Animal Centred Education (ACE) is an integrated and mutli-modal approach approach to animal well-being and education. It has been developed by animal educator and behaviour advisor, Sarah Fisher.
Animal Centred Education combines observations of the animal’s posture, movement and nervous system responses, ACE Free Work, gentle bodywork, and the introduction of simple educational lessons within a Free Work set up.
ACE online courses give you a good understanding of ACE techniques including ACE Free Work, detailed ACE Observations, and gentle handling and bodywork. Interactive live online sessions, and in-person practical workshops (where accessible) support your online learning.
Every course carries ACE credits enabling you to work towards your ACE certification should you choose to do so.
Our current online courses run over two to three weeks online during specified dates, and include live coaching and support sessions in Zoom and in a dedicated FB group. Enrolments are manual to ensure we can limit the amount of participants. Please email [email protected] for more information, and booking forms for the courses that are of interest to you.
We also run in-person two day workshops at Tilley Farm that you can attend as part of the ACE Training Programme, or as a stand alone course to gain practical skills to support the dog in your care.
