Last Chance To Book Training

There are a few places left on the CReDO training week in Broadstairs, Kent.

Choose from a morning puppy session (1 hour) or morning or afternoon sessions for adult dogs (3 hours). Sessions will run from Monday, August 17th to Friday, August 21st inclusive.

Learn how to work with your dog to achieve good heel work, food manners, recall and a host of other achievements. Sessions are limited to ten participants and there will be plenty of time for individual and group work and questions.

Come and learn from an experienced trainer and share experiences with other dog owners in a friendly, co-operative environment.

See Broadstairs Training Week for details.

Responsible Dog Ownership at Chertsey Show

Just back from a fabulous weekend at Chertsey Show. A big thank you to the organisers for making it such a well run and enjoyable event (aided this year by not having torrential rain on the second day). Especial thanks to the announcements made throughout the day reminding owners not to leave their dogs in cars (yes, people still do this even in the baking temperatures that we experienced last weekend), to pick up after their dogs and to keep dogs on leads and under control in the countryside.

On the latter, a calf was exhibited that had been mauled by a loose dog. Thankfully recovered but at huge cost to the farmer, never mind the trauma, mental and physical, suffered by the poor calf.

Events such as Chertsey, the only proper agricultural show within the M25, attract a range of visitors and are an excellent opportunity to remind dog owners of their responsibilities.

Put it in your diary for next year!
