How does it work?

In this section we would like to explain to you what you can expect when you order Decoy workshop. Ofcourse we will walk you through it every step of the way. 
We discuss your needs

During a phone call we discuss what it is you want. This will be the basis for the workshop we will give for you. It's possible we ask questions like: "How many people will be attending?", "What will be the location?", "How many days would you like?", questions about your budget and your overall goals with the seminar.

We make a plan
After our first conversation we will come up with a proposal for your seminar.
We plan a date
If you like our proposal we'll plan the date of the seminar.

This is the date your seminar will occur. In general, the duration of a Decoy workshop is 2/3 days, the level can be classified from 3 to 5 stars.

What you get?

Below you can see what results we’ll try to achieve. This by all means isn’t an exhausting list, but it will give you a broad idea.

This seminar is intended for everyone because there are never enough helpers.

During this seminar you will learn to make a dog better or even better than it already is, the saying “the helper makes the dog” will be called a lot here.

You will learn to turn a moderate dog into a good strong dog and to turn a bite with 2 teeth into a full bite.


Absorbing a dog bite, placing the dog in the right place and how to keep your energy during the long exercises.

We will also teach you to work with your heart, often we see decoys who do it because they have to, not because they like it.

Learning to distribute your energy over the many exercises is essential for delivering good work.

You will learn to deal with criticism, often positively and constructively.

The best trainers are standing along the line, they always find something from other people’s work.

It’s up to you to put this aside and deliver good work as usual.

We’ll teach you how.
