Teaching RC live and online all over the world since about 10 years taught me a lot how to adapt the best to each and every dog, and how to be effective with lower number of repetations. I have been working with lot of different breeds over the last 17 years training RC (Pyrshep, Croatian Sheepdog, Mudi, Malinois, Border collie, Sheltie, Working cocker, Mix breeds, etc.).
This RENEWED class is providing you with tons of tips so you can help your best friend the easiest way through the amazing journey of running contacts!

“And it was a day, we decided to learn the Running Contacts, and it was a day that we signed up in your online course.
They were days, after days of practice, of disappointments, I go home sad because I did not do well, but got your corrections and began the days of joy.
I had other sad days, but came corrections and solutions again and so were progress, until one day, Tayler, my puppy, began to understand everything, to give me satisfaction, taking the Contact Running as a game, something he enjoys doing.
Zsuzsa Veres, thanks for your quick responses to each of my doubts, to make your students feel that you really have us in mind that you want us to we progress.

“Well, it’s finally here! Our graduation video! We started as a trouble team. I was frustated with my privious atempt to teach him RC and he was a young dog who lost his confidence and got confused in that process. 5 months later, we have bulit knowlegde and growed confidence, trought foundation exercises, a little bit every lesson. We still have a lot to work on, it’s just the beggining, but it was so much fun!! We worked on dog walk and latter on aframe, foccus for the MM (oh God, we really worked on this one!), undertanding of the reward system, different entries and exits, handling moves, and now, we are going to focus on directionals. I really learned to celebrate every small success and to trust my work and my dog working ethics. Zsuzsa, I don’t know how many times I have already thanked you, but here I am again. Without your patience, answers and corrections, we couldn’t have done it. Thank you for all!”
Gabriela Almeida, Brasil

“You can‘t believe how happy we are!
We thank you much for your super great course, you are the best RC coach ever 🙂 We had a lot of frustrations before doing Running Contacts with other methods. We almost thought we would never reach this state. So please, grab a glass of wine, whiskey, or a piece of chocolate, or some other thing you like and enjoy your success”
