Course Notes

What people are saying

Great training ideas - we keep going back to the different sections to brush up on the way to train our dog.

- Vaughan Allcock

Steve's ability to explain a dog's point of view and instruct in a way that I can relate to. Everything is clear, concise and easy to take away and use.

- Karen Head

Amazing, I bought this last week and have it forever to go back to...who needs stressful puppy training classes when all you need is to gain trust and learn your dog's language and behaviours. My puppy has come on leaps and bounds and loose lead walks perfectly now...just gotta keep working on the recall.

- Rebecca Adams

Course is amazing. The different chapters enable me to go into the sessions I need to re visit in more detail when the puppy arrives. Steve uses amazing techniques and shows you how to train your dogs using all different types of breeds so it reinforces learning. Best thing I've purchased to enable me to give my puppy the best start in life. Thank you Steve. I now feel so much more confident.

- Mrs Thomas

I've tried it with my new puppy and she responds extremely well to all the course guidance, I can't recommend it highly enough, it's a master class. Very happy with the results and they are far quicker than I could ever have imagined.

- Tony Meeke

The lessons are clear and simple. I love his approach to dogs as your best friend. I love seeing the lessons in action. Learn quicker by seeing an example than reading. Besides all that it's entertaining to watch!

- Tanja

I adored the course and continue to reap the benefits from Steve Mann's simple, clear and wonderfully positive dog training course.

- Melissa F

Quality content delivered by expert speaker.

- S Jaeger

Steve explains how dogs learn in an easy to understand manner and so far, following his training advice I'm getting positive results with my 3 month old puppy.

- Vanessa

Informative, good instruction and positive training. Breakdown of training into short videos is great too, to practice and pick up again.
