Creating safe, happy relationships between kids and dogs

Kids Around Dogs

Did you know that the majority of bites to children come from their own dog, and the arrival of a baby is one of the top reasons that dogs are rehomed?

Do you have or are expecting children and want to ensure a harmonious transition for your family?

Are you welcoming a dog into your family and want a smooth introduction to create a safe, happy environment for everyone?

Is your child's fear of dogs preventing you from living a happy family life?

Perhaps you'd like to help your child enrich their understanding of canine behaviour and communication, to keep them safe and build a stronger bond with their dog?

Kids Around Dogs is an association of qualified and experienced, positive dog trainers and behaviourists. All KAD members have passed an extensive assessment process and are trained to use the protocol to overcome the fear of dogs in kids.

KAD approved trainers are DBS checked and have a child-centric approach to working with families on instilling harmonious happy relationships.

We don't just train your dog, we also make sure your family learns about your canine companion's language so everyone can gain a deeper connection and understanding.

We firmly believe that good, age-appropriate education is the key to keeping children and dogs safe around each other.
