“This is a hands-on course with heart and muscle. And breath. Dr. Mark Johnson delivers everything he promises and even more in the way of inspiration. I attended as a non-professional with a biology background and appreciated every lecture/discussion and lab. Mark leads with creativity and enthusiasm but also knows when to let attendees experience the uncertainties inherent in learning curves. He’s great with all animals, four-legged and two.” - Kris Ellingsen, January 2012.See more testimonials from GWR students »
COMPASSIONATE DOG HANDLING COURSE IN MY HOME TOWN – BOZEMAN MT, OCT 15-16, 2011.
Posted on September, 21st 2011
I am excited to announce that we have recently scheduled a non-chemical capture and handling course here in my home town of Bozeman, MT near Yellowstone Park. The course will be Oct. 15-16, 2011 at the Western Heritage Inn in Bozeman.
My apologies for this late notice but it became a relatively informal gathering of people who expressed a serious interest in our training courses. Now other people & organizations have decided to join us as well.
This is a dog non-chemical capture and handling course that is essential training for animal control officers, shelter staff, disaster responders, rescue workers responding to hoarding cases/puppy mills, spay/neuter programs, and those rescuing dogs in general. “Compassionate Dog Handling” is not taught anywhere else in the world. Throughout the course we explore how to work in a calm manner and without fighting the dog. Register through our GWR website.
