Look at just some of the things people are saying about this course:

Nathan Hornby: “I attended Russell’s weekend dog training instruction course. It was informative, interesting and hands-on. I learnt a lot more than expected and a bonus that I didn’t expect is the improvement with training with my own dog – only a week after the course and I’m seeing huge improvements in some areas.
Russell and his team are professional and friendly, as are his dogs. I’d be happy to recommend them for all things dog behaviour and training”.

Ray Churcher: Very enjoyable and informative weekend. Good mix of ‘classroom’ and practical which has helped me get off to a great start in my instructing ambitions. The opportunity to try a bit of actual instructing was great. Many thanks to Russell and his team.

Kim Aitken: “I very recently had the opportunity to attend two weekend courses run by Russell Becque , the first was a Dog Training Instruction course and the second was Identifying, Understanding and Overcoming Basic Canine Behaviour Problems.
I thoroughly enjoyed both of the courses and came away armed with a wealth of information and recommendations which I have already started to put into practice with my own dogs and will be able to draw from when working with dogs in the future.
I would highly recommend attending both of these courses to anyone who owns or works with dogs”.

Lynne Roberts: “The Advance Instructors course. I enjoyed a highly informed training program with excellent content and clear demonstrations on training exercises. There was great variety to this course which will improve my training methods. Thank you to all of Russell’s team and handlers and their dogs for their time over the weekend. A brilliant course”. Lynne Roberts

Gill Devereux: “The weekend course was a really excellent experience. Thank you to all of Russell’s Team of Helpers & Handlers & their dogs for their hospitality. Russell came into his own when demonstrating with his own dogs so that you saw the methods he was using so clearly. There was lots of variety to keep us thinking & a good amount of delegate participation. Discussion was naturally created & there was no wrong or right way to teach a particular discipline. A great weekend”. Gill Devereux

Andrea Bolden: “I’ve recently attended both the Instructor and Canine Behaviour weekend courses. They were both great fun and packed with really useful information. Russell has an outstanding depth of knowledge and is extremely passionate about his area of expertise. The courses combined theory and practice which kept everyone interested through the whole time. 2 days just wasn’t enough!”

Kirsty Taylor: “I have just completed The Weekend Dog Training Instructors course and have had a great time. The course was really interesting throughout and feel I have learnt so much. Russell made the course fun as well as educational and kept us entertained throughout. I think Russell’s knowledge is amazing and can’t wait to go onto the next courses!”

Look at just some of the things people are saying about this course:

Karen Davies: “Thanks so much for such a brilliant insight into dog behaviour. My head is now about to explode with all the new information. Looking forward to being able to give out the correct advice to struggling clients and referring them to you for more serious problems! Looking forward to attending the next one”.

Janie House: “I have attended this course. It was a great course, covering a variety of different issues that are commonly found. There was no one-size-fits-all approach, instead a number of different methods of addressing issues was explored; the course was fully interactive and the delivery very engaging. I thoroughly enjoyed it and learnt a great deal. I would highly recommend the Academy, both for training courses and those needing to address behavioural issues in their own dogs”.

Adrian Cumming: “I attended the course on understanding and overcoming basic canine behaviour problems. Russell gave us a wealth of information in an informed and informative manner. The whole atmosphere was relaxed which together with humour, helped our learning experience. We had practical opportunity with real life cases. I recommend this course to all dog owners and everyone concerned with dog welfare. Thank you Russell and staff”.

Kim Aitken: “I very recently had the opportunity to attend two weekend courses run by Russell Becque , the first was a Dog Training Instruction course and the second was Canine Behaviour Problems.
I thoroughly enjoyed both of the courses and came away armed with a wealth of information and recommendations which I have already started to put into practice with my own dogs and will be able to draw from when working with dogs in the future.
I would highly recommend attending both of these courses to anyone who owns or works with dogs”.

Amanda Edwards: “I have recently attended the Canine Behaviour Course. It is clear to see Russell has spent some time putting together a course which provides an insight into canine behaviour from a personal and a professional view point. There is a lot to go through in the 2 days but Russell ensures his aims are covered, and everyone has the opportunity to ask questions. Loved it. My objectives of attending the course were met and more! Highly recommended”. Amanda Edwards.

Jade Quigley: I have just, this weekend, completed a canine behaviour course with Russell and found it to be extremely interesting, fun and informative. I had already heard of him through work (I am a veterinary receptionist) and am very glad I got the chance to put a face to the name as I can now be more confident in recommending him to my clients. I found him to be very knowledgeable and a genuine dog lover. I would give 6 stars out of 5 if I could and I hope I get the chance to meet him again soon for another course.

Andrea Bolden: “I’ve recently attended both the Instructor and Canine Behaviour weekend courses. They were both great fun and packed with really useful information. Russell has an outstanding depth of knowledge and is extremely passionate about his area of expertise. The courses combined theory and practice which kept everyone interested through the whole time. 2 days just wasn’t enough!”

Jayne Conway: “Russell’s advice was invaluable with the recall problem we were having with our Jack Russell. We now have relaxed and enjoyable walks with him (the dog that is, not Russell) I have been on one of the courses for dogs with behavioural problems and what I learned has been put to extremely good use with the retired greyhounds that I do voluntary work with. I would not hesitate in recommending Russell and his team for any issues, large or small”.

Maria Willison: “I have an interest in all things DOG! Last year I attended Russell’s weekend Instructors course which was great fun and yet very informative. It has really helped me in the classes I take. If you are interested in this area I would 100% recommend this course.
I was so impressed with the above I snapped up the chance to spectate on his behaviour clinic last week. Again it was very informative and I was totally amazed with some of the results that were almost immediate. I have been on a few workshops with different behaviourists over the years and I can honestly say this is one of the best I have been to. Whether you have a dog with a problem or you are interested in Canine behaviour I would definitely recommend this course. Thank you Russell for sharing your knowledge and experience with us”.

Let me start by saying I was sceptical. We adopted a Westie from the RSPCA and brought him into our home with our two Cocker Spaniels. Despite having met on several visits prior to adoption, when we got him home our Westie and male Cocker were at loggerheads. This was vicious fighting to the point that we couldn't have them in the same room together. We discussed with the RSPCA after only 12 hours of having him home and they recommended a few techniques which we followed. The Westie was incredibly aggressive with other dogs as well as our Cocker to the point where we couldn't take him out. It was incredibly stressful and was putting strain on our family. After a week we asked Russell to help us as a last ditch attempt before returning the Westie to the RSPCA as we were not coping. Within 30 minutes of Russell being in our home all three of our dogs were calm and sitting together. Russell took time to understand our concerns and gave us techniques to follow once we were on our own. After only a couple of days we were at the point where all the dogs could be consistently unleashed together in the same room. After only a week we are in a completely different place with the harmonious family we anticipated. We are not out of the woods yet and still need to keep a check on behaviour but Westie is currently attending the weekly classes run by AMCBT and is progressing well. I cannot recommend Russell enough. His knowledge and experience really worked for us and we now have three happy dogs.
