Fun For Our Cockapoo Friends

"Cockapoo Capers" 

  • Sunday 21 October 11.15pm at The Winlaton Centre
  • Sunday 2 December 12.30pm at The Winlaton Centre

A brand new group for Summer 2018 specifically designed to meet the breed needs of both the "Cocker" and the "Poo".  Relaxed and social sessions where you'll meet other owners and participate in a range of fun activities and training games that you can replicate at home.  We'll look at how you can use play, enrichment and training to provide essential stimulation, give them a "hobby" and fulfil their natural instincts.

All spaniel-poodle crosses welcome!

Places are limited and you must book in advance.

Thank you so much for a really fun learning experience for Dexter and I. We both learnt a lot which we will continue to work on at home.   It was brilliant hosting the session for cockapoos as it gave me a chance to socialise with other owners and to discuss and share experiences, which I found invaluable! I loved your training style as it was really cheery and you were great with the dogs giving them good vibes of encouragement in a very positive way!

Hi Karen and Phil Thank you so much for yet another fabulous training course. We had a great time learning new ways of looking after our puppy and with your help she is growing into a confident and happy dog. She loved the mental stimulation and was always excited when we pulled into the car park to start another session! Looking forward to the gold training course next!

Force Free Trick Training

“Let's Trick Together" 

  • Trick training is all about teamwork – you and your dog work together to achieve something great!
  • It improves your dogs ability to learn and try new things – you are helping your dog learn how to learn
  • It is a great bonding tool and teaches your dog that it is great to learn with you.
  • It is a chilled out way for reactive or nervous dogs and owners to spend time together.
  • It is great for confidence building as dogs start to figure things out for themselves. Praising and rewarding them really helps them feel good too.
  • It is fun and rewarding for both you and your dog!
Wasn't sure what to expect & thought only certain breeds would manage it - total misconception. Daisy (Shar Pei pup) and I had a brilliant time. 
The emphasis on the day was all about having FUN with our dogs - and we certainly had that! Daisy loved every minute and had a smile on her face all day.  If you're looking to have more fun time with your dogs don't hesitate to try this.
