The weather has been simply perfect here in Devon for dog training!  We have enjoyed our weekly classes and with the stunning weather it was great to have our classes work in a new environment this past week.  Our agility classes worked on their contacts and weaves and our Genius Dog and Agility Foundation focused on teaching their dogs new tricks!  We had a fabulous weekend workshop on positive gundog training which carries on into today; the games working on recall, retrieve, steadiness, whistle work and so much more can be used by anyone when out on a walk!  We love gun dog games!  Environmental training is really important, lots of new distractions with smells and so many different things to see!  Having the dogs work through these really proves the value of the games!  The more you take the games out and about the stronger relationship you build with your dog and this is the secret to a super recall where your dog picks you over everything else in the environment.

We have some exciting workshops coming up that will help with your struggle or interest…we have a game for that!  Here are some highlights for events we are holding in 2019, and as always you can join us at anytime for a 121 bespoke training package!
