After the Initial Consultation, a possible choice for you and your dog can be the Educational Course.

Graeme Sims and Valentina Teghillo coaching a student with her dog

This is a live online dog training course that applies every aspect of The Graeme Sims Method ®.


The dog, in fact, does not speak our language but uses a totally different one.


In the Educational Course we will teach you to speak to your dog in a language it recognises as well as an understanding of what your dog is saying to you, so that it will willingly respond when it is close to you or a long, long way away.



This live online dog training course will make your relationship deeply satisfying for both of you.


A 10-minute session each day in a familiar place that your dog feels confident in, a written chapter each month, live online meetings with us every two weeks plus an exchange of "how-to-do it" videos and progress videos from you will keep us always closely in touch.


We will want to know all about you: whether you live in an urban situation or the countryside; the sex and breed and age of your dog; and whether it is neutered or castrated – in fact all we need to know.


Then we will take you on a fascinating journey from "I wish I could" to "I know I can" and an easy confidence that regular practise and increased knowledge produces.

The Educational Course is the complete dog training programme that enables you and your dog to achieve great results in terms of communication, relationship, partnership, understanding and responsiveness by applying every step of our Method.



Simona and Leonardo

Simona Carboni with Leonardo, May 2023

Yesterday evening I finished the course and saying goodbye to Graeme and Valentina was quite difficult. This 10-month journey has given me so much and I have grown very fond of these great professionals and wonderful people. I immediately understood that I would have had to do the hardest work on myself. In order to learn how to train a dog you must first deal with your ego because you know, we humans feel superior to any other creature. It was great learning to communicate with Leonardo who was only 8 months old at the beginning of the course. Leo's attentive and amazed look when he realized that I understood him and that we could speak the same language is a satisfaction that is priceless. I started the course with the sole objective of obtaining the means to be able to make my dog live a full and happy life.

I didn't have high expectations and wasn't about to "push the water uphill" (Graeme I will never forget your teachings). Leonardo is now 1 year and 5 months old, he has no difficulty traveling with his family, he remains calm at work with me, he is balanced in every context both in city traffic and in the tranquillity of the countryside. He also became proficient in searching. It is not clear who educated who between me and Leonardo, but the certain thing is that Graeme and Valentina's method of gentle approach to the dog is extremely effective. The secret? Unconditional love and the desire to continue communicating and sharing every aspect of this fantastic adventure called life with their dogs and their students. Leo and I will continue to practice and have fun together while always thinking of you. We are immensely grateful.

This live online dog training course is perfect for you and your dog if you wish to broaden your knowledge and experience.

You and your dog will create a strong bond, improve your relationship, understand and communicate with each other, resulting in a much better behaviour.

This is The Graeme Sims Method® fully explained and applied to you and your dog.


It's a 10-months course, because this is the necessary time to work without rush and assimilate each step.


During this course you will be continuously supported by us through:

  • Written chapters, one every month;

  • “how to do” monthly videos made by us;

  • Access to videos of our past students;

  • Our ever present guidance and coaching;

  • Frequent videos from you to us to show your progress;

  • Online class meetings: one every two weeks in the evening.
