How Can We Help Dogs And Children Live Together 
With Mutual Understanding?

Dogs and children can be best friends and having a family dog in the home will enhance a child’s life, teach them respect and create a fantastic friendship. Unfortunately though, dogs are often misinterpreted and underrepresented by people, leaving them vulnerable to the unwanted advances of children, that go unchecked by the adults responsible for keeping everyone happy.

What Will I Learn?

This course teaches how to successfully manage the relationship and communication between a child and dog, based on trust, careful management and respect for everyone in the home, including the dog. The objective of the course is to raise awareness, enhance knowledge and show you exactly how to create harmony between dogs and children, whether you are a parent or working with dogs in a professional capacity as a dog trainer or canine coach. You will also learn how to deal with basic, common problems. During the course we present the facts on dog bites and teach you to truly understand canine requests, stress and an aggressive/defensive canine response. On successful completion of the course, you will understand;
  • The Five Freedoms
  • Canine Communication
  • Canine Stress
  • How Dogs Learn
  • Managing A Child's Expectations
  • Conflict Management
  • Appropriate Play
  • The Facts of Dog Bites
