Dear friends and colleagues,
Due to circumstances surrounding COVID-19 we had to cancel a lot of workshops this year 2020. Because we believe that the individual pleasure we get from our canine sport is subordinate to our national and international health risks and welfare. With the experience from the first half of 2020 and new insights about health and safety regulations we are so happy that we can announce that we are able to re-open some of our workshops in this year 2020! We got so many request from dog trainers all over the world that are so eager to start their training programs.
So yes we are starting up our activities to help our clients to reach new levels in training, learn new skills and get a better understanding about training.
We are working with the organizers to reschedule workshops and seminars next year. This 2021 will be a very special year because ACT! will expend activities and blend together with a very special company so we are able to serve you even better. To everyone please be safe and stay healthy. We hope to see you later in the year!

Workshops are wonderful, interactive platforms to share information and actively put this information into guided practice. Every individual has a different learning style, so we make it a point to use a variety of teaching methods to ensure clarity and understanding. Our workshops are carefully crafted using both a theoretical and practical approach, and are designed around a wide variety of topics.

Our seminars are highly informative and are designed specifically with the human end of the leash in mind. They cover a wide spectrum of advanced animal training topics, and typically range from one day to three days in length.


One-on-one, tailored work with you and your animal. These are highly-focused, information-rich sessions, and will benefit everyone from the novice trainer to the most experienced.


Working in the professional animal training world is demanding. Having a clear set of guidelines and a sound program to follow will allow anyone to reach goals and milestones, all while staying within budget. We carefully assess short and long-term goals and custom-design plans and protocols specific to the individual or group, whether we’re designing a totally new program or refreshing an old one.
