Talking Dogs Scentwork
Have you seen scent detector dogs in action on TV and always wanted to give it a go? Want to try something different with your dog? We are lucky enough to be hosting TDS trainer Louise Bater for these workshops from July.
Begin your fabulous scentwork journey with your dog and tap into their natural ability to detect particular scents with their amazing sense of smell. We'll teach your dog to search for a specific scent and be rewarded via an active indication. With just 8 handler spaces you get to have lots of searches throughout the workshop and so many interesting facts to learn too. Spectator places also available. Handler places £95 for 1 handler & dog, spectator places £45 per person
Minding Manners Workshop
Is your dog impulsive? A little over the top when it comes to getting his own way? Does he barge through doors with the excitement of getting outside or jump all over everyone who dares to say hello to him? Does he insist on rushing over to greet every other dog, sometimes with you hanging on the end of the lead getting towed behind? Impulse control is something many dogs struggle with and can result in high levels of frustration. In this workshop we show you how to teach your dog manners in a way that he can learn without getting too frustrated. We show you how to break down the behaviours so that he becomes more focussed on you and enjoys learning. The principles are those that you can practice in different areas of your life so that your dog learns that being patient pays! We have 2 APDT trainers and a maximum of 8 dogs so plenty of help at hand.
