Detection - group classes

During the group classes that consist of a maximum of four dogs, you work on the basics of detection training. The group classes are very suitabel for everyone who has no or little experience in detection training. Because four dogs are in the training area at the same time, you can only enter the group classes with a dog that is relaxed around other dogs. If your dog is easily frustrated, reactive towards other dogs or if he barks easily, private lessons are more suitable.

 

All of our classes are held in our training facility in Hillegom. See the calendar for an overview of all starting dates. Do you have a question about the courses? Please send an e-mail to info@argosscentworkacademy.nl
