Animal Assisted Intervention (AAI) Dog Training Weekend

Location: Lincolnshire LN2 3QR

This is an intensive two-day theory and practical course that is ideal for those considering a career in the Animal Assisted Intervention field.

Animal-Assisted Intervention (AAI) is a type of therapy that involves animals as a form of treatment. The goal of AAI is to improve a patient's social, emotional, or cognitive functioning.

Frequently, dogs are used for this type of work. 

Are you wanting to use your own dog as a therapy dog?  Are you wanting to know how to train your dog for this kind of work or how to assess their suitability?

This course will help you identify whether a dog is a suitable candidate or whether he finds it too stressful.  The course also covers the type of training needed.  It is not just a case of a good level of "obedience" training - we do not use lots of cues to ask the dog for behaviours.  Instead, the dog will offer this behaviour because it feels really good to do that behaviour.

There will also be a practical opportunity to learn how to train dogs for working in Animal Assisted Intervention.

For quality purposes, this course has a maximum of 5 participants.

Please note that participants are not allowed to bring their own dogs to this course.
