Retreats for Dogs and Their Owners

The Pawz4Thought Empowering Communication Day

Sheepdrove Farm, Lambourne




This canine facilitated experience acts as a catalyst for teaching yourself and others how to communicate in a way that is effective and impactful.  As specialists in communication we recognise that learning how to engage, motivate, and connect with a dog, and gaining insights from your abilities and limitations, is a direct metpahor for how to inspire, engage and motivate people in business and everyday life.

Join us on this special retreat where you’ll get the opportunity to:

  • Join a gathering other wonderful men and women and enjoy facilitated learning, group work, and personal reflection time, and fun with your dog to prepare the path for your success.
  • Learn how to clear limiting-self beliefs and restrictions that clutter your growth and stop you from achieving your full potential.
  • Come together to share ideas, increase self awareness, self confidence, inspiration and energy, and attain greater clarity of your vision.
  • Identify and resolve personal and professional challenges
  • Strengthen team-building, decision-making and leadership skills
  • Improve personal and professional relationships
  • Create your unique Pawz4Thought action plan and end the day feeling inspired and ready for action.

Plus you will:

  • Understand what makes you unique and be able to spot the uniqueness in other people.

Or just simply come along for an amazing day out with your dog!

After a welcoming coffee, a light breakfast, and talk in the training room of this eco-friendly organic farm, hidden away in a breathtaking setting, high on the Berkshire downs, you will have the opportunity to learn and practice some powerful communication techniques, and evidence how impactful your leadership is through working with the dogs…and not just our dogs…but your own dogs! Refreshments will be served throughout the day including lunch.

Who should come?

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a dog lover or you’re a dog owner, whether you have a lot of experience with dogs or none at all; as long as you have a desire to work on your personal development and improve your overall impact in a safe, intimate, rural environment – with our dogs or your own dog*.  The approach is unique and the results are accelerated.

What to bring:

Journals/books and luscious pens you like to write/draw with. I’ll have pens too.

Please wear comfortable clothes and shoes. Also bring appropriate outdoor clothing that allows for an outside activity with the dogs.

We will have snacks, spring water and a seasonal organic lunch.
