WHAT PEOPLE SAY
My golden retriever and I completed the Pawfect Communities Therapy Dog training course over 5 days and it was a fantastic experience. Dave's expertise on dogs was amazing and helped me to get to know my dog much better. Kim's expertise on dogs in the workplace and how to introduce and work with my therapy dog in the workplace. My dog comes to work with me everyday and brings such joy to my work environment! Thank you Pawfect Community!
Kim, Megan and David provide a welcoming, calm environment, and encourage you to build a bond with your dog whilst training. They all give step by step guidance, and are wonderful, knowledgeable people and you can see that whilst they work. They are all honest and tell you what needs improvement, but handle it in a professional manner. You can see their passion for the dogs, and the work they do. They are the pawfect addition to any community.
We’ve been through Pawfect Communities Therapy Dog training twice, with two of our dogs.
Each time, the
Pringuer Family were patient, caring, and attentive to our Poppy and Sonny. The training was incredibly comprehensive, covering not only the essentials of therapy dog behaviour, but also touches on the psycho-social aspects of working in a therapy dog team. The skills we obtained throughout Pawfect Communities training have been transferrable across many environments including aged care, disability and education, setting us and our dogs up for many meaningful animal assisted engagements. Thanks so much Pawfect Communities for providing this excellent training!
