I attended this course and it was amazing. Packed full of interesting and useful information I can not recommend highly enough xx
Just returned from the two day Trainers course. Highly recommended. Informative, entertaining and well planned. Here comes the 4 day !
Was not sure what to expect on the course but i am glad to say it was fab! The 2 days flew in and I left wishing for more! It was really informative and Steve made it fun which for me makes me remember things more! The class was a good size and i met a lot of people with the same love for dogs and all from different areas of dog care or owner. I wish i had managed to book the 4 day that followed straight away but will definitely be booking for next year. If you are thinking about this course, go for it you have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
Great, Steve was great kept the interest and humour up, first classroom I've been in as a 'mature' student that I didn't fall asleep, can't wait for the 4 day course
Fantastic 2 days, lots of information to digest and use, giving fantastic results. Can't wait for my next part !
Great two days full of great advice ,Steve the instructor made the weekend fly by with great advice demos with dog trainers Enjoyable learning ,, roll on 4 day course next year ,,,
Thoroughly enjoyed my weekend, great tutor, great people, great dogs!ć Recommended
Had a fantastic 2 days at Dalkeith ,learned so much, had fun, Mustafa was brilliant, recommend this for anyone serious about dog training or just understand more how your dog behave. Thank you very much Mustafa.
Just finished this course with tutor Mustafa. It was an excellent course that covered a great deal. There was no time wasted and everything was clearly explained at the pace of the learners. Mustafa was a knowledgeable and engaging tutor. I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to work with dogs or even just understand their own dog better.
This course was fun, informative and clarified every aspect of dog training. Our tutor Mustafa was excellent at explaining everything and giving everyone every opportunity to ask questions as we went along. Mustafa explaned everything in order for us to digest and understand very well. The course was very well thought out and I thourghly enjoyed participating in the 2 days. Totally enjoyed talking DOG for 2 days and met lovely people too.
The 2 day Career as a Dog Trainer course at Dalkeith was fantastic, ideal for anyone considering this career path but equally valuable for anyone training their own dog. The course content was covered using a mix of presentation, video clips, live demos with dogs and group discussions, all in an informal relaxed atmosphere. Delivery was excellent, keeping you engaged, and providing plenty opportunity for questions. A lot of information to take in over the 2 days, but course handout provided. If you're considering this course, just book it, you won't regret it.
Definitely lived up to my expectations. Met loads of lovely people too and now I can't wait to do the 4 day practical!
Thank you! - it's been a brilliant 2 days at the Career as a Dog Trainer, got so much out of it and met some lovely people and two superstar spaniels!
Thanks for a really great 2 days. Fun learning with some excellent explanations that really helped clarify the more tricky bits ūüėČ would have no hesitation in recommending this course
Thank you so very much for the brilliant 2 day training in Scotland, and special thanks to our instructor Mustafa Ozmus for making it so engaging and enjoyable!! I'm really looking forward to the 4 day training in October and the assessment.
Great 2 day course in Scotland, learning more about methods of training dogs from either a dog owners prospective or as a trainer, I got some really useful training techniques to use on my own dogs. Mustafa delivered the course with easy to understand terminology, fun practicalís and got the whole class involved. Would recommend the course.
Fantastic weekend. Steve is a great educator and really keeps things moving and interesting. You will gain a lot from it whether you have trained for years or are just at the thinking about it stage.
Best course well worth while if you work with dogs. Can't wait for the four days next year. Steve is a good clear easy to understand instructor. Thanks for a fantastic two days.
Excellent course. I gained a lot of useful insights and knowledge to help me in training my own two dogs. Steve is an entertaining presenter who is very generous in passing on what he has learned from many years working with dogs in many different environments. It was great to meet and speak to other dog owners and trainers over the two days and to hear about their experiences as well.
Absolutely amazing course! A must for anyone even considering becoming a dog trainer. Steve is so entertaining and a real fountain of knowledge. You will not regret booking on to this course. In fact, you'll instantly book more :) 10/10!
Excellent!!! Great two days very informative, Steve's delivery was fantastic. Look forward to my next course!
Great day, great course, great tutor! Steve is very knowledgable of course but his presentation and delivery are fantastic. He makes it really easy to understand and makes it fun at the same time. Can't wait for my next course
Great 2 days ! Steve is entertaining ,puts the information in a fun way and you learn without realising it .Can recommend it and am going to do the 4 day course next year
VERY GOOD! It was super interesting and motivational, Steve is the MANn. Wide spectrum on different topics, none of it not useful. Great way to start your studies in dog behavior area, or even just for a more interested owner on how dog training works. ;)
Really enjoyed this course. I have been to so many in the past, but this was so refreshing and fun. I will be doing more IMDT courses in the future. And one day be a full member hopefully. Be great to have one of the courses in the Highland area of Scotland too one day. Thank you very much Steve.
Fantastic course. I attended this course uncertain as to whether or not a career as a dog trainer was the right course for me as i have my own dog walking business. Two days later I left feeling inspired and full of new ideas,
A very enjoyable, informative course. Steve Mann is a great speaker who makes concepts easy to understand. I enjoyed the practical demonstations. I learned loads thanks and am keen to learn and do more.
Brilliant course! All the information was put across in a fun, engaging way. Fantastic as a starting point for those just entering the world of dog training but also great as a refresher for those who have been working with dogs for a while. You won't regret doing this course.
Had a really great time on the 1st course up here in Scotland. Steve is a fantastic and very knowledgeable trainer, who manages to make it all seem so easy. I'm not involved in any direct work with dogs, just an owner, but it has inspired me to do more. Roll on the 4 day course in October!
I attended the 2 day course with Steve Mann in Scotland, very informative funny man. The course was easy to follow and Steve explained the bits that people weren't getting as many times as was needed. I can't wait for the 4 day course in October. Thank you imdt.
Brilliant course, full of great information presented in an easy to understand, fun way. Highly recommend for anyone thinking of being a dog trainer or to affirm your ongoing knowledge.
A very interesting and informative course. Steve runs the course in a relaxed, fun matter which allowed me to clarify the knowledge I already had and easily learn the parts I didn't know. A great source of information for anyone starting out and reminder for those already on the dog training career path.
Fantastic! Given me the ability to grow my business and feel more confident with canine behaviour and training. Would thoroughly recommend it to all. Steve is a great tutor and made the 2 days both fun and informative.
A really interesting and engaging course packed full of useful information and laughs. The 2 days flew by. A great starting point for canine professionals and dog owners looking to further their understanding of dog training.
