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 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.
Transform the way you understand your dog
We take the foundation skills you learn at Level 1 and guide you through how to analyse behaviour and posture in much more detail and then apply that knowledge to help you achieve real improvements to common behaviour and training issues.
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.

we break everything down into tiny, manageable steps
there are lots of additional exercises to build the life skills your dog might be missing
we can even help you to look at medication through your vet
This course is expected to take you at least 3 months, and may be longer depending on the severity of the issues.
