Perfect for anyone who wants to take their dog sport training to the next level. All abilities, training levels, and dog sport disciplines are welcome.
The session will be held at St. Andrew’s Church, Elmbank Terrace, Irvine, Ayrshire, KA12 0SG. There is ample car parking on site.
This workshop will introduce you to the basics of training body awareness for the sporting dog. Using fun games and exercises, you will learn how to develop your dog’s body awareness, increase their strength and fitness, and work on motivation and focus.
We will also work on bond building, impulse control, confidence building, and management of dog arousal level.
You will leave the session with a new tool kit of training exercises that can be used alongside your existing dog sport training regime to get your dog fit, flexible, strong, and raring to go!
You will need:
- - plenty of tasty training treats (chopped up cooked chicken/turkey and cocktail sausages work really well)
- - a water bowl
- - a mat for your dog
- - 2-3 of your dog’s favourite toys (no balls please)
- - a pad and pen
- - please wear comfortable clothing
