Are you getting prepared … for National Pet Tricks Day???

Pet Tricks Day started in 2021 and is all about us doing more with our pets – Tricks are a great way to interact with our pets as we can choose tricks best suited to each pet, whether that is a Dog or a Cat or maybe a Rat, Parrot or Duck!

But did you know Tricks can also help with pet safety, help with injury and illness spotting, as well as being a great way to work on husbandry with our pets too!?

🐶 Having tricks our pets love to do with us can help them with mobility, cognitive functions, focus on us to find us if they get stuck somewhere.
🐶 When we work on tricks a few times a week with our pets we start to know how they will do them, what are their favourites etc. This means if they are feeling unwell, have hurt themselves or something unusual is happening we will spot it sooner when our pet doesn’t want to do their favourite trick or try to do it but Cann’t turn, or move a leg, or flap a wing etc.
🐶 Husbandry is also known as cooperative care and Tricks are great for this! Teaching a Give Paw helps us check paws for foreign objects like grass seeds plus makes it easier to trim paws and nails! Teaching a Chin Target can help with checking teeth and gums or evening brushing teeth! Teaching a good stand, down, play bow etc can help while we are grooming or examining our dogs too.

National Pet Tricks Day is on 30th September and we have a LOT in store for your dogs as well as your other pets too! If you want to get involved with this fun themed day we will have ways to take part – right now we are looking for clips of your pets doing their favourite tricks so we can flood the page with them!

Canine First Aid Training completed during May 2022!

Our most recent Canine First Aid Training was hosted by us in May 2022 and run by Dog First Aid – A fabulous afternoon learning about looking after our dogs, understanding how many injuries and accident can be managed before reaching a vets, and of course how we can help our canine clients during our training sessions.

** Covid-19 Update from March 2022: Our In Person Training Services are all running so we have all weekly classes in place along with 1-2-1 training and one off Workshops, plus we are still offering online support and training options to help dogs and their families with a wide range of training and activities. So if you cannot make a regular class, are not local to us or cannot attend an in person class there are many great ways to work with you dogs from home.

We are continuing to observe many CoVid-19 Protocols to help keep our customers and training team safe, despite general restrictions being no longer mandatory. These safety measures include:
* Social Distancing inside and outside – we have smaller size classes to help with this.
* Hand Sanitizing – we have Leucillin Spray available for everyone to use if you do not have your own. Please remember door handlers will still transfer any trace of Covid as well as colds etc. While we are cleaning them regularly and also trying to open then gate for people we still advise cleaning your hands after using the door or gate.
* Training Equipment – we are cleaning our hands before passing equipment to someone but please remember if you use something to ensure it stays out so it can be cleaned afterwards as it may be used in the very next class.

We will continue monitoring government guidelines as well as advise and guidance from Pet Industry Federation and CESG, who are the overriding bodies for Pet Businesses. If you have any questions or concerns please do let us know. We hope to make our training centre a place where everyone attending can feel safe and at ease, knowing we are putting our customers and team safety as a priority.

Dog Training for Essex & Suffolk Ltd share their passion and experience with owners and ultimately encourage a greater understanding between humans and animals. The instructors continually keep up to date with the best techniques, changing legislation, health and safety and research and the services cater for all breeds and all ages. We complete our Canine First Aid CPD training every three years, are fully insured and have insurance or certificates available to be shown on request – we are very proud of our experiences and qualifications and always very happy to show them!
