Group learning camps
*Reactive Rover Camp is now full, but you can get on the waitlist for the next one
I am so excited to announce that I will be running some new fun camps this spring and summer that will help you build a strong foundation with your dog based on cooperation, connection and communication and this leads to the most important thing in any relationship and that is trust. When your dog trusts you, life becomes so much simpler and you get to enjoy life’s challenges instead of struggling with them.
My approach is based in science but isnt based on training your dog to do repetitive commands. Instead we focus on creating a partnership with you and your dog so you can communicate together in the real world in meaningful ways that lead to good habits and real behaviour change.
“All behaviour is communication and it starts with whispers. Through understanding your dogs whispers and their core needs, you will learn to create a strong partnership with your dog.
No matter what your breed or behaviour struggle. Learning to understand your dog is at the core of the issue! Your dog doesn't need more training, better treats or toys to learn to be ‘better behaved’, they just need to be listened to and thats exactly what you will learn how to do” - Marika Koncek (Bertram)
To read more about my philosophy and how I work with my students head to:
Below is a list of the camps being offered, these will be small groups so you can get the attention you need. Only the ones that have enough interest will run.
All camps will include a follow up email with links to demos of practical elements covered in class as well as reading and resources and discounts to follow up coaching sessions.

The camp is designed to build your confidence working together with your dog in a way that feels safe and is fun for both of you.
