Workshops

We offer a variety of workshops throughout the year.

Some with a specific training theme in mind, and some just for fun!

We have something for everyone at CKDT, so come and join the family...

Stay with Me - Recall Games Workshop

Are we struggling to regain proximity on walks? Perhaps we did during puppyhood until adolescence struck? Or maybe we have a new rescue dog that we're looking to build up the trust with?

Our Stay With Me Workshop provides caregivers with a set of tools to continually develop the bond that exists between human and canine, through the introduction of great fun games!

Walk with Me - Loose Lead Games Workshop

Pulling on the lead has a variety of reasons for our canine friends. 

But we can do so much to change up the experience of the walks we share with them, by working hard on those conversations about meeting us in the middle to create a more harmonious agreement. 

Our Walk With Me Workshop incorporates games and strategies set to wind down that urgency and fizz when we're out and instil some calm.

What do you need?
