Just love Dr Dunbar and his methods

Chantelle Smit, ZA

I very much enjoyed learning of Dr Dunbar's positive reinforcement methods for training puppies and older dogs. This course was extremely helpful given that I have recently taken on a dog and that I provide puppy classes at my place of work. There is a wealth of information and literature within this course that was excellent to have access to. I would recommend this very highly to anyone. Thank you

Joanne Carr, GB

I thoroughly enjoyed the puppy course and although I have reared many pups it gave some different points in a lot of aspects. It is good to see things through other peoples eyes as this broadens your ability to pass knowledge on to others. I have recommended the course to others.

Gail Thompson, GB

Fantastic course with great videos and booklets for support. Would recommend to anyone that wants to train their dog properly without instilling fear into the dog to get it to do what you want it to do. Very informative and a fantastic way to build bonds as training goes along through each stage of the dogs life.


Found this course to be very informative. Would highly recommend it.
