Why does my dog ...?

Date:
16 February 2014
Cost:
£70 inc. home-made lunch
Time:
10 - 4.30

A look into the dog’s mind and motivations. From a dog’s eye view of the world, to help owners to understand why their dog behaves as s/he does.

The course will focus on effective ways for humans to communicate with their dogs.

The course will look at the evolution of the dog and the effects of domestication to help understand the nature of the relationship between humans and canines.

Characteristic temperaments and associated behaviours of common breeds of dog will be part of the discussion with the opportunity to ask plenty of questions.

The practical element of the course will allow those people attending with their dogs to engage in reward-based training activities and to try out a variety of techniques to provide mental stimulation, reduce boredom and frustration, and to help their dog really want to work with them.  Those attending without their dogs will have the benefit of the instruction, without the distraction of their dog!

Places available:

A few places for owners, but sorry NO DOG-PLACES LEFT.
