Open Paw - The Kennel Program with Kelly Dunbar and Clare Williams (Yorks)
Imagine walking into an animal shelter where all is quiet and it smells good. The dogs are peacefully, lounging on beds chewing away on delectable food-stuffed chew toys or sitting calmly at the front of their kennels wagging 'Hello' at every passer by. This is a shelter where people come for miles, clamouring to adopt the friendly, well-trained residents. This is an Open Paw shelter. Find out more from the originator of the scheme and the head of NAWT about putting it into practise.

Natural Abilities Dog Centred Holiday with Sheila Harper Ltd. (Staffs)

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.
