Well done everyone, your dogs did you proud.
Thanks again to our amazing examiner who makes everyone feel at ease.
So congratulations - Minnie, Buster, Bella, Billy, Shadow, Ellie and Coco. Silver is the next stop

I just wanted to say a great big 'Thank you' to everyone who attended and took part in our 'Fun Dog Show' today at the Auckley show.
All the proceeds are going to be donated to the English Bull Terrier Rescue.
Today was an absolute great day with an amazing number of people entering the 10 classes we had.
This made my job judging very difficult indeed as I could only award 3 dogs in each class a rosette so there were many dogs who unfortunately were not placed, if I had more rosettes I would have awarded many more deserving dogs.
Every dog I saw today was adorable, I was in doggy heaven, what a great job to have; meeting and greeting all these wonderful dogs and their owners.
Can I also say a 'GREAT BIG THANK YOU' to my Treibball demonstration team - Linda with Sadie, Marie with Maisey,
Bill with Chloe, Gill with Scooby and Rebecca with Lola. You all put on a great demonstration and your dogs did you proud. It was great to watch!!!!

 
GREAT NEWS -
Congratulations to the 'Silver Level Award' owners and dogs who all PASSED on Tuesday night.
I think you worked hard and should be proud of yourselves and your dogs. You even managed a 2 minute stay with the added distractions of the annoying fly!!!!!!
Well done!!!!




CONGRATULATIONS
- To all the BRONZE LEVEL last night who ALL successfully passed!
Well done everyone, you all trained really hard and your dogs did you proud!
Remember training doesn't stop here, Silver and then Gold!!

IMPORTANT NOTICE -
FUN BRAIN GAMES is ideal for :- 
1)All those less physically active dogs, and lets not forget owners to! 2)Dogs that are too young for agility but have boundless energy, so I could mental workout is ideal!
3)Dogs who simple just love using their 'nose' and 'brain'!
4)Meet new friends - both dogs and humans!
And most importantly - !!!!!!!
5)Any dog or anyone who just simply wants to have lots of FUN!!!!!!!!
 


A WOOFLY DAY
Today 3 of my 'Raw Instinct' Psychology Dogs - HONEY, OZZY & KIKI celebrate their birthdays.
I am a very lucky person to own these amazing dogs, not only do they bring so much love, laughter and joy to our family they play an amazing part in helping other dogs overcome their fears or excitement.
The birthday trio have enjoyed the day by getting some extra birthday kisses and hugs, going for a lovely birthday walk together, enjoyed lapping up the sunshine, having a scrumptious raw diet meal and will finish the day with an extra large edible treat.
Woofly Birthday to you, Woofly Birthday to you,
Woofly Birthday dear HONEY, OZZY & KIKI,
Woofly Birthday to you!


 

Received a very lovely 'Thank you' card for one of my clients today who I have been working with for the past few months. They have now gone solo after both they and their lovely dog have worked so hard and achieved so much.
The card has the most adorable photo of their beloved dog on the front and back and has a special meaningful message inside.
This card has made my day.
Thank you Gretta, Sue and Andy.




REMEMBER, REMEMBER THE 5TH OF NOVEMBER IS A TIME FOR HUMANS - NOT DOGS!!!!
 
Preparations for your dogs tonight.
1) Take your dog for a walk when it is still daylight and well before any fireworks are likely to begin. (don't worry if your dog misses his/her evening walk- 1 miss won't harm your dog, but taking them out at the wrong time could take a long time to overcome!)
2) Keep doors and windows closed, curtains shut.
3) Check your microchip details are up to date - a scared dog who gets out is more likely to be reunited if they are microchipped.
4) Give your dog a den to hide in if they so desire.
5)Play music with a repetitive beat to help mask the sound.
6) Do not comfort an anxious dog as this can escalate the behaviour even more.
7) Never punish your dog - it's not their fault that they are scared. Loud bangs, flashing lights, burning fires - only a human can love these!
 
Please keep your beloved dogs safe tonight!
 

It give me great pleasure to announce that everyone passed their GCDS - 'Silver Level Award' today. Yippee! 

So congratulations to Julie & Barney, Gill & Scooby, Pam & Chloe, Michelle & Ledley.

I am proud of each and everyone of you and your dogs are a wonderful credit to you.

Yet again we had a wonderful examiner who made everyone feel at ease.

Next the 'Gold Level'.
We had a very special and extremely rare visitor to the Raw Instinct Training Centre today called 'Sanchez' who is actually a working 'Harris Hawk'. 
Sanchez works with a spocker and a springer - I hear from their human owners they make a great working team. I have also seen footage of them training/working very hard.
So 'Thank you' to Victoria Thackstone and Gary for bringing Sanchez to meet us.
