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
Help your dog be confident
There is no need for dogs to be in a state of distress when there are tools and techniques to help them cope.
We cover 9 key areas including:
– activities to help your dog relax and settle
– unravelling the minefield of supplements
– a guide to prescription medications to help you have an informed conversation with your vet
– the importance of gut health
– the influence of pain
– how to plan environment and routine changes
– to cuddle or not to cuddle
You also get 10% off everything in our shop for the rest of the year and £55 off our free work, ttouch and fireworks level 2 courses.
At least £2 from every course goes direct to our rescue charity partners!
***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.
Help your dog relax and engage with you
An essential tool for all canine guardians
to help your dog be more relaxed
for settling in a new puppy or rescue dog
for being comfortable with grooming/vets
for improving separation
to help with reactivity to dogs/people
as part of physical conditioning and rehabilitation
The applications are endless – and most importantly, it can form part of your dog's daily enrichment activities and will help take your relationship to a whole new level of understanding.
Build relaxation through gentle contact
TTouch is a wonderful system of non-invasive body contact (very gentle touches) and non-habitual movements which activates the nervous system:
to help reduce stress and release tension
to improve balance and movement
to increase relaxation (for you and your dog!)
to build positive associations with physical contact and enhance communication.
Deepen your connection with your dog as we guide you through the core body work ‘TTouches’ and some of their many applications for wellbeing and behaviour.
