Thanks Alistair your input was so appreciated!
Hettie and I thoroughly enjoyed our session on Friday. Lots of great hints, tips and demos! It’s only been 2 days since our lesson but Hettie is listening more to ‘her master’s voice’ and is a totally different dog to walk already. Looking forward to another session when we are back up North again!
Alistair has a vast store of knowledge to impart on to novice handlers such as myself so it was a very rewarding hour for Kally and myself.
I will definitely be going back in a couple of months to soak in more of this knowledge.
Leah. We wanted to be sure we were on the right track with her training for the coming months. Just basic stuff really but important non the less. The usuall stuff with recall and walking to heal that seems to be everyone's problem.
Alistair was quick to put us right with some of our misconceptions and gave us renewed hope that we could progress without any major hiccups.
Getting rid of our harness was certainly the best advice, with Leah now walking with no pulling whatsoever on a slip lead. Supposing we don't see any other improvement in the coming weeks, the improvement in our walking hours is worth the cost of the lesson alone !
Thank you Alistair once again.
Pat and Jimmy (and not forgetting Leah)
great response to our lesson with Cara so far so thanks again.. Would i still qualify for your 3 lesson offer price even though I've already paid the first lesson? Keen to look further ahead with the training in the spring. Cheers Andy
thanks for fitting me in at the last minute. Raleigh is responding to her new tasks already. She is staying closer to me rather than disappearing over the horizon at the earliest opportunity which is normal for her breed... I now realise that I wasn't engaging enough with her and she was becoming bored with me hence her not taking any notice of me. After 1 session she is already looking back to me for instruction.... magic.! Lets hope it continues and see you on the 23rd. Charleze
