From chasing other animals to intensely tracking a trail, aggressively guarding a resource or scavenging food at any opportunity, ”prey drive” is an umbrella term used to describe many common challenges that pet dog owners face. However, when we take the time to pick apart the various stages and motives behind this natural behaviour, it becomes easier to work with our dogs towards training success…

In this seminar style event, Harlie aims to immerse and educate dog guardians in seeing the world from their dog’s prospective. By understanding predation and how canines have evolved, we can help today’s dog rehearse what individually feels good to them in a safe and structured manner.

Topics include but are not limited to:

✅  Common challenges pet dog owners face 
✅  What, how, why and when a dog shifts into prey drive
✅  Behaviour: how we can train with instinct and not against it
✅  Dogs & dopamine (what does the science suggest?)
✅  Breed and genetically predisposed behaviours (tracking/ chasing/ herding/ resource guarding etc)

Please note: this seminar will be a human only event so please leave your dogs at home. 

When? Date announced soon…

Where? At our training room: Sloterweg 675, Amsterdam

So, you think your dog has a keen sense of smell? Teach your dog to detect! Scent work is a game changer and is becoming increasingly popular within the dog training industry.

Having successfully passed her dog detection handler course in England, Harlie is more eager than ever to get owners working WITH their dogs to share the benefits and value that scent work brings. It’s a team exercise that requires communication and understanding from both ends of the leash and it’s FUN for canines and humans alike!

During this workshop we aim to address:

✅  Motivation and methodology
✅  Selecting and sourcing the scent
✅  Creating confidence and finding focus
✅  Working as one with your dog

Cost: €250.00* per combination of one dog and one handler. (Price includes 21% BTW, refreshments and a mini scent kit.)

Harlie (Founder and Dog Behaviourist at Nero Dog Training) shares her valuable approach to training dogs and journey to success in this special, one-off event! This seminar is ideal for the dog enthusiast or those thinking about pursuing a career with dogs.
A note from Harlie:
The ‘Underdog to wonderdog: our story’ seminar is one of a kind and based on my beginnings as a 22 year British girl who moved to Amsterdam seeking something new.
I pledge to share my story, tacit knowledge, dog training strategies, taboo topics and the nitty gritty of the best job in the world. From desperately seeking help with my own rescue dog to being voted “Best Dog Training Service of the Year 21/22.” I’ve transformed my life and career thanks to an unlikely yet magical muse: a large German Shepherd named Nero.
I’ve been bombarded with enquires asking to share wisdom, light and direction on the path to becoming a professional dog trainer. Working with dogs is an instinctual art and requires much knowledge and skill in many fields to be successful. This is I wish I’d known before I started working with dogs and my secrets to success!
My journey is my own and you are free to choose yours. Don’t let any dog tell you otherwise! 
See ya soon, wags and woofs,
Harlie x
