Requirements for handlers
We are dedicated to providing an enriching and challenging experience, and as such, we have certain participation requirements. These include:
Completion of an online theoretical course before the camp, tailored to the specific level of certification you’re aiming for. For example, if you’re striving for the Visiting Team certification, you would need to complete the corresponding online course before attending the camp.
Proficiency in English at a communicative level is necessary for participation.
For those aiming for the Educational or Therapeutic Team levels, there are additional prerequisites. These include possessing relevant education, competencies or experience in fields such as education, psychology, caregiving, therapy, physiotherapy, or medicine.
For the Visiting Team level, while specialized education is not mandatory, it is highly welcomed.
We offer the option to purchase the required theoretical course separately, and as a camp participant, you will receive a 50% discount on this online course. Upon booking your camp participation, you will receive a discount code to apply to the online course of your choice from our platform.
All these requirements are designed to ensure that each participant can fully benefit from the camp and maintain the high professional standards of our programs.

Requirements for dogs
Basic Obedience: To participate in our sessions, dogs must have a good grasp of basic obedience. This is fundamental to ensuring the safety and productivity of our activities.
Age Requirement: If you are aiming to certify your team, your dog must be at least two years old on the day of the examination.
PADA Test: For those looking to certify their team, passing the PADA test is a requisite. You can undertake the PADA test at the start of the camp (the test is included in the camp fee).
If you’re joining for developmental training only (without examination and certification), there are no specific age or PADA test requirements.
These requirements are crucial to ensure a harmonious and effective learning environment for all participants and their canine partners.
“After successfully passing the practical examination, we award an International Professional Certificate, accompanied by a supplement detailing the qualifications of the team.
We issue these documents in English. This makes our certification internationally recognizable and ensures that your skills and qualifications can be understood by professionals across the globe.”
