The Family Dog Service is for UK residents and UK residents that are temporarily living abroad.  Our Virtual Workshops are pre-recorded and accessed via an online platform called SharePoint.

There are three main Workshops (1, 2, and 3).

There is an optional additional Workshop called ‘Selecting the Right Dog’, which can be accessed on SharePoint.

Each Virtual Workshop is accompanied by a corresponding ‘Workshop Live’ event, held as a group video call on Microsoft Teams.

Each group starts with an Introductory Live session, followed by three Workshop Live sessions, and costs £60 in total.
The ‘Workshop Lives’ are held on the group’s dates you book on to when booking your ticket.

The Intro Live lasts around 45 minutes.

Each Workshop Live lasts around 1.5 – 2 hours.

Please note:

  • Once you have registered for your group, a payment window/page will follow. Please complete payment to secure your place.
  • If you do not secure your place straight after registration and still wish to attend, you will need to email [email protected] for assistance.
  • We may need to cancel a group if one receives low bookings. You will then be offered a place in an alternative group, so that you get the best experience in the Workshop Lives.”
