“I have been attending this course along with the agility classes. My dog Joey is very easily distracted and he has a terrible habit of lunging at cars and some dogs. When I started Agility, I did think it was going to be quite simple, and straightforward, I never realised the importance of focus. In this four-week intensive course, I have learnt all about proximity and the importance of rewarding, behaviour in particular non-behaviour, and how to keep Joey calm, and me from anticipating his behaviour. I have learnt so much about Joey and myself, we have a firm bond, the games are fun for both dog and handler, and are so easy to take out of the course and play at home. We now play a game every day as part of our daily routines. Our bond is so much stronger, because of this our Agility work is improving, we have such a strong bond, He really is my best friend.
Katrina is a natural, she is patient and really helps you to understand your dog and going at their pace, the importance of having fun and keeping it real.
Thank you Katrina” Emma Stephenson
