It just isn’t working!  Do you have days like this?  It feels like you are taking 2 steps forward and 3 steps back.  All the hard work you have been putting into your training and your goals seem even further out of reach.  We have days like these as well and so do our students.  Students that train with us regularly for weekly and monthly classes or regular workshops have a super support network.  Quite often we cannot see our own progress while the people we surround ourselves with in classes do see the progress being made.  Like minded students are an amazing resource!

This past week we really enjoyed the support students in our classes have provided each other from sharing treats forgotten at home to noticing progress being made and providing encouraging words.  Using the power of games we continued to work on having fun with our dogs.  We used boundary games ready for when visitors arrive, disengagement games for walking out and about, scent work ready for games indoors and confidence games for upcoming fireworks season.  Our agility students continued to grow skills and we ended the week with Championship Judge Martin Cavill joining us for some super course work.  We are very lucky to have the very best trainers and students join us at Devon Dogs.

If you want to learn more about the games we LOVE to play with our dogs, join us for one of our workshops below…we have a game for that raining (or sunny) day!  Here are some highlights for events we are holding for the next couple of months, and as always you can join us at anytime for a 121 bespoke training package!
