Fantastic Fido

Fantastic Fido course is a three tier course for those wishing to train their dogs to assistance dog level of obedience, plus learn how to train several different tasks. 

These tasks can just be for pet dog guardians who would like to keep increasing the bond with their dogs, whilst teaching handy things to help around the house, or it can be for those who wish to train assistance dog tasks to mitigate a disability. 

Please note: if the ultimate goal is to train your dog to become an assistance dog, it is recommended that you register onto a waiting list with an organisation such as Dog AID or Pawsable (Autism), even though this course will give you all of the skills needed to train your dog.

Also, if you wish to use your dog as an assistance dog outside of the home, they will need to be of suitable temperament.

It is recommended that you start off as you mean to go on, by getting the Perfect Puppy course started as soon as possible.  

My Experience

I have trained, and assessed, with Dog AID, for clients with physical disabilities, as well as working with individuals with PTSD, FASD, and Autism, so have experience of working towards a variety of different task goals.  I also trained my Collie, Bonnie, many assistance dog tasks for my university assessments.  

Alongside my animal work, I have worked in human care homes, volunteered for St John Ambulance, and I am trained in Touch for Health Kinesiology and Reiki.  I have studied Autism and Behaviour that Challenges courses, including courses from the National Autistic Society.  I am also currently studying CPCAB Counselling Studies.


Sessions need to be used within a 24 week period.  Mileage is included within a 6 mile radius, after which mileage will be charged.
