The Ultimate Relationship Boost
January 13 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm£55
RELATIONSHIP…the secret weapon to an awesome recall, to having a dog that picks you over EVERYTHING: sheep, a new person or dog…that fox poo (YUCK!).
How do we accomplish awesome relationships with our own dogs here at Devon Dogs?
We do a couple of things:
- We Ditch the Food Bowl, and
- We play games with our dogs!
This makes training fun and fabulous. So exactly what do we do?
Our absolute favourite set of games for our dogs is the Triple F (Fast/Fit/Flex) programme. We work on this at home using our dogs’ daily food allowance. Doing this builds our dog’s value for us, for working with us and they get mentally and physically challenged. The Triple F programme is absolutely perfect for any dog and is the ultimate relationship builder! The best way to invest in the relationship bank account is through positive interactions and the Triple F games are absolutely great for this!
We are passionate about our dogs’ fitness, not just the future sports stars, but for all dogs. Fun fitness is an awesome part of our dog’s daily life.
On this workshop you will also learn :
- Games to play to Ditch the Food Bowl;
- Ways to transfer games to the big wide world;
- Tips to help your dog to play these games in a way that is BEST for them;
- How to get amazing FOCUS; and
- A list of games to play when it is raining, or snowy or you simply don’t want to go for a walk
This workshop is suitable to everyone…agility dogs, Naughty but Nice dogs, puppies and those super special senior dogs…simply anyone who wants a fantastic relationship with their dog…and anyone who wants their dog to develop into a fit, flexible and strong dog!

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 time specified. Devon Dogs is a Centre of Excellence training facility and we want to ensure all class change overs are smooth and easy. For this reason, can you please ensure you and your dog remain in your vehicle until the trainer is present and ready for you.
We understand it is difficult to guess 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 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
You can find a checklist of what we suggest you bring with you by following this link.

Astro Turf Rules
From January 2019, Devon Dogs will be using a new state-of-the-art astro turf flooring within our training arena.
To keep this fantastic improvement of the Devon Dogs training facilities at its very, very best for the benefit of all of us, we need to follow some super simple rules:
- Outdoor shoes are not to be used in the arena – please bring some indoor shoes to change into.
- Please make sure your dog is dry and clean before entering the arena, particularly their paws. Please also clean off any toys before use.
- Please make sure your dog has toileted outside the arena before entering.
- Please ensure you bring a crate or raised bed, placed on a blanket to catch any missed training treats.
