Fun and educational

Teach you kids about dogs

If children can gain experience in dealing with dogs and / or grow up with them, this is a wonderful addition for life! However, children have to learn how to approach dogs safely, how to assess the language of a dog and in incremental steps learn to handle and communicate with a dog independently.

We offer different courses for kids & dogs.
