Have you ever marvelled at the way some animal trainers can achieve amazing results in their animals?  Have you ever admired the love of training and dedication displayed by some working or performing animals?  Have you ever wondered what it is that makes some trainers more successful than others?



There is no one element that produces better results.  There are numerous aspects involved in motivating dogs to perform miracles.  Understanding motivational drives in our dogs, better equips us to achieve our dogs’ full potentials.

In this workshop, Steve enthusiastically shares some of his training practices that have brought him success.  He presents his strategies on an objective level, allowing all to understand how they can implement them in their own training applications.

This workshop is suitable for professional, competitive and amateur dog trainers and dog handlers, including Police and Military applications, zoo keepers/trainers and those interested in dog/animal training.

Steve's Motivating Miracles Book

I have written this work book and normally only make available at seminars and workshops. However I have decided to offer it to everyone! “Motivating Miracles” is a work book for the professional K9 trainer or those involved in serious K9 training.

Please understand it is not a ‘Sit-Stay-Drop-Come When Called’ book. It is a book explaining how to motivate your dog to become a better detector dog, a better competition dog, and a better and more motivated dog all round. It has plans and pages to copy so you can set out your own plan for your OWN dog.

The book is used in agencies all around the world and this is its 5th re print. You can order here now via Paypal where you can pay with your credit card or paypal account. Orders will be shipped out directly from our office within 24-48 hours of receipt of your order.
