Re: GOOD practical SKN course (Zürich)

When I was looking for a school I did a lot of Internet searching, found 3 I thought might be OK then wrote to them all asking if I could come and visit to see one of their lessons. Two wrote back almost immediately and said yes by all means just let us know when you are coming and the third eventually came back asking why I wanted to visit first! The third I didn't bother with but went to visit the other two and decided that I liked the way Pascal Groner at Dog Balance conducted her lesson, an adult one but still.
She was very calm, had already organised the field as she needed it, knew the skills and limitations of the 3 dogs in the lesson and gave them work accordingly. At the end everyone had a drink and a chat in the car park where they could ask any questions and discuss any problems they might be having. Eicke and I joined this group for 2 lessons as she was a little wary of older, bigger dogs and we thought it would be good socialisation for her. We were due to start the next Junghund group but unfortunately we have to wait as Eicke has possibly torn a cruciate ligament.
Brain training ideas welcome as we are both bored of just sit, stay, lie and wait.
Good luck!
