The School of 
 Canine Science The School of Canine Science is Nando Brown and Jo-Rosie Haffenden. Formally the Head of Training and Head of Behaviour for the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers and the stars of Channel 4 series Rescue Dog to Super Dog. Not content with being ace presenters and offering a tease of topics, the pair decided it was time to work independently and to provide a complete range of innovative courses including superb material, practical application as well packs for participants to take away and work from. 
 EVOLVE: Every participant comes from a place of previous knowledge and experience. The School of Canine Science looks to help participants evolve that is to develop and enhance their existing knowledge into something they can sell professionally. This includes updating old theories with the latest science as well as ensuring participants know all the facts. 
 INSPIRE: Nando and Jo are both extremely exciting and bold presenters known for their work on channel 4 as well as their internationally successful seminars. But the School of Canine Science is also about teaching participants to inspire their clients. Carefully selected exercises and explanations are taught to ensure participants know how to apply the theory and get their clients inspired to work with their dogs.
 THRIVE: The School of Canine Science wants all our students to have evolved knowledge and inspiring practical skills. Ultimately our job is to ensure your business thrives.

what to expect 
 from our Courses PRIOR TO ATTENDANCE: Prior to attendance all participants will receive a pdf booklet (this booklet) with their course details inside. This will include prior reading recommendations (not obligatory) along with practical information such as time, dates, venue information and the food situation. Where possible it will include hotel (dog and non dog) information as well as any health and safety notices regarding handling. The booklet will also include a bio of the tutor as well as a full itinerary of the course. 
 DURING THE SEMINARS, COURSES AND TALKS: A healthy happy cohort is of upmost importance at The School of Canine Science. As such, when teaching theory courses tutors will ensure participants have a comfortable workspace to learn on and continuous access to snacks and water - which we know is pivotal in learning! Digital versions of presentations are emailed 48 hours prior to the course. Tutors also ensure we break at least three times during the learning day to stretch as well as for breaks and food. The tutors also work hard to answer all questions and differentiate within tasks and lessons to ensure that each participant leaves having learnt something new without being overwhelmed. We also (even in the theory courses) usually have our 4 dogs with us to demonstrate training techniques as well as keep the atmosphere light and friendly. 
 AFTERCARE MATERIAL: Too many courses make complete sense at the time but then when you look through your notes afterwards half the material turns to brain sludge. At the School of Canine Science, each participant gets sent a full workbook so they can continue evolving their knowledge and skills afterwards. This includes notes on course material, what to read now references as well as How-To video reminders for practical that has been trained or discussed. 
 Day courses run 10am - 4pm. Lunch, snacks, coffee and tea is provided. We aim to ensure all participants are warm, comfortable and happy too. We ensure a friendly and non judgmental environment is provided and that there is plenty of opportunity to ask questions and share opinions. We aim to go for our dinner on day one of each course so that all course participants have an opportunity to mingle and network. Try and keep your diary free.

COURSE DETAILS Topic: The Science of Predatory Behaviour Level: Amber/Red (medium - high level aimed at practicing dog trainers and behaviourists) Date: March 7th and 8th 2017 Location: Royal Court Hotel - Tamworth Road, Keresley, Coventry CV7 8JG, Price: £145 for full 2 day course (10am - 4pm) Presenter: Jo-Rosie Haffenden/ Nando Brown About the course: The science of predation is a medium - high level technical behaviour course and is designed for professionals working with or hoping to work with dogs who present with challenging predatory behaviour. More than simply a recall course this two day seminar looks at problems with traffic chasers, bike chasers, hunting behaviour, scenting behaviour as well as the dogs that chase people and other dogs. All dogs have some form of predatory drive - that is to say they all originated from hunters and many of them are still selectively bred to hunt today. We use elements of the predatory motor pattern to get most natural working behaviours such as herding, guarding, tracking, stalking, flushing and biting. However, sometimes these behaviours can get dogs into trouble. From chasing cars, to stalking other dogs or herding children many owners struggle to control their dogs predatory drive. Food: Tea and coffee will be served with snacks as well as lots of water. The hotel can offer lunch or you can bring your own. Socialising and networking: Whilst there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and discuss topics during exercises, networking and socialising isn’t possible during the course of the actual seminar. As such you are all invited to dinner with Jo-Rosie and Nando Brown on the first night of the course. Venue to be confirmed. Dinner will give you the chance to turn the people around you into proper business contacts and to discuss and chat about opinions and backgrounds in more detail.
