Did you get your Christmas lights up this weekend?  Bowerland is decorated and ready for the holiday season!  We had an amazing week with our students.  Focus for our life skills classes was around disengagement from distraction and progress was amazing for all dogs who became more engaged with their owners!  Work for Genius Dog and Agility Foundation continued with some cone wrapping and targeting skills and understanding course walking.  Agility Starters worked on handling options within courses.  The week finished with a great group of Naughty but Nice dogs who all left with strategies to use when out and about!

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.

We will walk you through our top tips and step-by-step games to enable you to master boundaries.  Boundary games build so many concepts including confidence, impulse control and calmness. Boundary games are the secret to many dog training struggles. They make multi-dog households a joy to live in and are great for creating calmness.
