Let me begin by saying "WOW!" and thanks heaps!!! The Von Forell Melbourne Obedience Training Seminar was a wake up call that I was wasn't expecting.
By John V. McIntosh
I was very impressed with the timely and sensitive use of Clickers and Remote Training Collars to enhance a dog’s engagement and response with the handler in the Command Training process.
By Don & Jenneane Ninness
We came away with a greater understanding of what motivates our dog and what we need to do in order to get the best from him as well as do the best for him!
By Sally Ferguson
All of my questions were answered eagerly and with a wealth of knowledge, and I was made to feel more like family than a student.

The ability you have to read a dog is outstanding and something that has obviously taken you years to master at such a level. You had everyone in the room captivated when you presented the theory side which amongst dog enthusiast is not always easy.
By Ian Marr - GSDC of WA President
The knowledge that you passed on to us will be of great benefit whether it is used in the show or obedience field.
By Cathi Windus
The methods in the "Precision Tracking" book make a lot of sense, and are easy to communicate to the dog. In Kris's book, he covers teaching a dog to "track" human scent on the ground and on the article. This creates a reliable tracking dog.
By Kylie Bright
I must say though that now when I see you work Kris you have an amazing sensitivity to your training and an ability to translate and pass on what you see and feel through the dog. It made me tear up to see you working those pups....
By Chris Wyrewenaden
Kris' workshop has changed my whole perspective on breeding, training and raising dogs. He has so much knowledge and he clearly answers any questions you throw at him without hesitation.
By Rod and Trish Humphries
Once in a lifetime (if you are lucky).. a person can walk into your life and change your outlook and totally open your eyes to a whole new perspective… I was fortunate enough to experience this at this weekend’s training seminar in Perth.
By Heather Barron
Kris' professional presentation was extremely thought-provoking and I came away from the weekend with a greater perception of what makes our dogs tick and dog training in general.
By Pat Jones
Kris is an exceptional lecturer with his wealth of knowledge & experiences & would highly recommend anyone involved in dog training no matter what level or type of dog training or dog owners to attend one of his workshops in the future.
By Melanie Cuomo
I have been in dozens of equestrian clinics and training days. From this experience I can assure you that Kris teaches at the level of the very best highly intuitive coaches.
By Alan McKendry
We could all see how much more our dogs developed under Kris's expert handling and guidance, it was great for him to teach us how to read the dogs and not to push them to far to bring out the fear and avoidance factors.
By Seth Pywell Canine Education & Training
During the practical demonstrations Kris coached up to 7 decoys. By the end of the weekend they had all improved and grown in their ability to read behavior, reward behavior and understand key motivators behind all the behavior.
By Sharon and Alexandra Lazidis
I'm writing to tell you what a fantastic experience this two day workshop has been for us - a real eye-opener. Our understanding about the nature and training requirements for protection / working dogs has taken a massive leap forward.
By Kim Rance
One weekend with Kris is not enough, so much to learn in so little time. Kris has a wealth of information that really needs to be absorbed over time and fully understood to allow all handlers and decoys a chance to put into practice all they learn.
By Iacovos Iacovou
He teaches you how to "read" your dog and be able to react and counter accordingly in order to not damage your dogs character or associations.
By Loz Bezzina
All of Kris's decoy work was timed to perfection and precise. His training tactics and methods were something that I had not seen anyone employ here in this country before.
By Bruno Grutzner
The fact that the dogs that participated, did not belong to Kris and he had never worked any of them before, underlined and proved Kris’s methods work.
By Stephen William
Every time I am with Kris I walk away with a small ingot of Gold. On a scale of 1 to 10 I would have to rate the whole weekend as a nine...to get ten it would have to go for another day! Kris's seminars are awesome.

I attended Kris’ seminar in Dural NSW, where I learnt more over a period of 48hrs than I did in about 12 months of researching the Internet.
By Dimitri Kefallinos
It was a pleasure meeting you in person and seeing you in action, the way you handled the dogs was beautiful your experience is phenomenal.

That is exactly what you delivered. Hendrix has such a wonderful temperament and is extremely healthy and happy. He does not scare at anything and you can tell what a great start he had with you and your family.
By Peter Bailey
I can also report she has strong pigment, her body structure is good for her age, very feminine, her front and rear angulations and pasterns are good as are her feet, chest and top-line and her dentition is perfect.
By Ursula Saba - German Shepherd Dog Club Member
Most importantly, Kris’ concepts aimed to massively improve your relationship and respect and also increase your dog’s cooperation and its environmental perception.
By Stephen Williams - Newcastle Australia
I have attended many seminars on working dogs over the years and can say without a doubt that this two day workshop was the best by far. The presentation of the theory part was first class. I witnessed some of the best obedience I have ever seen.
By Lindsay Taylor Australia
Thanks to your teaching methods, plain language approach along with some superb practical demonstrations I found I had no trouble absorbing all the information you provided
By Ivan Kezurer www.dogmania.com.au
I have been involved with dogs and dog training for many years, I must admit that I believe that I learnt more on this weekend than in my previous 15 years of working with dogs.
