What is AAT?

Dogs communicate through body language facilitating clients with social difficulties communicating with other people. Dogs also provide instant feedback regarding a person’s mood, behaviour and communication methods. Read more about AAT here.

What courses do we offer?

We currently offer an Introductory Workshop, Clinical Course, Community Course, and Early Development Workshop for Puppies.

The Introductory Workshop is six hours long, runs on Zoom and gives you a basic idea of the concepts involved in Animal-Assisted Therapy. The Clinical Course is five days over five weeks and is for Bachelor educated professionals. The Community Course is for volunteers and community workers. The Puppy Workshop prepares puppies for better success in the more advanced courses. All courses require participants to have their own dogs. Therapy Dogs Australia does not supply dogs to participants.
