Community Education

We love sharing our knowledge about animals and how to train them

Seminars & Workshops

Schools, community groups, government agencies, specialist businesses, veterinary practices and accommodation facilities – we are happy to train your staff or tailor a talk or workshop just for you!

Educating our community in the management of their animals is rewarding in many ways and can assist in preventing or helping with behavioural problems in pets.
