"The fear of dogs is in the mind, and your mind can be changed" - Debby Lucken, Founder of KAD

My child would run to try and get away, panic, hide, do everything he could to avoid the dog e.g. cross the road. The protocol was delivered with great communication; the sessions pitched just right; humour used and they were led by the child. All just brilliant! It has been life changing for us for the better!

KAD gives children confidence when dealing with dogs while teaching the importance of respect and consideration for our canine companions! Their training methods are truly beneficial for both adults and children.

Jessica just could not be anywhere near a dog; she would climb up us to get away. It was so difficult just to get out of the house. The protocol sessions were fun and short. She was teaching me as well as Jessica. We would go on walks and talk about the dogs we could see in the distance. Slowly she began to realise that dogs were not a threat. She now understands and feels more in control.
