    What participants say

    about our training

    • The school dog training was an extremely enriching experience for me. Not only did it give me valuable knowledge and skills to work with dogs in school environments, but it also enabled me to develop a deeper connection with these wonderful animals. The training was well structured and offered enough practical exercises to apply what I had learned. Working with my dog ​​as a school dog not only boosted my confidence, but also had a positive impact on the students in my class. I really value the school dog training and am grateful for the opportunities it has opened up for me.

    • The school dog training offered a balanced mix of theory and practice, whereby the practical implementation of what was learned was particularly valuable. The observation of lessons with an already trained school dog and its owner was a highlight that helped me to gain confidence in dealing with students and the school dog. The training gave me the necessary skills to work with school dogs and awakened my passion for this special form of teaching. I am very satisfied with the training and would happily recommend it to others.

    • The school dog training was an extremely positive experience that I would like to share. The lecturers were extremely competent and committed. The lectures were well structured and conveyed the necessary knowledge in an understandable way. Particularly worth mentioning was the delicious cake that was served during the breaks - this made the learning atmosphere even more pleasant.

      What I particularly liked was the open and friendly communication with the organizers. They were always approachable and helpful, which helped the participants feel comfortable and well looked after.

      Overall, the school dog training was a completely positive experience that not only provided the necessary knowledge for working with school dogs, but also enriched me on a human level. I am grateful for this experience and can recommend the training with a clear conscience.
