AUTUMN CLASS started 10th of September – WORKING places FULL, AUDITING still possible.

NEW (WINTER) CLASS will start on 30th of January 2020. REGISTRATION will open on 3rd of January 2020.

I didn’t plan to open an on-line class specifically for RC until recently (also because you already have many great RC classes “on the market” to choose from). But in the last year, I got so many requests to train (or re-train) RC, that I changed my mind, in order to make it easier for everybody (and also to free again the places in private lessons).

You will see in the trailer what this RC class is about. I also gathered videos from some of my student’s trainings, to show you what I believe in when teaching RC. Many times people ask me which method I use, but it is a bit hard to answer, since I have never attended any RC class and I am not really familiar with other trainer’s methods (except from what I see in their public videos of course).

This RC class is the combination of SHAPING, TARGETING and specially ADAPTING RC training to every INDIVIDUAL dog, which I find really important (criteria, advices and EXERCISES in the class, when training Jack Russel or BC are not the same with me).

First and really important thing we do in the class, is generalise the behaviour as much as possible on the “ground” with TARGET TRAINING (away from the actual obstacles). Correct target training really helps you improve dog’s understanding before even starting with DW training and at the same time, the number of repetitions needed on the DW, is much lower because of that (and also healthier for dog’s body/joints). Running contacts depend so much on understanding and to proof them, you do not need to train DW after DW after DW…

Another important thing that compliments this RC class training is, using both, “FOOD MACHINE” and TOY, from beginning – to GENERALISE the behaviour to maximum already in early stages and to get the best from every dog, regardless if he is more toy or food oriented.

And probably the most important part of any RC training is ADAPTING the class/method to every individual dog, based on his CHARACTER, SIZE, PHYSICAL ABILITIES,… Individual differences between dogs play a huge role when choosing the optimum training for every dog. Because of that, you have many different types of exercises in this class, which will help you get the best from every dog.

Last but not least, I also put a lot of attention to safety (you get that when you train RC with malinois) and that is another reason why I do so many RC foundations away from full DW.

I have experiences of training RC for the past 15 years – all my dogs successfully had running contacts from beginning (Cavalier King Charles, Papillons, Pumis and Malinois).


  • starts on: 10th of September 2019 (REGISTRATION is OPEN)
  • duration: at least 4 months (depends how many days I am away on seminars and I cannot check classrooms- all those days are added at the end)
  • during the class, WORKING teams can post unlimited numbers of videos and questions and AUDITORS can see all videos and ask questions (but they cannot post their own videos and get individual feedback)
  • price: WORKING team: 270 €, AUDITOR: 160 €

APPROPRIATE for: dogs from 10 months, regardless of (pre)knowledge (you can join with a bit younger dog, because so many training is done on the “ground”, but in that case, you will not be able to get to full DW height during the class)

EQUIPMENT needed: for the first 2 months, you need to have a target, “food machine”, toy and access to a (preferably thinner) plank. After 2 months, you also need the access to the DW.

So many foundations for RC can be done away from the DW or jumps 😀 Since I get many questions about the "method" I use in my RC class, here is one small part of "ground" training from one of my students. Besides using both, MM and toy, from beginning (to generalise the behaviour and to get the best from every dog, regardless if he is more toy or food oriented), and adapting the class to every individual dog (based on his character, size, physical abilities,..), there is also one thing I really try to do and that is generalise the behaviour as much as possible away from the actual obstacles, so that whole training process is as "nice" to dog's body (joints) as possible. Running contacts depend so much on understanding and to proof it, you do not need to train DW after DW after DW... :DDue to many requests, entries for the new on-line class will open a bit sooner then I planned (end of May) and new class starts in June 😀

So many foundations for RC can be done away from the DW (and jumps) with correct TRAGET TRAINING. That really improves dog’s understanding before even starting with DW training and at the same time, the number of repetitions needed on the full DW is much lower (and healthier for dog’s joints).
Another example of how much correct TARGET TRAINING can help dog generalise the behaviour of RC. This video is showing a dog, who is for THE FIRST TIME training on a DOG WALK set up! 😀 All the foundations before this training, were either done on the floor (with target) or on a really lowered plank.


Our journey to RC so far ♡ In spring we start with an online RC class with Katarina Podlipnik and here is our graduation video 🤩It was so much fun! Thanks again Katarina!

Y esto es la increíble sensación de venirse arriba y ver que algo estamos haciendo bien 😍

Well by far the most difficult but extremely rewarding thing to teach Vesper, but after many months of work she had her 2nd session sequencing soft DW turns. ❤️ Still a long way to go but happy there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. Thanks Katarina for your continued support and guidance. 🥰
