My dog can't be left alone, can I still attend the course?
Dogs are worked one at a time and it is important that they are able to be left alone while you are teaching on the instructor course. We would highly recommend you work on this as soon as possible once you are ready to join the course. If you are really concerned you could try to arrange for someone to be with your dog when you are teaching.
If none of the above is possible please get in touch with us to see what else can be done to help.
Do I have to be able to drive?
You can attend the course using any method of transporting you may wish, we would recommend being able to drive to allow you to use different locations when qualified, you would also need to make sure you have somewhere for your dog to be kept safe and out the way while you are teaching.
My dog is not advanced, does this matter?
The instructor course is all about your learning, teaching and coaching skills. Your Mantrailing skills prior to attending the Instructor course is important, however, we will be focussing on you as an Instructor rather than your dogs Mantrailing level.
