Steve Austins’ Dangerous Dog Assessment and Handling Workshop

You can host your own full day workshop at your premises, or you can attend one of our workshops.

This full day course provides participants with instruction and hands on learning to identify the language of canine aggression and the appropriate responses to avoid or minimise injuries. Participants will experience the use of personal protection equipment and be offered an opportunity to experience a dog bite from a trained dog on a protective sleeve.

The course can be conducted at your premises at a time convenient to you. Get a group together or talk with your manager to arrange work colleagues to individualise a course for your specific needs.

These courses are in high demand and it is recommended to book well in advance. Steve conducts this course throughout Australia.

Travelling costs are applicable outside of Sydney. Investment – $1750 + gst
