I am thrilled (despite the 300 mile round trip) that I was able to attend the Kennel Club building at Stoneleigh to collected an award from The Agility Club that my little man earned through competing in 2015. He obtained runner up position in the Grade 2 agility league. I am over the moon and never expected that when we started our agility journey that this is something we would achieve. Throughout the year Dexter has moved up a few more grades and is now in Grade 4 and continues to do his best, including napping on the sofa which is his expertise. I’m looking forward to more training this year and seeing what this year brings.
Well my first full week back at work and I loved every second of it, not only was I up to my normal daytime activities of walking/pet sitting and 1-2-1 training but classes started up again this week. After a month away from classes all those returning dogs did amazingly well. I then had two brand new classes start up with lots of new dogs and owners to meet.
I got to meet some new dogs and owners who are in need of daytime services like walking. I am happy arrange a meet and greet with you and your dog at a time to suit where we can both meet and discuss your needs, which of course is free of charge.
I have also arranged a date for the first workshop of the year. So if anyone is interested in attending the clicker workshop it will be held on Wednesday 27th January in Rusper. Please email me at email@example.com for full details.
I have also found a suitable first aid course which I will be attending in February. This is a one day course to learn all of the below so t...
This week has been a nice gentle start into the New Year as training classes do not start again until next week. With all the rain we have had recently there is a lot of water about. It’s so wet that thankfully the mud is washing right off the pups at the moment, as soon as it starts to dry out a little bit it will become all sticky so that will be extra fun.
This week I have been enjoying a number of walks around Horsham, my favourite one has been around Chesworth Farm. Although it is pretty boggy in some areas once you get up on the hill, I just love the view.
I’ve looked after some wonderful dogs for walks, home visits, pet taxi and 1-2-1 training.
However, the biggest break through this week is to do with my little rescue girl. For the first time since I’ve had her (nearly two years) she went to the vet and was able to be touched by the vet without a muzzle on. For those that have dogs that have a similar struggle with the vet you may be able to appreciate the sheer landma...
The start of a New Year for Paws-itivity with lots of ideas to keep the year interesting for you all. As you expect I will be continually increasing my professional development. First on the list will be to complete a first aid course for our canine friends. This has been top of my list for some time but I have yet to find one that is suitable. I will of course be continuing my work and training towards my Kennel Club Accreditation. This is a continually ongoing task to build my portfolio but I have the support of a local mentor who is keeping me on the right track.
Along with the paperwork side of Paws-itivity I hope to increase the number of training classes I hold to include specific workshops and even hope to find a venue to hold agility training. If there is anything that you would like to know more about, or even suggest any training options then please don’t hesitate to contact me as I’ll be more than happy to assist.
