Our target audience is broad for this seminar:

  • Dog professionals who want evidence-based and objective information, not hear-say and opinion.
  • Motivated HR dog owners in need of clarification and more detailed information about the law change.
  • Worried owners of not-High Risk Dogs, who want a realistic, data-based picture of the risks rather than fear-mongering or trivialising.
