2016 – Whats been happening

Well …….. Each year I plan to update the latest news page but find that sitting at the computer and completing all the admin tasks just doesnt hold my attention 🙂   I guess I would much rather be doing the hands on training and walking Stanley in the forest and along the beach.   We are now running 3 classes every Tuesday evening and feel privileged that our classes continue to go from strength to strength with new pupils and of course all our old faithful clients who come back to see us each time a new puppy arrives.

2012 Round up

So, we reach the end of another year and it has been a year of mixed emotions.  Lessons have continued to go from strength to strength with both classes being at full capacity for much of the year.  So, going forward we are piloting a  6 week puppy course starting on Monday 7th January 2013, along with the usual 2 classes on a Tuesday evening.  If you would like more details please email or telephone me.

On a more sad note, 2 households mourned the passing of our old boys.  for Helen, Bobby aged 15, and for me, Brae aged 13. I feel very privileged to have been Brae’s handler.  He taught me more about dog behaviour and human interaction than any book  has done.  He will be greatly missed by the family and everyone at training.  But …… on a more positive note the Munro/Duffy household is getting used to puppyhood again with the arrival of Stanley!  Harley, at nearly 14 is being very tolerant and doing a great job of teaching him the house rules.  Lets hope my training is as great as Harleys!
