Everything we do at ewas dog life
is very personal. Our aim and goal are like yours - a result you are happy
with and to give you the tools to continue to develop with your dog even
after the course is finished. By working in small groups and one to one
we get the opportunity to develop faster and with a higher level of understanding.
And it allows us to focus on each dog and handler in order to receive
the best results.
