Cani-Core Eglinton Park, Ayrshire

Cani-Core is going outdoors!

This session will be suitable for newcomers and experienced Cani-Corers alike. All abilities, training levels and dog sport disciplines are welcome.

Eglinton Country Park, Irvine, KA12 8TA – meeting point is the new car park. Enter through the main entrance, you will pass a car park on your right hand side – continue past this to larger car park through the stone pillars.

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 & water for after. If it’s a mild day you may want to carry this with you

– 2-3 of your dog’s favourite toys

–  please wear comfortable clothing and footwear suitable for the Ayrshire weather

    Nicola is a member of the absoluteDogs Pro Dog Trainer programme. She is part of three times Crufts Heelwork to Music Champion Heather Smith’s Heelwork to Music display team.

    Nicola says, “I love working with my own dogs, and I love teaching others how to work with their dogs. I love seeing the bond between handler and dog grow and develop as they learn together. I am passionate about human and dog fitness, and developing fun ways for dog and human teams to work and grow together.”
