Nepopo®️ Seminar | Perth | July 2023

Another NePoPo theory seminar under our belt. This is a seminar designed for dog trainers, those hoping to become dog trainers, and those simply thirsty for knowledge. It was a tough, challenging, but brilliant week. Everyone in attendance was engaged, asked intuitive questions, and worked very hard to ensure the seminar was absolutely successful. We covered the theory of dog training, including learning theory and ethology with a deep dive into NePoPo and the NePoPo language. To say the seminar was confronting would be an understatement. All participants were thoroughly challenged and left mentally fatigued, as did I. They were stretched and many rose well above their own expectations.

Connect through Play Melbourne | April 2023

We held our first Connect Through Play Seminar for 2023 in Melbourne. It was a great success! We shared our knowledge with dog enthusiasts from many walks of life. Some were just trying to learn how to play with their dogs better, others were professionals obtaining ideas for their programs and others were dog trainers looking for more tools for their training tool boxes. It was a thoroughly enjoyable weekend. All participants were engaged and came with open minds and great attitudes. People who attended without dogs reported to be extremely happy with the knowledge they gained from watching others play. The theory and concepts introduced on the first morning turned some heads. We introduced some new concepts supported by scientific studies and over thirty years combined experience training dogs. We broke down some barriers, identified some myths, and demystified some tools. We love presenting this seminar! There is nothing better than seeing someone’s dog open up and play for the first time. The joy on the handlers face and evidenced through the dogs body language cannot be beaten. Special thanks to Brad from Canine Services International for opening his doors for us and taking care of the logistics. We couldn’t have made this work without you and really appreciate your assistance! A huge thankyou to all participants for being open and for giving it 100% during the play sessions!
