About our Family Dog workshops

Our new Dementia Family Dog workshops are an education-based service. We aim to provide and signpost appropriate and reliable sources of information for families living with dementia, who are considering getting – or already have – their own pet dog. 

There will be 3 online workshop sessions to complete, in your own time from home. These will be supported with regular ‘live’ interactive video sessions with the Dementia Dog team.

Please note: This service does not provide practical dog training classes. However, we do advise on training approaches and signpost to reliable sources of dog trainers. This service also does not train pet dogs to become assistance dogs.

Who can participate in these workshops?

Our online workshops will be open to families living with dementia who are in the UK. Longer term, we hope to expand the workshops to more families and deliver some of this service face to face when current lockdown restrictions allow.
