This will take place on a secure field to replicate a park environment rather than in an artificial indoor environment, so that what is taught is a transferable skill and your dog will come back when out on walks outside. The workshop will be outside, irrespective of the weather! Handlers will need to ensure that they are dressed appropriately for the weather conditions, including footwear.
Dogs must be good with other dogs and people to attend this course. Please don’t feed your dog prior to the class as it may cause a digestive upset as dogs will be running around and we may need them to be motivated to work for treats!
If your dog wears a harness please bring them wearing it.
Payment will be required before the day to secure a place. If you are interested please contact Caroline at firstname.lastname@example.org.
