Module K9DI-1 - K9DI-3 on top of modules K9DH-1 - K9DH-4 together form the fundament of our K9 Detection Instructor Course, especially focussed on K9 Detection Sport.

 We give combinations of courses, seminars or lectures at our facility or on other locations upon request. 

 We also offer correspondence (online) courses to those who wish to learn the theory & practice without traveling away from home, yet are dedicated to learning the art and craft of (scent) dog training. These courses are not a substitute for the practical experience gained through our hands-on modules, though they are designed to be as thorough as possible.
