Puppy Conference

28/01/18


Last weekend Kate, Gemma and I went to a Puppy Conference in Coventry. I hear you ask how can you talk about puppies for 3 days! I only did two days but each day consisted of six one hour lectures. Definitely brain overload but fascinating insights into research in puppy development by How puppies are trained as medical detection and bio detention Dogs and how Dogs can help veterans with post traumatic stress disorder also innovative puppy classes and clicker trained gundogs and obedience Dogs. There are so many wonderful people showing how our puppies can reach their full potential. We had a very moving talk about Puppy Farms and the work being done to eliminate them. Look out for Lucy’s Law which may see the beginning of the end for these terrible places.

Puppy classes for this term are full and progressing well and we are almost booked up for next term. Training is going well although agility has had to be cancelled because of the weather so Kate has organised some indoor agility training at the Doghouse this weekend to do some basics especially for the beginners. 

Keep training.
