Autumn and Halloween!!

It’s fast approaching Halloween and we always celebrate this time of year – having fun with our dogs to counteract the darker days!!

We have our Tricks for Tricks Online Halloween Tricks Competition running currently which gives dogs a chance to show off their favourite tricks with a Halloween Twist and there are fabulous themed rosettes up for grabs too! We have 4 classes for photos and videos for free plus a charity class with all entry fees going to Broken Biscuits Dog Charity – please take a look at the information and see if you’d like to take part!!

Halloween Tricks Class:

Saturday 30th October 2021 we are running our annual Halloween Fun Tricks Class! This is in person at our Ardleigh Training Venue and we will be using a combination of Halloween Props and Decorations as part of working on Tricks Training!

Tricks Training provides fun for dogs of all ages, breeds and training levels as we can adjust any trick to suit a dog best, to make safer for puppies or senior dogs and change any props or equipment that might be too high, small or exciting for a dog!! We provide the Halloween Props and everything is cleaned before the session along with trainers using Leucillin Spray to clean hands before handing anything out so there is minimal risk regarding Covid or Colds this time of the year!

If you love Tricks Training and fancy something a little different as a one off contact us for the full details or to book your space online use our Booking System!

Do you have a Senior Dog or a Dog heading towards becoming a Senior?

November is Senior Dogs Awareness Month as well as Senior Pets Adoption Month and we are celebrating by running a host of online and in-person activities aimed at doing more with our Senior Dogs as well as preparing our younger dogs for a more comfortable retirement in the future!

Our In-Person Senior Dogs Fun Class is running at our Ardleigh Premises on Saturday 6th November 2021 from 2pm-4pm – The training isn’t for 2 hour solid but we have allocated some times for breaks and rests so the dogs don’t need to overdo things. This session will include exercises to stimulate the mind and keep the brain function working hard which can in turn help slow down the onset of CCD (Canine Cognitive Dysfunction), as well as gentle physical conditioning exercises to help keep the body stronger and mobile for longer, plus lots of fun too!!

Our introduction to Senior Dog’s Month ensures you won’t miss out on any of the events, free classes, talks etc and is easy to access here:

** Covid-19 Update from 19th July 2021: 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 our CoVid-19 Protocols to help keep our customers and training team safe, including once general restrictions are no longer mandatory. These safety measures include:
* Social Distancing inside and outside – please keep to minimum 2 meters apart including with your training unless Masks are worn.
* 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.
* Face Coverings – we are not asking for Face Coverings to be used continuously for training but do ask that you bring a mask etc with you just in case we need to help you with your dog and need to be close up. We have our own masks with us and spares if needed, as well as spare disposable gloves if you need at all.

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.
