The Dog Education Project

Bringing quality education, equipment and force free training to humans for dogs in the heart of community parks

We did it!

On 12th Jan 2018 we successfully raised £1,169 with 46 supporters in 42 days

The Dog Education Project is the beginning of a whole new story for dogs.

Rescue organisations spend millions of pounds every year re-homing dogs that have suffered from a simple lack of human education and training.

We believe education about dog behaviour and training should be free, fun and easily accessible for all.

A dogs welfare shouldn't depend on how much money is in their owners pocket and in a few short years of education we can change the fate of a whole nation of dog owners.      

We are going to empower present and future dog owners with free training sessions and workshops in the heart of their public parks. Dog ownership can be delicious if you know how to: 

  • Buy and train puppies from an early age
  • Avoid puppy farmers and identify poorly reared pups
  • Read and understand dog body language
  • Use pain free positive training techniques in training & rescue rehab

Phase 1: Regional Education tour: £15,000

Starting in the West Midlands we will deliver 10 practical dog training days in public parks all over the region offering free classes, equipment and training books to local dog owners. We will also run 4 free education workshops North, South, East & West of Birmingham. We will send education packs to every vet, rescue and pet shop in the region and invite every positive pet professional to put a paw print into this campaign. 
We intend to touch the lives of 1500 dog owners in Phase 1, building a foundation of positive training and buying ethics that will continue to ripple out through community training supported by vet, rescue and pet shop networks.  
We've tried and tested these sessions for 7 years. They're always fully booked and owners LOVE them!                         
Now we want to give them away for free beause we 

                                                                             LOVE PETS, NOT PROFITS

But this project isn't just going to help dogs and their owners..
Vets, Pet shops, Rescues, Dog Trainers, Walkers, Parents, Cats.. even dog haters all stand to benefit from this project!

Stretch Goals:

Phase 2: Education Bus & Pre Trained Puppy Breeder Scheme  
If we are blessed with on going support from additional donations we will buy and refit an education bus and plan a national tour of these free sessions to touch the lives of as many communities as possible.
We will also lay the groundwork to introduce and promote the 'Pre Trained Puppy' & 'Prove your Pricetag' schemes for breeders  & prospective puppy buyers. Puppies CAN be bought at 8 weeks having been fully house trained, taught to sit and come to their name, chew toy & crate trainedsocialised to urban sights and sounds and confident of handling by men and children. This will only become the norm when buyers learn to demand these standards from breeders. Puppies trained this way will be bombproof for life and never experience the fears and phobias we behaviourists get paid a small fortune to try and fix in todays domestic dog population. Breeders also need to be trained to understand the important work that needs to go into puppy socialisaition pre sale and held accountable by buyers to Prove their Pricetag!    

Phase 3: Roll out of The Dog Education Project Nationally + Video Series 

If we get support from a sponsor or gifted with continual donations we will travel around the UK providing free workshops and practical training sessions far and wide, video blogging the lives your donations are changing along the way. We will also produce a free video based online training resource!               

 
Phase 4: The Dog Education Cafe & Community Hub       
The set up of a community cafe that brings dogs & people (especially children) together in a mutually satisfying setting is long overdue. One day we hope to open an education cafe or pop up training shop to make access to information about;

  • Dog behaviour
  • Training 
  • Buying Dogs
  • Greeting & Handling 

readily available to the public on the high street. There are vets and pet stores in every suburb.. so where are all the training shops...
