Learn how to understand the dog as a subject. Thát dog, with his or her specific interest, questions, desires to form their own experience. Not only as a new-born-puppy, but throughout a life-time, a life-philosophy, a life-requirement, even in old age.
The Learning Dog Study is an avant-garde study program, continuously integrating modern issues and developments, connected to the difficulty of a society in which the anthropocentric viewpoint is still deeply rooted. This study path allows participants to start recognising the necessary and possible space to preserve quality experiences, to find a way back to their own Animality, and to explore coexistence – beyond speciesism.
Learn how dog learns, as subjects, from an own interest , not stimulated by human, not predefined, but from an interest hidden below many layers of misleading habits and blocking projections. Training, or any form of desired behavior and desired outcome, is deconstructed to makes place for living together, in a reciprocal relationship, where the understanding of the experience of a dog is not a moment of compensation, but a life-philosophy.
Learning Animals indeed breaks with the need to “adapt to society” and give people the possibility to facilitate others – and with that themselves – to go back to a coexistence built on experiencing life. Growing redefining an animal culture of coexistence: An understanding of your own world, to be able to experience, to adapt, to make decisions and to live life from an understanding of life. Informed perspective.
From knowledge and practical application you develop insights that make clear how you can give depth and meaning to the relationship through recognizing the subjectivity of experienced, experiential learning, and guaranteeing a dog’s cognitive abilities.

Deeply, very deeply integrate, into every cell of your body. ” [Learning Dog participant 2015 – after having had a dog school for twenty years]
