Professional AAI Learning

Sharpen your skills.

Be the best 

you can be.

Many people now are becoming interested in introducing animals for therapeutic benefits to humans as a career or in a volunteer capacity. Here, at Therapeutic Dog Services Incorporated we have a range of training programs to help you. 

We are often asked by people if they can spend time with us to learn how we work, to protect our animals and clients’ privacy we do not allow this, but you can learn about our way of working by booking onto one of our online, classroom or animal encounter training sessions.

We welcome anyone interested in learning more about animal-assisted activities for professional reasons or personal interest. You also have the satisfaction of knowing that your training fee contributes to the running of the therapeutic programs.

 

Our training programs are based on our extensive knowledge of bringing together animals and people in a way that benefits both, combining our experience of working with people from a variety of backgrounds with nonabusive animal training.

Our National base The Animal Assisted Interventions Discovery Centre is primarily a working therapeutic animal centre, so we continue to develop our skills on a daily basis.

Now is your chance to share this. We can offer practical advice and inspirational information, based on professional experience and a lifetime of learning.

We have a range of workshops and training programs – take a look at what we have on offer, or contact us with your individual requirements for a tailor-made training program.
