The course is provided in easy-to-digest weekly lessons over 6 weeks – with the option of working through the content at your own pace. We cover everything from the basics of mindfulness – breathing and refraining from judgement – to how you and your dog can better eat, rest, communicate and connect.
The course content includes such topics as:
- Mindfulness and Our Dogs
- The Secrets of Good Sleep for the Human End of the Lead
- Calm Connections for Better Communication
- The Right Kind of Exercise and Rest for a Calm Dog
- Eating the Right Foods for Health and Mental Wellbeing
- Moving Forward Mindfully
“I absolutely loved this course and would recommend it to anyone who works with dogs, owns a dog or is thinking of getting a dog.”
We aim to ensure that once you’ve worked with us, you’ll find the atmosphere at home more relaxing and enjoyable, and both you and your dog will be feeling much calmer and happier.
