Our very own OneMind Dogs coach Niki Drage is available to present OneMind Dogs seminars around Australia and internationally. A OneMind Dogs seminar will include access to a pre-seminar information and online training package for free at www.oneminddogs.com for all participants and an exciting seminar full of fun, passion and connection with your dog! There may even be some prizes on offer from our great sponsors!
Niki has owned, trained and worked with dogs of all shapes, sizes and temperaments so she has enough experience to help dogs and handlers of any kind. She also has experience instructing people with disability and physical restriction. OneMind Dogs is very adaptable to any kind of person or dog!
The OneMind Dogs method is not just about our well known handling techniques – it is a whole philosophy about getting connected with your dog and understanding how dogs naturally respond to human body language, there are no drills or repetitive exercises, just natural communication. This is a big change for many people new to OneMind Dogs so please be patient and come with an open mind, ready to learn and see things from your dog’s perspective!
