    Happy Dogs = Happy Owners!

    The first specialised training and healing retreats for dogs and owners in the world!

    Taking You and Your Dog from Where You are Now – to Where You Want to Be.


    Dogs are undoubtedly “Man’s Best Friend”…

    …but often our relationship with our pets aren’t everything they could be!

    With stressful behavioural habits, mis-understandings, or well-being issues being all too common in the modern canine – a new Dog and Owner Retreat in Wales aims to change this.

    Transformational Dog Retreats take a new and holistic approach to delivering outstanding results in dog training, well-being and care.

    Utilising a range of highly effective techniques; from energy balancing to animal communication and healing, the techniques are not only transformational for the dogs – but also for the owners!

    Whilst more traditional training and well-being methods work for some; many dog owners still have problems and are looking for something that will give them a better understanding of how their dog feels and what they can do to improve their confidence, behaviour and health in a more peaceful, natural and effortless way.

    Transformational Dog Retreats help dog owners develop a fresh perspective towards their dog training, care and ownership. During the retreats, owners are encouraged to discover new ways to transform their dog’s behaviour and well-being peacefully, by learning effective ways to move forward from the present moment of ‘NOW’ – to a future of peace, abundance, happiness and wonder!

    Founder of Transformational Dog Retreats, Caroline Griffith says: “Our wide range of holistic approaches to connecting with and then working with your dog to create a happy partnerships are highly effective and rewarding for both owner and the dog. Whether you are experiencing problems, or simply want to improve your bond and relationship with your dog – our retreats are the perfect place to come”.

    Dog & Owner Retreats

    Our retreats take place in the beautiful, relaxing Welsh Carmarthen countryside.

    Offering both dog and owner a peaceful, and well earned retreat away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Dogs stay with their owners in individual rooms, with full board organic food and drink included.

    Over the course of four days, owners and dogs will be able to take in the stunning scenery, enjoy group dog walks, receive pampering therapies, healing treatments, and take part in training and workshops including :

    The Tellington TTouch
    Animal Communication
    Arts and Crafts and Dolphin Reiki
    – which even includes a boat trip out to meet the Cardigan Bay Dolphins (with dogs in tow!).

    The retreat also includes an opportunity for owners to qualify as a practitioner of the new energy technique “The Balance Procedure”, and begin an inspiring career working with dogs and animals (or people too if they wish) -improving behaviour, well-being and life success.
