Course description

Who is it for: If you are a teaching or healthcare professional wanting to offer a therapy dog service for your setting, you plan to volunteer for a pet therapy organisation or offer an independent paid for service, this course is for you. Course type: Mixed: Live dog training sessions & temperament assessment. Back up video based tutorials for you to practice at home. On booking this course you will also be enrolled into Therapy Dog Workshops 1&2 at no extra cost for your fully comprehensive downloads and reading materials to work towards your certification. Entry Requirements: Your dog will need to be 18 months old (please contact us if he is younger) and will need to have completed a level of training to Bronze level or equivalent. He must at least be confident with 'walk on loose lead' 'sit' 'down' 'wait' 'stay' 'recall' 'call away from a distraction' and 'leave it.' We will be working in a classroom with 4 or 5 other dogs so he will need to be happy to be with you in that environment. All instructional videos for these and more can be found in our Therapy Dog Workshops 1&2. He must have a great temperament and be confident and happy to meet other dogs & people. Award: On successful completion of the course you can go on to achieve TDT UK - Visiting Therapy Dog Certification and membership of TDT UK. *Please note our course is for a visiting therapy dog and not a dog used as emotional support. *Terms and Conditions apply Training Location: Bristol.
