Hi everyone, hope you're all recovering nicely from all the festivities. I'm having to close for a few days because of storm damage, flooding and saturated grounds. It's not great but hopefully in a few days it will dry out a little. Our Scent Weekend is unaffected because it's off site but after heavy rain and today's storm it's making all training areas unworkable, but hey ho, never mind these things happen, back when it's dried out. I will text confirmation messages over the next couple of days for Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th.. see you all soon..

The first in the next series for 2024
Waverley-Foundation Scent Detection Workshops
In our last session we introduced some subtle changes that had significant impact and improved the way things were done.

I'm really looking forward to working with you and your dogs.
I keep saying it 'I love it', it's great fun and last year all dogs done brilliantly some are so good they could compete and win
Trails & Competitions, including a couple that are suitable for Operational Roles.

We do this for fun to give every dog the chance to do something that is totally natural and very self rewarding, but for those of you who get hooked your world is your oyster.

Can't wait, book now as we Sell Out every time πŸ«ΆπŸΆπŸ•πŸ©

Just wanted to say

Thanks for all your handwork, friendship & support not just for 2023, but always.

We've achieved a lot this year, Scent Detection Workshops have proved a real success. Classes, puppy, 121 and rescue continue to thrive.

Frank, despite his frailty has a passion for life, Bea, such a sweet girl, Coppa….little darling. Pearl has taken to work brilliantly and Willow is sharp and punchy, but what a dog and then came Creed a beautiful, kind, empathetic dog, has something special….

You make what I do a real joy and pleasure, I never tire of training, it’s not a job it’s a passion and it’s all thanks to all those wonderful dogs I have loved and lost, trained, rescued and more and YOU.

So whatever you do this Christmas, make it a good one and enjoy every single moment.

We're back Wednesday 27th for more fun, sniffing and a little bit of the usual mayhem…..,

My pack and I wish you and your family, your fur babies to, a very Merry Christmas & A Happy 2024

Photos, just three of the best, loved, lost and missed but my greatest teachers and memories of pure joy.....

I am not going to comment on my personal view on this subject, accept to add where in God's name did we get this so wrong. But I am sharing as the best way to silence your critics is lead by example, be a good ambassador for the breed, adhere to the new regulations and continue to have the best relationship with your dog. I'm going to leave it there......

Preparing for the XL Bully Ban 🐾

From the 31st of December 2023, it will be against the law to:
◼️ Sell an XL Bully
◼️ Abandon a XL Bully or let it stray
◼️ Give away an XL Bully
◼️ Breed from an XL Bully
◼️ Have an XL Bully in public without a lead and muzzle.

From the 1st of February 2024 it will be a criminal offence to own a XL Bully dog in England and Wales, unless your dog has a certificate of exemption.

To keep an XL Bully dog it must be:
β—Ό Microchipped
β—Ό Kept on a lead and muzzled at all times when in public
β—Ό Kept in a secure place so it cannot escape
β—Ό Neutered

As the owner, you must also:
β—Ό Be over 16 years old
β—Ό Take out third party public liability insurance against your dog injuring other people.
β—Ό Be able to show the Certificate of Exemption when asked by a police officer or a council dog warden, either at the time or within 5 days.

It's that wonderful time of year when goodwill to all men is about to fall upon us.
I'm busy up to Tuesday 19th December and apart from doing some private scent work session Saturday 23rd I'm looking to do what I have never done before and take some time off.

I'll post dates under separate post, but it's been the most amazing year Dog Training and there's plenty more to come in 2024

The face of an angel. My boy Creed has done some amazing stuff in the first year of his life and at the expense of some basic obedience training as I have put my energy into making him as environmentally sound and robust as I can.

He's now ready to progress and we are working on a new course tailored around this adorable dogs personality, his traits, his obsessions and his dependency.

The course will be ready in the New Year for others to enjoy. It's a course with a massive difference from what we have done before, it's environmentally challenging, problem solving and different approach to the more well known phrase of classical & operant conditioning.

His first time out today, brilliant. You don't know what you have until you turn a different corner.

Great, great dog.....

Last weekend we completed yet another fantastic
Scent Detection Weekend Workshop.
The standard was outstanding, the commitment, the bond, the handling skills of the very highest quality.
I implemented some subtle changes with ease and transition to a new scent for some of the dogs.
Well done to everyone who attended as you can see from the photos it's an inclusive activity that any dog, an age can do.
Alfie, what a dog, Rocky good enough for operational work, Toby Tripod dog made it look easy and the MB pups and Ada, incredible. Tucker is just out there doing his stuff like a pro. Labs Mom and daughter off the chart, Cruz searches with such grace, Oben first timer searched with ease and Bea forgets the world when she's searching, Briar a natural and Mali lowering the bar and staying calm brings out the very best in the very clever dog and Morley focused and clear....to name but a few.
I love it could teach this morning, noon and night, I am as hooked as my students, fabulous

