What is NePoPo®

Language of Modern DogTraining

NePoPo® is a system created by Bart and Michael Bellon. It stands for Negative Positive Positive. It is a complex system that makes communication between dog and handler more effective because the dog does not resist it, but instead finds benefits in it itself. In this system, it is the dog who leads the whole training and does not just blindly follow the handler.

The result is a very confident dog that follows every command with heart and soul.

At NePoPo® we combine the best of both worlds: a positive way and old school. Remember: the best of both worlds. The system is the perfect balance between motivation and concentration.

NePoPo® is lifestyle


NePoPo® School


NePoPo® New Silver School

  • Three-day course (8 h/day). Michael and Bart Bellon will teach in English.

  • In the New Silver program, students will focus on NePoPo® theory. Students must first learn the language in order to become creators of their own NePoPo® program, which will be tailored to each dog individually.

  • When discussing training systems, we will emphasize how important it is to stay both within the limits of the law, but also within the limits of its perception. It is easy to apply NePoPo® within these limits because NePoPo® is the language of modern dog training and is a politically correct, humane and effective dog training system that allows for wide application while remaining within the strictest rules.

  • All students must understand the vocabulary of behaviorists and psychologists who teach behavior formation and memory: eg positive reinforcement, negative reinforcement, positive punishment, negative punishment, classical conditioning and operant conditioning and how to specifically apply them all with NePoPo®.

  • During the NePoPo® New Silver program, students will learn in depth what PoPo training is, what NePo training is, and what NePoPo® training is and the powerful aspects of each system.

  • All students must pass the final exam with a minimum of 90% to be a NePoPo® New Silver graduate.

  • Minimum age to participate is 21 years.

Training aids and how and why we use them at NePoPo® will be discussed. You will learn how to solve behavioral problems using NePoPo® and create clear and effective solutions.

  • Only certified NePoPo® Gold Graduates and new NePoPo® Gold Graduates may use the NePoPo® logo and may teach NePoPo®.

NePoPo® New Gold School with Arka K9

Why with us?

After graduating from the NePoPo® Gold School, I threw myself into training my own dog, it was necessary to implement the acquired knowledge into practice. So teach your dog top obedience, jumping and defense for Mondioring according to NePoPo® standards. My dog Raven is proof that I succeeded.

Then came the next step. Can I implement the system on other dogs as well? Different individuals, breeds and for a different goal? I founded Arka Team - Czech NePoPo® Training Group, where we are dedicated to Mondioring, IGP, service and hunting dog training. Arka Team is once again proof that dogs have performance according to NePoPo®.

Based on these experiences, I verified that I understand NePoPo® and can pass the system on. I also verified that long-term practice is a must. 

At NePoPo® Gold School with Arka K9, it's all about quality. About the transfer of knowledge and practice of the NePoPo® system. Only if you have a deep understanding of the NePoPo® system will you stand out in the market as a new NePoPo® Instructor. Knowledge and experience must be behind the NePoPo® certificate. That's our philosophy.
