Due to COVID restrictions, training will mainly be outside. Thank you for your understanding.

Be Fair to Your Dog by Kelly Murrell!

  1. Ask yourself: does your dog REALLY know what is being asked of them?
  2. If you are seeing some failure, take it as feedback, take it onboard and make a plan.
  3. Acknowledge that maybe you moved things on too fast, but don’t beat yourself up about it!
  4. Don’t guilt trip yourself!
  5. Look at it this way; if you always feel warm, fuzzy and comfortable when your training your dog, it is likely that you aren’t moving forward.
  6. So, some failure isn’t bad, but be fair to your dog and know that you just need to build the skill more and maybe re-visit grassroots level.
  7. Going back over something isn’t going backwards!

Visit our website for more info on ways we can help: www.devondogs.co.uk or email us at contact@devondogs.co.uk if you have any questions. If you’d like to combine a holiday with dog training, check out our training packages HERE. We can also give you Zoom Training if you live a long way from Bowerland. Or maybe you’d like a Consult Call first to get a trainer’s recommendation on what’s best for you!
