I just did this course with Rob and thought it was fantastic! Really informative and Rob is a great presenter, he was very helpful with how to get into this field and it really shows how dogs are just amazing and how much they can really help people. Highly recommend

Thoroughly enjoyed today's course, and it's made me what to get into scent detection now. As well as that it was amazing to learn what research is being done and how far it's come for PTSD sufferers and hope that one day I'll be able to help someone. Thank you

Tears, laughter and lively discussion at the excellent PTSD Therapy Dogs seminar today. Totally engaging from start to finish, heaps to take home and I absolutely can't wait for more.

An excellent course on the research going into PTSD dogs, and the applications of scentwork within that training! Rob's experience added many amazing, sometimes heartfelt and sometimes downright hilarious anecdotes, and I've come away with a deep newfound interest in scentwork. Fantastic stuff, and will definitely be looking into more scentwork courses in the future!
Jack Fenton
Brilliant presentation on therapy dogs - ptsd!! I can't wait for the next one. If you get a chance I would highly recommend attending one of Robs seminars. Fantastic delivery and contents from a hugely knowledgeable lovely chap.

Thank you so much for organising UKSD PTSD Therapy Dogs seminar with Rob Hewings in Dublin. It's hard to focus after a whole working week, but Rob kept me engaged the entire day. His personal stories and experiences added a really nice touch to the training and his passion was contagious.. A fantastic day from start to finish.
