The Dog Training Rehabilitation Programme
Additional Services

Due to the success of this programme our team also provide an additional part-time dog training course for young men in the Additional Support Unit, opening up opportunities for the most isolated and vulnerable young people in the institution to engage with Paws for Progress. This gives the young men opportunities to engage in positive activites with trained dogs.

The students learn about various topics including dog behaviour and welfare, whilst engaging positively with learning. There is a mix of practical and theory aspects of the course, with students building their dog training skills through initially working with our team of staff dogs and building up to working with the rescue dogs.
