2nd October Brooksbank Community Centre
Trick Training and class demonstration
Unveiling of the new pilot training scheme that is kicking off in Dundee... lots pictures and updates to follow
21st & 22nd August
Although we didn't have a camera person that day, and nor did we have time for happy-snapping, we were all amazed at how well the dogs coped with the crowds and the noise - we could not hear ourselves give commands over the loudspeaker and the music, but because the dogs work with hand signals and body language, no one would have known that we (the trainers) were nervous about it. Great day out, can't wait for next year!

My first time at Crufts and what a place! It's bigger than you imagine, and after 4 days there were still things we didn't get to see. I was on stage training with 'Foxy', one of Mary Ray's border collies. Mary Ray is a famous clicker trainer and brought Heelwork to music into the public domain.
