Online Courses

Online courses are a super way to discover new activities to do with your dog and grow your knowledge at a pace to suit you! 

We offer courses on a range of topics from working on behaviour problems like separation difficulties to enrichment and wellbeing for a calm, relaxed dog. 


We also offer 1:1 behaviour and training support online which you can find here.


Our Circle of Paws membership groups will be opening soon!  


Courses are grouped together by topic to help you find what you need

***Starts March 2021*** (when the current firework and storm season is mostly over!)


For next year's firework season, the very best thing you can do for your dog is to prepare IN ADVANCE. 

Imagine the weight that will be lifted from your dog as they no longer live in fearful anticipation of the next noise to make them jump. 

Our Level 2 course helps you create a tailored programme of desensitisation, relaxation and confidence building to help your dog ditch the fear and feel ok about fireworks and other loud noises. 

This includes 8 months of support (to November 2021) in a private Facebook group, access to discounted online one to one sessions with one of our behaviour team, an ongoing 10% discount on everything in the Canine Thinking shop and discounted rates for our other online courses. 

It's just £129 for 8 months of help and support – that's £16 per month or just a cup of coffee per week.
