If you are interested in training a therapy dog.
Your paws are in the right place.
Therapy Dog Training UK provides a series of online theory and practical video-based workshops, which when combined will equip you to effectively train your dog to deliver a safe & compliant canine assisted therapy service.
The video-based practical dog training courses are designed for dogs with a range of capabilities. The easy to follow tutorials take you from a puppy/young dog with little or no training right through to the recommended level for therapy dog work.
The canine assisted therapy theory workshops provide important guidance to ensure your dog’s well-being and ultimately judge whether canine assisted therapy is right for your dog. You may be joining a respected pet therapy organisation or want to deliver an independent service. Either way, the workshops guide you through your dog’s assessment & training, important legal compliance & animal welfare considerations as well as helping you seek a supportive therapy setting.
For existing or newly formed pet therapy organisations, the complete series offers a valuable volunteer training resource and will aid in designing a volunteer programme.
