Thought I’d look into attending a residential dog training course (me plus dog). Like the sound of a dedicated week (or so) of training with good instructors, to work on things in a controlled environment. Willing to travel, but Scotland or North England preferred.
Anyone attended any or know of any good ones?

cj…why think of taking him out of the environment…you just have to take him back,…back to that criteria…am here if you need meSeptember 28, 2008 at 1:14 pm #76393AnonymousGuest
Why on earth do you not get Bev up for one of her one to one five day courses it would be cheaper than what you are looking at they range between 400 to 600 hundred the sort of best are the 600 Bev is a lot less than that think she’s about 200ish plus you get one to one
Think you need to get on sorting this dog out like more doing and less thinking IMO

most residential dog training is “dog only”

Depends what you mean by residential. Wagmore do fabulous weeks but you have to find your own accommodation in nearby B & Bs etc.September 29, 2008 at 1:03 pm #76396kizkiznobiteMember

you have a web site for these claire? If its acceptable to my course i’m wanting to do sheepdog training as one of my disciplines :yes: maybe you could pm it to me so i don’t hijack cj’s thread too much ;DSeptember 30, 2008 at 10:40 am #76399
Just thought it would be good to get away for a few days. Away from environment that may be causing pooch (and me!) to stress out. Away from roads and cars where we can work on basic skills, building our relationship and maybe tackle his aggression issues in a controlled environment. The Wagmore weeks look interesting.
Also, I’m still looking for a behaviourist/trainer I can work with locally. I’d like to find some-one who has their own dogs we can work with, to have one-to-one sessions with, on a regular basis, and who can follow-up after giving us stuff we can do ourselves. I have a contact I’ll be following up this week, fingers crossed.

Thanks Sweetypye, yes I’ve seen Yvonne for a couple of sessions, it was very helpful but she said we needed regular sessions and she was unable to take on any new clients due to other commitments. I have another contact I’m following up, will be meeting him soon.
