During this educational clinic participants will learn a 10 step training program, focussing on all aspects of training to ensure owners get the most out of their dog. Along with these fantastic skills, the importance of identifying any incorrect or bad behaviour displayed by your dog and how to correct the behaviour.

Understanding mob structure and the different ways livestock move is a key part to farm work, during this clinic the knowledge of this specific skill as well as how to move livestock i a controlled manner is also taught.
