Therapy Dog Training UK is a Responsible Business With a Purpose

  • We want to spread the message that the happiness and well-being of a therapy dog in any setting away from home is a priority

  • We want every therapy dog guardian to have access to best practice information in order to be knowledgeable & confident to deliver a safe, compliant therapy dog partnership to their clients.

There are therapy dogs bringing amazing benefit to people every day, often in demanding environments.  We believe we owe it to these amazing animals to offer gentle guidance and training so they can feel confident and happy to thrive in valuable work they do outside of family life.
