Seminars & Workshops

K9BRATS hosts seminars and workshops on dog related subjects every year. These include practical handling workshops in various disciplines (primarily agility, but we have also hosted rally, gundog training and tracking workshops, etc.) with the top trainers in their field. We also offer occasional seminars on dog related subjects which are suitable for anyone wishing to know more about dog training and/or canine behaviour or for the continuing professional development of those already working in the field. See below for upcoming seminars and workshops. Please note: some of our workshops are only available to our own club members

K9BRATS partner Kate Reevell also lectures on a variety of dog training and behaviour subjects and is sometimes available for talks and seminars. Kate has studied canine behaviour to Masters level and is a visiting lecturer on the Harper Adams University Animal Behaviour and Welfare degree course. She has also lectured for Liverpool John Moores University and for the Kennel Club Accredited Instructors Scheme, both at Crufts and at their annual Try Out, Take In and Teach weekend.
