T: 01992 442443
Hi there, I’m Jo and I’m a qualified dog trainer through the IMDT.
I specialise in puppy training and Canine Enrichment.
I am very passionate about canine enrichment and how important it is to dogs. I believe the very foundation of dog training starts with canine enrichment. I have always been a strong believer that dogs need to be mentally stimulated as well as physically.
It can help to prevent behavioural problems such as reactivity, resource guarding, separation anxiety whilst building confidence, relieves boredom, it’s bonding between you and your dog and all the time they are having fun.
By giving your dog activities and tasks which make them think, you are stimulating their brain and enhancing their mental state. By allowing your dog to use their nose and brain to problem solve and learn new skills, you will see so many benefits and most of all, they love doing it.
Did you know 20 minutes of sniffing is equivalent to an hours walk !
Not only does enrichment help to alleviate boredom it is also brilliant for dogs recovering from operations or older dogs that are unable to exercise as much.
Simply put, enrichment WILL enhance your dog’s life - guaranteed
