...I have already implemented many of the training exercises in my own work. Cheers IMDT



Finally got to watch the man himself! Excellent course and as others have said, delivered with humour throughout. A huge amount of information packed into the day but all taught in a way that makes everything seem super achievable. I went straight home and even applied it to my cats to show my partner the theory....even better I got results within 5 minutes....and so if my cats can get it....any dog you teach will love it!

Joanne Hall


A superbly practical course learning over 50 exercises with heaps of helpful information, hints and tips



Excellent day with lots of ideas and food for thought. Presented with humour. The day moved on at a good pace without feeling too rushed.



Fabulous day, lots of great ideas. I can highly recommend. Plenty of opportunities to ask questions.

This course was great to show how to advance your training methods with great ideas to use and demonstrations shown.



Great course . As ever.... humorous , fun and motivating delivery from Steve . Almost too much of a good thing and furious note taking was to be had . Some real lightbulb moments .



I attended the course in York. Met lots of like minded people and people who are far more experienced and competent than me! The day was overseen by Steve Mann who just makes everything look so easy and logical! Totally enjoyed the day and learned so much! Steve answered all and any questions and the day was just really informative and enjoyable. Thank you Steve!

This was my first IMDT course and won’t be my last! It was excellent. Really enjoyed it and learnt a lot. Steve is great trainer / teacher being very personable and humorous in his delivery of the course. His obvious vast experience ensures clarity and he is also very realistic! Highly recommend.



Steve is so easy to listen to with his passion for dogs shining through! Very much enjoyed and highly recommend 🐾🐾
