Mandatory Courses

Certificate of expertise (SKN)

From September the 1st 2008 there is a compulsory Dog ownership training course for all dog owners: New dog owners who have never had a dog before complete a theory and practical course. Owners with previous experience of owning a dog only have to complete the practical part. For our customers who are enrolled in the compulsory Canton Zürich course or the everyday course, the price of the practical component of the ‘Certificate of expertise’ is included.

Course content:

The course is tailored to suit your individual needs. We take into account what your dog already knows and has learnt.

On request we also offer individual coaching.
