A brand new class! Does your dog disappear when they see the nail clippers coming out? Do they make a sharp exit when you pick up the toothbrush and toothpaste? Husbandry skills are often the last thing we think of teaching until we need to administer eye drops, clean teeth or clip nails!
Enjoy classes from the comfort of your own home, with all the family and none of the hassle. Perfect for dogs of all ages, sensitive dogs or people who’d struggle to focus in a group environment in person. This particular course is a perfect fit for building the necessary foundation skills you need for cooperative care.
Over the six-week course, we will break everything down into bitesize practical chunks for you to work with your dog.
