Help your dog to gain more confidence around other dogs and people, and to become more relaxed in different environments.

Learn some of the tools that will help you to recognise when your dog needs help, how to support him and how to help him have good experiences.


Set in the relaxed atmosphere and beautiful natural environment of Cannock Chase you will learn skills such as:

  • How to improve the way you support your dog through the sympathetic use of the lead and your actions

  • Awareness of how sensitive body language can influence your dog

  • Recognising how different environments can influence your dog

  • How to move from avoidance and management to building up real life skills

  • How to help your dog to feel more socially confident
