I found this course the best out of all 3. The course was fun and with plenty of new skills. Jamie is passionate and knowledgeable about what he delivers. Always happy to support his students with problem solving and tips on how to plan and implement class plans and workshops. Videos are clear and concise. A brilliant course which motivates me and cannot wait to put this into practice and start thinking about trials. I am very proud to be part of UKSD as an instructor. Thank you Jamie for delivering such a brilliant course,

If you enjoyed the Bronze and Silver Instructor courses you are going to love the Gold. Such a fun course, we all had an absolute blast, both dogs and humans. The course was delivered in the usual Jamie style, with lots of fun practical exercises as well as theory, video tutorials and a lovely shiny Gold Instructors handbook. I would highly recommend this course, worth every penny.
I absolutely loved this course - best of all of them! Highly recommend to anyone who has already completed the bronze and silver instructor courses. Jamie is an amazing instructor and very knowledgeable so you will learn not only the key elements of the gold level courses and workshops but also top tips and problem solving ideas too. Can't wait to start my gold classes already! Thank you for such a great course!

Have just completed the GOLD instructors course and in true UK Sniffer dog style it was amazing. I come away buzzing from all the courses but this one was definitely one of the best. As always, content delivered in perfect balance of theory and practical with a fun and friendly approach.
Jamie's passion and enthusiasm is reflected in the whole course. Always encouraging and motivational.
Far exceeded what I was expecting from GOLD level and so excited to teach this level.
Thank you team UKSD, as we all know behind every man theres a great woman, thank you also to Gemma. 😊
