New partnership with Therapy Dog Training UK
2nd July 2021
As part of our aim to work alongside those working with animals, providing them with support for their insurance needs and helping to de-mystify insurance, we are proud to announce our new partnership with Therapy Dog Training UK. Students can now qualify for discounted premiums (subject to minimum premiums).
Therapy Dog Training UK, run by Sarah Ellis and Carol Lincoln, provide a series of online workshops and live consultations helping to equip dog owners with the skills to effectively train themselves and a suitable dog to deliver a safe and compliant canine therapy service with best practice in mind.
As a fully qualified and accredited trainer with The Institute of Modern Dog Trainers, Sarah is passionate about dogs helping humans. She was a pioneer in volunteering with her own ‘reading and visiting dogs’ via R.E.A.D. & Pets as Therapy, becoming a regional P.A.T. dog assessor in 2005. A full Canine Training Professional Member of the PPGBI for Force Free Trainers and member of Doggone Safe, Sarah is fully committed to promoting & teaching positive reward-based training throughout the lifetime of a companion dog.
Carol has held management roles in the charity sector for some years and has experienced first-hand how animal assisted intervention has improved the lives and well-being of people of all ages, especially children with special educational needs, people with health challenges and those suffering from depression and social isolation. From 2015 to 2019 Carol developed and managed an educational canine assisted therapy volunteer programme with 80 participating schools, libraries and colleges across Wales.
Carol and Sarah are delighted to be part of the coalition of organisations that helped to produce ‘Bark and Read – Standards of Practice for Providers of Animal Assisted Interventions in Schools published by the Kennel Club UK in 2018.
As a provider of specialist insurance cover for therapy dogs we are very much looking forward to building our relationship with Therapy Dog Training UK and helping their students with their business insurance requirements.
