It has been a lovely bank holiday weekend in the UK!  Sunshine and more sunshine!  We are winning for sure as it is lovely weather to be outside with our dogs.  How have you spent your weekend with your four legged friends?  We did some out and about in Exeter, playing games in a car park and using conversation starters to work on the dogs being comfortable and confident in a novel environment.  We played boundary games, orientation from distraction, scatter feeding, middle, magic hand plus a few more fun games our dogs love and enjoy.  All of this with traffic driving past the carpark, people paying for their parking tickets next to the van, a helicopter flying over, all of the dogs did super well and we had so much fun!

Our classes worked out and about and are growing their skills and helping their dogs rehearse what they want out on walks.  It is great to take the games on the road and this help dogs build confidence with new situations, disengagement from people, sheep, dogs, smells (you name it!), calmness and being sensible so there is no over excitment at being out on a walk whether that is the beach or a town center!

We would love to see what you have done with your dog over the bank holiday weekens, pop a picture in the comments of this post on our Facebook Page.
