After using Poston Mill as a winter venue, I was asked by the owners if I’d be willing to carry on with my own training sessions. I decided to h0ld an obedience & freestyle class once a month to see what the take-up would be. I’m pleased to say that my first class was a great success.
We concentrated on building some obedience work and incorporated some freestyle moves. Jenny and Jumble were naturals at the freestyle and picked up the movements really quickly – a future candidate for Britain’s Got Talent, maybe? Natasha did some fabulous loose-lead walking with Rufus. He was totally focussed on her which is no mean feat for a spaniel in an open field! Heather and Ben did a really steady wait and their recall was the best I’ve ever seen them do.
The immediate feedback was that everyone had fun and I was asked to increase to fortnightly classes so my training schedule now reflects the new timetable. I had a fantastic time and really enjoyed the session in a beautiful location. Well done everyone!
A reminder: The next session will now take place at Poston Mill on Tuesday 20th May 2014 at 11:30am.
