Cooperative Care In Practice - a relaxing, joyful and enriching experience for all! 

Practical training with 6 dog/handler teams, where the attending dog teams will be coached by Eva in their cooperative care training, and at the same time function as demo dogs for the class.

During the workshop we’ll put the knowledge from the seminar days into practice! Attendees get to follow along as Eva coaches the attending teams. The training will be individualized and focus on the needs of each team, which means that attendees will get to observe a wide range of challenges and solutions within the realm of cooperative care.  Most of the training in the workshop will happen individually, but there might also be moments when several teams are practicing simultaneously.
