Three Deep Dive Workshops Focusing On Why Humans & Dogs Behave As They Do, And How We Can Get To Know Each Other Better

“Take away a deeper understanding of the dog-human connection, that you can use to improve the relationship you have with your own dog straight away.”

(More payment options below)

Working in partnership with your dog to create a happy life together can feel like an uphill struggle sometimes, with stress, anxiety and overwhelm on both sides of the lead.

Leave these three workshops feeling more confident about your ability to give your dog their very best life, without compromising your own at the same time.

WORKSHOP ONE "Creating Safety"

May 31st – 6pm – 8pm BST

Both dogs and people need to feel safe in order to learn & develop. In this workshop we'll discuss how to create a safe environment for you and your dog, focusing on attachment, expectations of each other and more.

WORKSHOP TWO "Creating Freedom"

June 30th – 6pm to 8pm BST

Freedom is a core need within us all. In this workshop we'll discuss how to shape your dog's world to provide the most emotional and physical freedom possible. We'll also consider how to have your own needs met, whilst being the best you can for your dog.

WORKSHOP THREE "Creating Connection"

July 31st – 6pm to 8pm BST

Building, strengthening and maintaining a connection with our dogs is the basis for everything. In this workshop we'll discuss how connection looks different for different partnerships and how you can strengthen your bond with your own dog.
