What a super fun week we had at Devon Dogs!  We hosted Lukas Aigner for some agility supercharging with fast courses and handling!  Classes continued as we built skills from handling, contacts, weaves, disengagement, recall, loose lead walking, calmness…we fit as much as we possibly can into each class!  The week ended with our Super Summer Series on Saturday with students really working hard on their agility skills from foundation recalls through tunnels to more complex handling manoeuvres.  Friday, Saturday and Sunday were all about Find It with 3-days of working on search skills and a fun scrabble competition on Sunday to put together some of the skills learned.  We love search work for all of our dogs from Naughty but Nice to our agility stars, it is a great skill to teach and we use it in many ways!  With the warm summer we have had, search work can be done indoors, hiding a scent pot in the house and tasking your dog with looking for it.  Outdoors it is a super way for our dogs to focus on a task in a distracting environment and we can always put our dogs skills to the test and have them find our keys we accidentally dropped while out on a walk!

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!
