Naughty But Nice Day

30 August @ 10:00 am4:00 pm

nbn day

Naughty but Nice dogs have their challenges, some will say they have issues. They might not like certain situations, people or other dogs. They are often unconfident but can sometimes come across as ‘confident’ as they tend to bark and lunge towards whatever it is that they are troubled by. Do you find it stressful walking your dog out and about? Are you worried about what is going to happen? Are you a ‘midnight’ walker taking your dog out when no one else is around?  Or maybe you can’t get your dog to go out on walks?  Are any of the following struggle familiar to you?

  • Running over to other dogs;
  • Growling, lunging, barking on lead;
  • Stopping and not wanting to walk anymore;
  • Jumping all over strangers;
  • Barking at noises;
  • Chasing cyclists, joggers, wildlife or livestock (anything really!);
  • Pacing, watching, always aware and ready for what might happen.

We call these Naughty But Nice Dogs (NBN) and we LOVE them! We are here to help you transform your NBN and 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! You are not alone, we have your back and are here to help you out!

This workshop will arm you with the games and strategies you need to bring out the AWESOME in your dog!

We will cover:

  • On lead reactivity or anxiety;
  • Out and about strategies;
  • Understanding your dog’s body language;
  • Motivating your dog and using appropriate rewards;
  • Games that will bring out the BEST in your dog;
  • Games you can play at home or take out and about.

Our facility has plenty of space and is perfect for you and your NBN to feel comfortable and be setup for the success!  We will have the dogs work in with appropriate distance and space and show you how to use your environment to have the best experience with your dog when going out on walks, to the park or around your neighbourhood.

This workshop will take you from worrying about what could go wrong, to getting excited about what will go right!! You’ll start thinking about all those challenges as true training opportunities.

For taking part in this wonderful workshop you will also receive a copy of the fantastic and worldwide successful Naughty But Nice DVD so that you can continue with this valuable work at home.

All breed and level of dog and handler are welcome; this really is a workshop for everyone! Please bring a packed lunch/snacks and a mug for a hot drink.
