Engagement/Disengagement Filmed Event and Workshop

13 July @ 9:30 am14 July @ 4:30 pm


Do you struggle to be exciting to your dog in the face of distractions? Are you the centre of fun, or does the environment offer your dog more in the way of rewarding experiences?

As dog owners we want our dogs to be able to engage with us, no matter what the environment might be tempting them with – not because they have to, but because they want to!

This requires two fundamental skills, or concepts:

  • Engagement (with you!)
  • Disengagement (from all those other temptations and distractions)

Join Tom and Lauren for 2 days of filming where they will show you the games to build those skills and help you work through the struggles owners commonly have with their dogs. The focus will be on achieving that perfect balance of engagement with you and disengagement from the environment.

What does this look like?  

  • A dog that can recall away from the leftovers of someone’s picnic in the park
  • A dog that ignores another dog owner and dog having a game of ball on the beach
  • A dog that sees visitors to the house as a non-event!

This is the dream of every dog owner and it is possible through engagement and disengagement games!

This day will be filmed, and you will be required to sign an electronic film waiver the week before the workshop. Call the office to discuss your needs or book right now on the website!

Please bring a packed lunch/snacks and hot/cold drinks for the day.

We are looking forward to having you train with us! To help us ensure you have the best possible training experience, please arrive at the start time specified for this event. Devon Dogs is a Centre of Excellence training facility and we want to ensure all training change overs are smooth and easy.

We understand it is difficult to estimate arrival times and we know you will have planned for the unexpected in your journey! Should you arrive a little early, we recommend stopping at the Shell Services just off of the A30, only half a mile away from us. There is a Little Waitrose, Greggs, Subway and Burger King with tea/coffee and lots of healthy (or not so healthy!) snacks and prepared meals as well as toilet facilities. If you wish to go for a short walk, you can access the Granite Way in Sourton.

To get the best out of your training with us, please review this *awesome link* that includes what to bring for training, what you need if you are training in Bowerland Arena plus some helpful tips.

Please be aware that you may experience difficulties making a payment if you are using a mobile device.
