Manage your dog around livestock workshop

Friday, 29 April '22   10am – 3pm BST
Brookfield Farm, Sproston Green, CW4 7LN
10 spaces available



As a specialist trainer for a breed that is bred to chase sheep I feel there is a gap in the industry when it comes to safely instruct owners how to avoid their dog to become a chaser!

πŸ”₯ Are you worried your dog is going to drag you everywhere when walking near sheep?
πŸ”₯ Do you feel like your recall is not strong enough when distractions are present and especially when sheep and cows are grazing?
πŸ”₯ Do you asking yourself if you are going to be able to enjoy your dog while walking on the moors?
πŸ”₯ Do you want to make sure to cover all possible scenario and know how to avoid your Border Collie to become a chaser?
πŸ”₯ Would you like gentle exposure to sheep to allow you training your dog to ignore, come back when called and walk nicely on the lead past sheep?

⚠️ If you have a puppy or a young dog and you want to make sure you cover all the basics and take them on a walk on moors and farmland without the stress of your dog pulling you everywhere or yanking on the lead as they can see sheep or other animals and also having the chance to practise recall when sheep are present, keep reading!!!!!

I'm going to offer you a training day where you can be exposed to the right tools and training plan and show you how to teach your dog to:

πŸ‘‰ Have a fast recall even if movement is involved
πŸ‘‰ having a good down at distance so you can stop your dog if needed
πŸ‘‰ being able to ignore sheep grazing so you can walk past them without your dog going crazy
πŸ‘‰ what is impulse control and how can we train it using tools easily available to us
πŸ‘‰ how to channel prey drive on to us instead of the environment
πŸ‘‰ welfare of sheep and other live stock
πŸ‘‰ how to make sure your dog is satisfied and their needs are met, so they can be happy even if they don't work sheep all day

And guess what? We will be training around REAL SHEEP! A nice friendly flock of old ram and possibly some more lively ewes will be helping us to put the training into practise.

PLEASE BE AWARE: This is NOT a rehabilitation workshop for dogs that have chased already or nipped sheep or other livestock. Although I'm happy to have you and your dog in this workshop to understand better what you can do to avoid it from happening again, your dog will not learn to be off lead around sheep without chasing them.

It's all about safety, understanding of both dog and stock welfare and giving you the chance of training around sheep that won't just disappear as soon as they see your dog.

The workshop could be followed by a class on a weekday evening in spring.
