Canine Perspective CIC 2020 Canine Progress & Our New Online Training Club Have you heard that we deliver our Canine Progress workshops with a canine co-tutor, a rescue dog? It’s true. We bring a whole new meaning to innovative resilience training and while we’re all about the fun factor, we never forget that you need a session that will offer tangible change.Sitting in a room, talking about building resilience, doesn’t sound hugely inspiring to me. There has to be more than interesting anecdotes and fascinating facts; what if you could SEE how to make a change, literally see change happening through your behaviour, communication and teaching?Resilience is a skill, it’s not something that we’re inherently good at, or not, it’s something that can be developed. Like any skill, it’s learned through DOING, not through passive learning.It’s BECAUSE of the canine co-tutor that we can show you how resilience is built and bring it to life throughout the session so you leave with tangible, actionable skills that will improve all aspects of your life.We have four different ways that you can get involved with Canine Progress; some might say it’s a four-paw approach!Canine Progress in the Workplace - teambuilding with a canine twist, building resilience and improving productivity for your team. Canine Progress for Entrepreneurs - one day for self-employed folk to focus on the most important asset in their business.Canine Progress for Charity & Social Enterprise - bringing together a group of clients/service users that access charity/socent services and delivering a practical resilience-building workshop.Canine Progress for Life - In response to the many requests that we have had from people who would love to experience our workshop because they are keen to develop their own resilience in a new way, we have Canine Progress for Life. After all, we’re all surviving something. While you're here (thank you!) I would also like to ask you a question about our new online dog training club. I really appreciate your time. We have big plans for 2020, so I need your help to create something that you would like to be part of! Thank you, Marie OK Question Title * 1. Having spent many, many days delivering workshops to teams in the corporate world and SMEs throughout the annual turnover spectrum, I have seen that stress in the workplace has become an epidemic. The passion that individuals feel for their work can often be an additional trigger for experiencing stress, after all, the more you care the more the work matters.All of the energy being channelled into managing stress is shifting the individuals’ focus away from the work that they have chosen to do, the work they care about, and the work they excel at. What a waste! We can re-channel that energy into positive mechanisms that will enhance productivity and wellbeing.Would you like us to deliver a Canine Progress in the Workplace session for your team with one of our rescue dog canine co-tutors? Yes, if you deliver the session at our office or a dog friendly venue near our office. Yes, and I'm happy to bring my team to your HQ in Herefordshire/Shropshire for the day. No thanks, this isn't something my team would benefit from. I don't have a team, I'm interested in something else! If you'd like to expand on your answer, that would be fabulous! OK Question Title * 2. You’re living the self-employed, solo-entrepreneur dream. You’re exhausted! I see you. It’s not easy, being one human and taking on the roles of business manager, accountant, marketing guru, administrator, designer, project manager, oh, and doing the actual work that brings in the money.You even have to make your own tea, when you get a minute!Step off the rollercoaster for one day and join us. You will then be ready to step back onto the rollercoaster with renewed energy, strategies to cope with the inevitable setbacks, a plan to achieve the business goals that have so far eluded you and the communication skills you need to get through the tough conversations, often with yourself. Ready? Yes please! I want to spend the day with a small group of self-employed folk and a rescue dog co-tutor, but only if you're near where I live and work. Yes please! I want to spend the day with a group of self-employed folk and resuce dog co-tutor. I'm happy to travel to your HQ in Herefordshire/Shropshire. No thanks, I don't think this would help me. I'm not self-employed, I'm interested in something else! If you'd like to expand on your answer, that would be fabulous! OK Question Title * 3. ‘My clients would LOVE this!’We hear that a lot and we’re at your service! We have worked with people who are experiencing challenges with their mental health, addiction and domestic violence. We have also worked with people undergoing treatment for cancer, their families, people who have experienced bereavement and people accessing support for PTSD.We’re yet to find a client group who hasn’t benefitted from this session but please don’t take that as a challenge!Accessing charity or social enterprise support usually means that someone is in need of help and by definition, that means they have experienced something that they need support to overcome, get through or learn to live with. In the midst of their experience, there’s always a need to develop physical and mental wellbeing in a way that will create a tangible change to their situation or their mindset around their situation.Would you like us to deliver a workshop to your clients? Yes, if you can deliver the session at our office or at a dog-friendly venue near our office. Yes, I'm happy to travel and bring our group to your HQ in Herefordshire/Shropshire for the day. No thanks, this isn't for us. I'm not part of a charity of social enterprise, I'm interested in something else! If you'd like to expand on your answer, that would be fabulous! OK Question Title * 4.

Including: communication & self-talk, mindfulness, overcoming trauma, exploring fear, confidence building and many more... Bringing home a rescue dog. Literally everything you need to know... and then some! General training & behaviour tips. Including: recall, loose lead, jumping (or, not jumping!), leave it, drop it... you know, all the cues for a harmonious life with your dog. Enrichment ideas. Easy to implement at home with your dog. Training diaries, training logs and training plans for each of the cues rather than just tips/instructions. Questions & answers, so you can submit a question (anonymously if you'd like) and all answers will be stored in a library. Links to trusted resources, books, products and social media/websites. So you know they're force-free, kind and reputable. Understanding your dog. Including body language, different age-stages and links to/interviews with people with specific expertise who can help.
