This 2-day course is designed to increase awareness of the issues surrounding stress in dogs. It is important to appreciate both the physical and mental impact of stress in dogs and to understand the contributory factors. From dogs that have difficulty concentrating, to those that become sound sensitive or reactive with other dogs, people or objects, it is important to examine the issues that result in this behaviour and to offer strategies to help them live a more balanced life. Often just a few minor changes can make a huge impact to the dog’s ability to cope. Cost: £125.00

Natural Abilities Dog Centred Holiday with Sheila Harper Ltd. (Staffs)
Many complain their dogs never seem to be satisfied no matter how much they walk them, or that their dog’s demanding even if they give lots of attention. Then there are those dogs that tend to do their own thing when out, going hunting or chasing. Alternatively, what about those dogs that need rest or peace and quiet but where you feel they are under-stimulated? We may be able to help with alternative canine activities that don’t take a lot of effort, but help your dog learn more appropriate pastimes. 5-Day practical and theory course. Cost: £350.00.
