We’re thrilled to be joining you on your journey into Animal Assisted Interventions.
Throughout this program you’ll deep-dive into the science of dog behaviour and training, using proven methods, without using punitive punishment on your dog. We will help you to build a bond with your dog, which is based on mutual respect and appreciation of the work they will join you in. We will show you how to train your dog, using hand signals, which we believe is optimal in working with trauma clients, whether they are young children or adults.
This Course will provide theoretical and practical components. It will allow participants "real life" training with their dogs. The theory component is completed online through this website and the practical component is 3 days at our facility in Benalla.
The practical component will include visits to shops, street training, cafés, vet clinics, and schools and aged care facilities, to help you see how your dog will work, and how we can improve our dogs and ourselves as handlers. And most importantly to give you and your dog the confidence to continue on your path to success in AAI
It will cover the following topics:
Our courses are open to all professions who have a suitable dog to train with. (Dogs must be over 12 months to begin the practical or online course)
