      Family Dog Workshops  Our Family Dog workshops are specially designed to provide parents/carers of children with autism with the advice and long-term support needed for choosing and training a pet dog to benefit the whole family. The workshops are for parents/carers of a child aged between 3 - 16 years old with a clinical diganosis of autism. They are a series of 3 one day workshops, each starts at approximately 10.15am and aims to finish at 3pm.  Workshop 1 - Thursday 19 September 2019 Workshop 2 - Thursday 24 October 2019 Workshop 3 - Thursday 21 November 2019 Attendees are required to attend all 3 workshops.

I just sat there and cried. I was thinking ‘this could be life-changing, it’s just amazing.’ It was also brilliant to meet and talk to other parents of children with autism. I remember thinking ‘We’re all in this together, our struggles are real and these people really understand. We are not alone.’” - Liz, Jacob's Mum and workshop attendee. FAQs What can/can't I bring to the event? The workshops are for parents/carers only. We are unable to accommodate pet dogs or children. If I'm unable to attend, can I obtain a refund? If you have a situation that prevents you from coming to our workshops and you can give us 7 days notice before the date of the first workhop of your cancellation, we will happily refund your payment. If you have to cancel your place with less than 7 days notice then unfortunately we cannot refund your payment as we will have committed to final costs for the workshop. I have special dietary requirements Please state any special dietary requirements on the booking form and we will do our best to accomodate them.
