Schools out for summer! But not just yet
by Shaun Bater // July 2018
Just as the children thought they were finished for summer along comes Dog School Essex to put a spanner in the works.
No time to relax and chill out when you could be coming along to our free educational training sessions
Working for Dog School Essex is such a privilege and during the summer months, we get the opportunity to meet and train the future generation of dog owners! Passing on some keys skills and the Dog School ethos to children aged 6 – 13.
Dog School Essex provide these training sessions for free. The sessions last for approximately 90 minutes and are held at two different venues through the summer. They’re at the Dogs Trust in Basildon and the Freight house in Rochford. Starting at 1 pm.
The sessions are fun, interactive but also have some key messages to help educate your child in and around dogs.
The classes are:
Fun! - Basic training with your dog which may include clicker training, recall, they may even learn a trick or two. We may even see the next budding Rachel Kitson through our ranks.
Provide key safety messages - How your child should behave in and around their own dog, basic handling, basic body language, what to do if you’re approached by an unknown dog in the park, how to greet other dogs in the park and other useful tips.
Interactive - We love questions and audience participation. We want you to enjoy the classes as much as we do.
