MAN'S BEST FRIEND: Our grand opening is fast approaching
Will you be joining us next weekend for the grand opening of our newly built PawPrint Pavillion? We would love for you all to come along.
We will be holding a Fun Dog Show so please bring your pooches along and enter them in a variety of fun classes
There will also be plenty for you to do while your pooches are showing off their skills in the ring.
You can treat your pet to a new toy from our shop or grab yourself a bargain in our pre-loved section. And if that wasn’t enough, you could try your luck on our tombola or enter the raffle to win some amazing prizes. After all that fun you can chill out and enjoy some lovely refreshments while watching the dog show.
If you want to join us, the gates will open 10.30am and the judging for the dog show will start at 1pm. We hope to see you at the South Lincs centre next Saturday!
Can you give a home to Freddie?
Do you have enough energy to keep up with this young boy?
This is Freddie. He’s a loveable young lad looking for an active home where he gets to be out and about a lot. Freddie loves other dogs and enjoys playing with them – he would be happy living in a home with an existing dog.
Freddie is very sweet and loves to play. He could live with children over the age of 12 who are used to bouncy dogs.
If Freddie is the one for you please phone 01205 260546 or email email@example.com to arrange to come and meet him!
This week we will be following on from last week’s training tip of teaching your dog to touch your hand with their nose.
Now that your dog has learnt this trick we want to build up the duration of them touching as this can come in handy for some upcoming tips!
Once your dog is touching your hand every time, you can prolong the touch by not rewarding them for just touching – your dog will instantly go back to touch your hand in order to get the treat. Once they do this, wait until their nose is touching your hand for more than just a touch, ideally one second, then mark and reward the behaviour. Build this up over a few sessions and keep rewarding for longer touches.
Some dogs get this really quickly, other may get frustrated. If this happens, take a break and let them do a trick they know a few times for the reward then try again later.
