How does it work?

In this section we would like to explain to you what you can expect when you order Dutch working dog Seminar. 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 KNPV / working dog seminar is 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.

The New Way of Training of the KNPV is a non-violent way of training. This way you can train a dog without unlawful tools and methods.

Dutch dogs are known world wide. The KNPV is providing the best dogs all over the world. Using our decades of knowledge, you’ll get a piece of it. The KNPV is known for its hard practical attacks, looking for people, objects, jumping & swimming.

During this seminar you will learn how to train a dog from puppy to working dog in order to be successful within our sport. We also teach them what good and bad qualities are and how to recognize and solve them. You will learn how to use the dog’s nose when searching and tracking, how to teach a steady bite and how to follow correctly on and off a leash. Also on the bike.
