To receive a TDT UK certificate of completion we would ask you to have undertaken the following steps:


  • To have completed Therapy Dog Training Workshops 1 and 2.

  • To submit the two straightforward assignments and case studies for both workshops. (Please do not be put off as the assignments are easy and designed to be valuable to you in your therapy setting)


We would always advocate the best practice recommendations; that any active therapy dog is at least 18 months of age and has achieved:


  • A UK Kennel Club Good Citizen Silver Award or its’ equivalent.

  • A positive temperament assessment for your dog either gained with us at TDT UK or with a fully qualified dog trainer or behaviourist.  This should be an annual event throughout the working lifetime of your dog to ensure his well-being and welfare.

  • You can gain a Kennel Club Good Citizen (KCGC) award assessment with a local KCGC accredited club.  The dog training video tutorials Bronze and Silver contained respectively in our Therapy Dog Training Workshops 1 & 2 will really help you with your practise at home as they mirror the requirements.
