Dog Training

Kids & Dogs

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.

Kids & Dogs Camps

Kids & Dogs Autumn Camp

with Beatrice Feider

Who for: Kids age 7-12 Date: 30 October-3 November (09.00-12.00 each day except 1 November) Location: Martha & Friends

We start the week with dog anatomy and basic physical and emergency care and then our training team works on dog nutrition, cooking doggie snacks, leash training, trick training, learning about working dogs, and scent work culminating in a big Scent Hunt with the kids and their dogs. Each camp is different to keep the kids learning and growing in their relationship and handling of dogs. Even if you don't have your own dog, we can provide a staff dog so they can still join in on the hands on activities.
