We offer assistance dog training both online via Zoom (a conference meeting app) and face to face. It is up to assistance dog teams which classes they engage with dependant on your needs and requirement. We sometimes offer short courses on top of our weekly classes. For details of these please keep an eye on our Facebook.
For partnerships registered in our assistance dog program we offer a variety of virtual training courses. These are:
Assistance dog working skills classes every Thursday & Friday at 2.30pm
Physical assistance dog task classes every other Monday at 2.30pm
Medical Alert & Response the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month at 2.30pm.
We have ran a lot of autism training sessions in April and therefore will not be running any in May however in June we will restart fortnightly autism & emotional support classes.
You can join any of the above courses at any time subject to space within the class. If you wish to join and the class is currently full we will add you to the waiting list. If our waiting list has enough people to form an additional class we will always try to do so. The virtual weekly classes each cost £6.50 per week, payable a month in advanced. We will send you an invoice which will tell you the date the class must be paid by. If you miss a payment you have 24 hours grace after which you will automatically be added to the end of the waiting list.
We also offer weekly face to face training sessions. These are:
We only accept new intake onto our face to face classes in January, April & September to allow us to tailor the training specifically to the young people attending the classes. Face to face classes cost £7.50 per class payable a month in advanced via invoice.
The face to face training is highly recommended especially for new or anxious dog owners. Virtual training requires you to impliment what you were taught including escelating the tasks and practicing at home under limited guidance. Face to face training offers targetted fun and intensive training which makes training really enjoyable for the young people and dogs and results in dogs mastering the training quicker.
