I already have a decent base knowledge as a dog trainer, but looking to have more expansive knowledge- learn about agility, nose work, dog sports, and assistance dog training. Does anyone have experience with in-person courses? I have already read multiple books and taken an online course on basic training and aggression, as well as worked with behavioural issues and basic training for quite a few dogs, so a basics course won't do much for me. I have seen good things about Starmark and National K-9, leaning more towards starmark because I would not think you can learn everything you need in 6 weeks, which is the national K-9 timeline. I also don't have the liberty to take 6 months so starmark seems to be the sweet spot. Anyone have experience with this or other dog training courses? I already did a google search and saw reviews but couldn't find anything extensive.
