Advanced Therapy-Dog Applications

Pre-requisite: You must have completed our Foundation AAI and Therapy-Dog certification course before enrolling in our Advanced Therapy-Dog Applications Course.

The Advanced course is designed for graduate teams (handler & dog) who wish to extend their theoretical knowledge and practical application skills. It provides a deeper understanding of the mechanisms of the Human-Animal Bond (HAB), and provides a framework in which to understand the how and why of Human-Animal Interaction (HAI). Practical classes include developing an understanding of 'off-lead' reliability, the fundamentals of trick training, and the basics of agility training. At the end of this three-day intensive course, teams will have a greater understanding of how to work together in therapy settings, and have a tool-kit of tricks and ideas to try.
