Have you started putting your Christmas lights up?  We may have put a few lights up at Devon Dogs last week getting ready for the holiday season!  One of our favourite times of the year!  We had lots of super training this past week with our weekly classes working on a variety of skills, recall, foundation handling skills, contact work and we finished the week with Martin Cavill looking at course running and finding the fastest line for your dog.  The analysis was fascinating and help everyone better understand the quickest line for your own dog!

No matter what you are training, there is always something new to learn and we have added some super cool new workshops to our 2019 calendar…have a look as these are really exciting new workshops: Positive Gun Dog, NBN 3-Day Intensive, Innovative Search Games to name a few…these will fill up super, super fast!  One set of our workshop filled before we even had a chance to advertise!!!

Not sure whether a 1-2-1, weekly classes or workshops are right for you? Call us in the office on 07717 696623.

Naughty But Nice Day
December 2 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Do you own a dog that lunges and spins on the lead? A dog who likes to greet anyone and anything in the environment? Perhaps your dog barks at anyone that walks past your house? Are you afraid to go out on walks when other dogs or people may be around? Well don’t worry; you are not alone! We call these Naughty But Nice Dogs (NBN) and we LOVE them! NBN dogs might bark, lunge, pull on the lead, chase (dogs, cars, livestock, joggers…anything!) or just find general day-to-day life challenging. Owning an NBN dog can make you as an owner feel anxious or afraid to have friends/family visit. You may feel like you can only walk your dog when no-one else is around…midnight walks can be very lonely! We are here to help you transform your NBN, to turn your struggles into strengths! This workshop will arm you with the games and strategies you need to bring out the AWESOME in your dog!
