I am writing to you to express my thanks and appreciation for the excellent Dog Safety talks Kristine Ancane delivered at Cannon Park Primary last week. She had an excellent rapport with the children and got her message across very clearly, at the appropriate level for the children. Kristine and Simba have now visited all our classes! A number of children were nervous of dogs, but many of them plucked up the courage to either go nearer to Simba or in some cases stroke her. The staff at school were also very impressed. Many of them saying that this was the highlight of our Health Week. So once again a big thank you to Kristine and to you and your organisation.
An excellent day – Thankyou
Would recommend to all of my colleagues
I feel that I know how to act now and it has built confidence
I stroked a Rottweiler!!!
I touched a breed of dog that I have a deep fear of
Enjoyed the facilitators sense of humour and excellent to meet the dogs
I particularly liked practice of where to stroke a dog, and being introduced to a barking dog
Good practical skills taught of dog behaviour; meeting the dogs was a good positive experience – I have never been in close positive contact with large breeds
Everyone was very satisfied with the training
I did not think my fear of dogs would be resolved in one training session! I believe this was possible through the excellent interpersonal skills and friendliness of the trainers.
Totally beyond my expectations, aims and objectives. The training was superbly delivered. I found all the trainers encouraging, supportive- and their humour allowed the training to be informal and relaxed
You have liberated me from a lifetime fear- I have had CBT, but it did not come anywhere near close to what happened today. Its hard to believe that I stroked those dogs!!
Facilitators were very welcoming and clearly knowledgeable
The course should have been longer
Excellent, interesting, challenging and enlightening as well as very informative and useful
Surpassed my expectations excellent course
The trainers were excellent, course content relevant, excellent!!
Excellent practical advice; brilliant facilitators and a good pace
