Re: Newburn, Newcastle, Sunday, MARCH 4th (one week early)

Oh yes
A walk that starts and finishes at a BREWERY I'll say YES (and as you know I am not even a massive drinker)

This is a really nice walk. I will be running another FREE training session for about 10-15 mins before the start 8)

Re: Positive reinforcement. An impossible reality??

The mantra I use is 'reward what you like, ignore the stuff you don't. If you can't ignore (safety etc.) distract. Give plenty of chances to do the right thing, and make sure it's rewarded. So often people forget to reward the dogs good behaviour when it's the 'default', so when the dog is near the...

Re: Growling and aggresion - puppy training

It sounds like a perfectly normal puppy, I wouldn't over analyse...all puppys will try to push their luck to see what is allowed or not. Your puppy should also understand if you want to pick it up there is no problem with that and rather than you back down to the dog, work through it as it appears y...

Re: in the news today - dogs in public spaces

Sadly the type of people that don't pick up and don't control their own dogs won't take any notice of the dog bans.
