Back to school

I was back in the classroom last month for a one day seminar delivered by Sian Ryan (of BBC’s “Me & My Dog” fame).

Self Control in Dogs examined the terms – Self Control, Impulsivity & Frustration... looking at what they mean in relation to our dogs and how they can have an impact on the day to day behaviour of the dogs in our care.

We also discussed the difference between self control and owner directed behaviour and effective ways of enabling our dogs to manage themselves. After a morning of theory we were able to watch Sian working with her own dogs and see the theory put into practise.

I left the training venue with not only a greater understanding of the concepts covered but also feeling motivated and inspired after seeing Sian working with her own two dogs Buzz and Woody – who were absolutely adorable (and did kind of steal the show)!
