I got to make a delivery of goodies to Pat’s dog training school yesterday and I just wanted to say how wonderful it is. Bronte and I have done three years of dog training in London but this was so much better and excellent value for money.
The classes focussed on practical situations, like how to get your dog safely in and out of a car whilst maintaining control. They have introduced prams and mobility scooters to the classes, which in my experience are both things that some dogs have issues with, as well as covering the basics of obedience. The best bit of all was that I got to cuddle some wonderfully friendly, well rounded dogs and quite a few of them I recognised as rescues from Mutts. I spoke to some lovely responsible owners who were supportive and encouraging to each other.
Pat does not run dog school as a drill sergeant but uses a lot of humour to get the best out of the dogs and owners. This school is for dogs of any age and ability and I would highly recommend it to anyone who has a new dog member of the family or just wants to work on their obedience and relationship with their dog.
