a variety of courses

The confidence is earned! You cannot simply deliver it by magic. It is work, it is endurance, it is good will, it is security and it is optimism.

We design a wide range of workshops, excursions and interesting, challenging and enduring courses - the Matucan experience - for you and your dog. A combination of education, training and fun that covers all the needs of a dog: the needs of living a happy life by your side and as an individual. We show you, as in all our activities, to better understand your dog: why he does the things he does. Understanding leads to knowledge and knowledge leads to trust. Trust is the basis of a good relationship - a good bond between you and your dog. Write us or check out on Facebook

Workshops by Matucan - Back to School

"Cuando la confianza es alta, la comunicación es fácil, instantánea y efectiva." (Stephen R. Covey, escritor)

We are going on a route along the Lozoya River in September. Starting from the beautiful Monastery of El Paular, we will go up the river taking advantage of the numerous pools to cool off. Our first autumnal excursion, in October, with the Matucan family: Autumn Colors. We will be as always surrounded by very beautiful natural landscapes around Madrid. And in November we return to Canencia in one of the most beautiful stations to visit the area, hunting for one of the rarest biological treasures in the area: mushrooms! There will be a small introduction to the mycology of the Sierra Norte of Madrid. Write us or check out on Facebook

Canine Excursions by Matucan

Fun, relax, play and a bit of education.

Practices that improve emotional issues found in dogs adopted from shelters (fear, aggressiveness, anxiety). We work with all sorts of dogs, with different diagnoses and severity, in order to manage their various emotional difficulties. It’s a fundamental and practical course aimed at both professionals with a desire to learn or perfect a different working method, and for people in a dog’s environment who wish to increase their knowledge and management capabilities, in order to begin working on these areas.

Practical Course on Emotional Management by Matucan

Practice gives confidence.

With this idea, together with the more than confirmed increase in the number of dogs in society, we have developed the training "Canine Education - the dog, a friend" with the aim of preparing children for positive encounters with dogs and transmit knowledge and understanding about them.

We consider this an essential training workshop for both children and adults, who are having a dog, will have a dog in the future or simply cross paths with them in the street in order to interpret their signals, respond appropriately and behave accordingly. Pending.

Canine education - the dog, a friend

Love and respect towards animals

We endeavor to not make these typical group obedience courses. Rather, we aim to teach you to observe dogs, comprehend their language and behavior both individually and in a group, and so understand, manage, foresee, and resolve any issue that can arise in day to day life. Socializing with other dogs, relating to humans, adapting to different spaces, and rules for living together are fundamental topics that can and should begin to be taught at 2-3 months of age in order to raise a good adult dog. You will learn how to educate your dog in a way that  is fun for you and your dog. Pending

Improve your relation an bonding with your dog.

How to introduce the dogs in a easy and edudated way.

Dogwalks in company

What else can you do with your dog and Matucan?

A new course that deepens a dog’s way of seeing the world by teaching it advanced techniques for searching for and detecting substances. Dogs will learn the techniques and resources used by professional dogs (those that work in security forces, as detection dogs, etc…). It’s an activity that is not only very fun, natural, and de-stressing for dogs, but that has a therapeutic component that comes from resolving any issue and helping balance dog’s emotional state.

Searching for and detecting substances

We have created a series of workshops to teach you the fundamental concepts of the treatment and management of new dogs, so as to resolve any initial doubts you may have when meeting them for the first time. If you either work or volunteer in shelters, or if you do dogsitting, these workshops are unmissable. Pending
