Can calmness be taught? Can we teach our dogs to relax and can we achieve calm companions?

We believe so.


Through games, Tellington TTouch, Ace Free Work, and other strategies we can show you in this day workshop how to achieve a calm, relaxed canine. 

This course will begin to answer some of the most misunderstood canine behaviours and as a result, will change the way you interact with dogs forever. The course also contains a deep dive into Canine emotions, why do dogs make choices, how can we teach them to make good, calm, choices, what is a dog's emotional bucket, and so on. We will also look at dog-dog interactions and learn about the chain and what happens if the chain is broken*.

We will also introduce you to a calmness triad and show you how to manage your dog's rest/calmness during the day and night. Did you know that your dog should sleep or be well-rested for 80% of their lives?**

This is the course your dog wants you to attend!

This course is certified through the Dog Training College


We offer the course at certain locations and can teach it bespoke at your dog club or training school. The course is ideal for 30-50 people, but we can accommodate up to 70 students. Please contact us if you would like to host this course at your venue.