29/11/2023

I don't often post on issues regarding training, training methods and equipment, but I wanted to post a short piece on Breed Specific Training. When looking for a dog to join you and/or your family be clear about the type of breed you're looking for. Just because you like the look of a dog is not a good enough reason. There is a reason why labradors are labradors and German Shepherds are German Shepherds. The GSD generally comes with quiet a low threshold disposition the Labrador is generally a much higher threshold with the attitude that anyone entering your home uninvited they must be there to make a fuss of them and take them for a walk, however I'm talking in general terms, there is always the exception. So, be aware of the breed your getting, breed specific training does not apply until you have established the basics unless your getting a low threshold dog that has been breed for purpose and will go on to work.
Choose your, trainer, training aids and methods wisely.
In memory of B ###x

Once again, all sold out. These sessions are very popular, great fun and great for your dog/s. Unlike obedience training where you're teaching unnatural behaviours 'Scentwork' is the most natural thing to our dogs, they do it for most of their time.
Can't wait, really looking forward to seeing you all, more dates to follow.....

As I continue to learn I will be making a few very subtle changes to the way we operate to improve what we do. I will brief you all on the changes before you start your session.

I just love the sessions, they are full on but the adrenalin keeps me going and each time we do these sessions I learn something new.

I had the great privilege to spend a day with one of the best, former head of dept Surrey/Sussex Service Dog Unit, awesome, learnt so much.

Some thoughts about these Scent Detection Workshops, obedience dog training is great for dogs but it's not natural, but Scent and Tracking is, so ask yourself who is the real teacher πŸ‘

They fill up fast, taking bookings now.

02/11/2023

I have had the great honour of being a guest speaker at
Brookmead Veterinary Surgery Puppy Parties, for nearly fifteen years. It's never been about promoting my business but all about sharing knowledge and promoting responsible dog ownership in a fair, fun way and looking at things through your dogs eyes, not human. Over the years I have worked with a number of veterinary nurse clinicians, all who have been brilliant.
I was there last nigh I just want to say once again, thank you for having me and a massive congratulations to Jess who headed up the team last night, a real star, you done a great job, well done. See you next time πŸ™

Lots of fun with four of the pack at the park Park For Paws Coppa didn't want to be photographed! Alone cow amongst the sheep and Creed for nearly an hour never let go of his big red ball. I'm so impressed with Park for Paws they have invested so much for the comfort, benefit and security of it's users and now they have installed a bay where you can wash your dogs paws if need be. Fabulous.

Once again what an incredible Waverley-Scent Detection Weekend Workshop.
Thank you to each and everyone of you, amazing dogs, amazing people.
I say it time and time again, all dogs can do this, any age, any breed, any issue. If your environment is conducive to learning, you'll succeed.
I just love it and watching these amazing dogs from beginner to advanced , is a privilege.
The Workshop began with the happiest staffi I have ever met, Tripod Toby (pic below) and Ria belonging to the wonderful Hazel from Brookmead Surgery Brookmead Veterinary Surgery and after sixteen hours of scent detection ended with Tallis thirteen and a half years old (pics below) outstanding....in between we had so many amazing dogs, but must mention Mable young Visla who literally searched from above....
Well done incredible, amazing, wonderful, how better to spend your weekend..

Please don't pay to much attention to the headings I can adapt to suit and be inclusive at different stages.

The beauty about Scent Work is all dogs can do it and when I get a chance I'll post a short video of Toby the three legged, Tirpods dog who makes it look easy.....

24/08/2023

It takes a good couple of days for me to come down from the high after fourteen hours of tutoring Scent Detection, but I love it and this weekend was no exception. We had a wide variety of dogs including Siberian Husky Cruz such a natural so good and handled beautifully by his owner and Mable 11 month old Visla, stunning. Rolo the adolescent cockapoo who went from sky rocket to intense determination and Raven black lab this girl is good enough imo to be a fully fledged service dog, I have seen her work several times so impressive. And, to everyone else who attended what a great job, you make what I do a real pleasure and joy. Emma Dearsley and Kathie you're both stars and who could not be in awe of Bonnie and Darcy. There will be more Scent Detection Classes coming up in September, can't wait, but I must mention my own dogs as well, Willow the awesome demo dog who is the inspiration behind all this and Creed, eight months old and fully of scent who enters the training area handled by a different person every week, takes no notice of me, does the job hits the target and leaves, phenomenal.

19/08/2023

Enchanting, amazing, incredible. Bonnie with her dog Darcy. This was a particularly difficult search as it was compromised by problems solving elements. My goodness Bonnie and Darcy demonstrated perfectly how to do it without any problem whatsoever, fabulous left us all in in admiration πŸΎπŸΎπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸΎπŸΎπŸ’œπŸ’œ
