We all need to perform husbandry tasks on our dogs at some point. This could be as simple as grooming your dog, taking out a burr from their fur, removing a tick, examining a wound, checking your dog's teeth, administering eye drops, cleaning your dog's ear, brushing their teeth or cutting their nails.
Rather than forcing our dogs to be still and manhandling them which can cause distress, this workshop will teach you essential co-operative skills that can be used for many different types of husbandry behaviours. By giving a dog choice and allowing them permission to say 'no', we can make the care for your dog's health and well-being as familiar and comfortable for our pets as possible.
This workshop will cover some of the essential handling procedures that are required for your dog, including mouth and teeth, ears, eyes and feet etc.
If your dog dislikes handling/grooming or you just want to make these easier for them, then this workshop is for you.
It will be held at Nonsuch Scout Hall, Bluegates, Ewell, Surrey, KT17 2SA.
