What will we learn?
Tell me more...
I am a mum to 13 year old twin girls. Animals have always been a big part of our family life. I have designed this course to include activities that I know kids of all ages enjoy - cooking, making and hanging out with the family dog. Children don't get taught about appropriate ways to interact with animals, and so this can inadvertently sometimes put them in danger. Through the train, play and learn videos the whole family can get the test from their dog in a way that is positive for everyone involved.
Who is the course suitable for?
K9 Cadets is a course suitable for children of all ages. Each exercise has been demonstrated and enjoyed by my 13 year old daughter. Younger children will need more adult help to complete the activities, but it is great to get the whole family involved. You only need to purchase the course once for the whole family to take part. You then have lifetime access to all the videos. so can re-visit the activities whenever you like.
Family dogs comes in many different sizes, ages and personalities. No previous training is needed to enjoy the Train and Play videos. You will see my daughter demonstrate with our 3 dogs - tiny Dexter the 2 year old Chihuahua, crazy Siri the 5 year old bouncy Dalmatian and anxious Orla the 12 year old rescue crossbreed who hates being touched and new dogs. The purpose of these activities is to get the children and the dog to interact together safely. As I mention in the adult safety video you may need to adapt some of the exercises to your individual dog, but this doesn't mean they cant take part. Children should always be supervised when interacting with dogs.
