K.A.D. Kids Around Dogs

KAD is a training programme developed by Debby Lucken. Debby is building a national team of trainers who will use her KAD protocol to help children and families who need support to live safely with, or be comfortable around, dogs.

Suitable for children from around age 4 to 10 years of age, the programme has been designed to help children understand about dog body language, know how to interact with both familiar and unfamiliar dogs, and how to stay safe around them.

Training is provided through an online programme of 7 individual weekly sessions, each lasting approximately 20 minutes. At the end of the 7 weeks, children will engage in 2 face-to-face sessions where a dog will be present.

In order for the programme to be successful a parent/guardian will need to be present, during all of the sessions, and support their child with the weekly games.

I am offering the full course of 9 training sessions for £150. Your child will receive a certificate and badge when the course is complete.

Please get in touch with me for a chat if you are interested in enrolling your child on the KAD programme.

All KAD trainers are DBS checked.
