NERO’S HEROES: CANINE CONFIDENCE COURSE!

 This ULTIMATE canine course is focused on building confidence through play and movement to overcome obstacles. The creative challenges use a variety of every day items to conjure courage, lighten spirits and build trust between dog and handler. Please note: a sense of humour and fair level of fitness are required to participate! Like majority of Nero classes, YOU will be as active as your dog. We are not training the dogs in terms of obedience nor trick training – it’s not that kind of class. Our aim is for dogs and guardians to enjoy something totally different! Expect to experience the brilliance of a bin bag, learn to think outside the box, brave balloons and have a wheely good time! Puns intended, let’s have some FUN!

✅ WHEN? SATURDAY 27TH JANUARY: 11.30AM – 1.30PM

✅ WHERE? Manege De ruif, Sloterweg 675, Amsterdam.

✅ COST? €195 (inclusive of 21% BTW)

✅ SIGN UP: drop an email over to harlie@nerodogtraining.nl  SOLD OUT!

HORSE & HOUND WORKSHOP

Created by Nero Dog Training and Manege De Ruif!
Dogs and horses are both social beings and have co-existed side by side for thousands of years. Nowadays however, canine and equine worlds often collide in a negative manner. Partly due to living in an urban environment, many dogs never have the opportunity to experience the presence of a horse at close capacity. When faced with a horse, this lack of education may result in insecure barking, fearfulness, flight or engaging in predatory behaviours like charging, chasing and biting – all of which are extremely dangerous for the animals and humans involved.
A walk in the woods may present a passing or approaching horse and rider. Perhaps you head to the country for a holiday with your woofer and there are horses in the surrounding fields? Maybe a horse sharing the beach or dunes takes you and your dog by surprise? Our motto of ‘train don’t complain’ supports setting our dogs up for success by working together in real life scenarios and providing both ends of the leash with guidance and the window of opportunity to learn.
For our all new horse and hound workshop, Nero Dog Training has teamed up with Manege De Ruif, a popular riding school and equine centre located close in Amsterdam – and where the Nero training room is located! De Ruif is a household name in the Amsterdam area and boasts four decades of dedicated professionalism and expertise and we LOVE being neigh-bours (pun intended!)

️ Various exercises to build focus to handler with distraction

PREDATION SEMINAR: ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR DOG’S PREY DRIVE

From chasing or herding other animals to intensely tracking a trail, aggressively guarding a resource or scavenging food at any opportunity, the umbrella term ”prey drive” is used to describe many common challenges that pet dog owners face. When we take the time to pick apart the various stages behind this natural behaviour, it becomes easier to understand and work with our dogs to address and prevent undesirable behaviours.

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:

✅  What is prey drive?
✅  What does the science suggest?
✅  Common behavioural challenges pet dog owners face (chasing/ herding/ resource guarding etc)
✅  Behaviour: how we can train with instinct and not against it
✅  Breed and genetically predisposed behaviours 

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

When? TBC

Where? At our training room: Sloterweg 675, Amsterdam

*Cost of Seminar: Non-Nero Network member: €150.00* per person (inclusive 21% BTW)* Members of The Nero Network receive a discount: cost of seminar: €125.00 per person (inclusive of 21% BTW)
