We are very happy to be welcoming Daniel Mills back to deliver what is set to be a fascinating seminar on Puppy Development. This time, he will be joined by his colleague from the University of Lincoln, Lynn Hewison. We love Daniel's book Life Skills for Puppies (which we will have on sale at the event). This seminar will build on the material in that offering the latest scientific findings. It may well have implications on how we understand puppy behaviour and therefore training needs.

Robert Falconer Taylor returns

2 Dec 2017 20:36:03

We are very much looking forward to hosting Robert Falconer-Taylor again, in March next year.

The last time we hosted Robert was in Manchester.  For 2018 we decided to bring Robert further south so that more lucky people get to hear him.  Last time we found what he told us about EMRA (Emotion, Mood and Reinforcement Assessment) fascinating.  Because the emphasis has been purely on looking at dog behaviour and how to change it for so many years, it's easy to forget that dogs have an emotional life too and that these emotions can play a big part in a dog's propensity to learn. 

For Robert's next seminar he will share his knowledge of EMRA again and is adding a second day to talk about the effect of pain and nutrition on behaviour.  As with people, a dog's mental state is affected by being in pain or by what they eat.  We are looking forward to learning how to spot the signs that something internal is wrong and what we can do about it.

Denise Fenzi is a hit

2 Dec 2017 20:13:35

Thank you Denise Fenzi for a wonderful four days.

It was a hardy bunch who braved the elements to come and join Denise Fenzi with Dog & Bone in a particularly cold November but from the enthusiastically positive feedback it was well worth it.

Denise shared with us her techniques for motivating dogs to work with us.  In each of the two-day seminars she showed us how motivation needs to be tailored to the needs of the individual dog.  This involved partly seeing what most motivated the dog naturally and using that to create more motivators but also knowing when to calm as well as when to energise the dog.   

Her advice may have been intended primarily for a dog sports market but was invaluable for anyone training any dog.

Thank You Dr Ian Dunbar

23 Oct 2017 14:43:52

We've had so many people telling us how much they enjoyed the seminar with Dr Ian Dunbar, whether they came for just one day or for all four.

Dr Dunbar, the father of modern dog training, is still very relevant in his ideas and always entertaining. He's also not afraid to bring new challenges to the dog world. In particular, he raised the issue of shelters and dog breeders bringing more training into what they do rather than focus on the dog's physical needs. This would give the dog's new owners a great start to having a family pet rather than taking on an animal more akin to livestock. Some might doubt how much change can happen, but Ian is clearly very passionate and has the dog's best interests at heart.

Open Paw

8 Aug 2017 14:54:44

We've been getting some lovely feedback following our two two-day Open Paw events. 

We want to thank Kelly Gorman Dunbar and Clare Williams for all their hard work in putting the information together in a way that was interesting and clear to follow.  They explained the ethos and inspiration behind Open Paw, how it works in practise and how it can benefit any environment where dogs need to be kept in kennels.  Thanks, too, to Dayle Pierce for his help in answering questions and taking a team through their paces on the practical day.

We also want to thank Clare Williams and her staff for welcoming us into the National Welfare Trust centre in Watford and Helen MacFarlane and her staff for welcoming us into the Jerry Green Rescue centre in Thirsk.  It was great to get a chance to see the theory put into practise.

If Ian is someone you're keen to see, don't leave it too long before booking.  It's going to be popular.

Daniel Mills Seminar

26 May 2017 14:31:38

Daniel Mills seminar

It was lovely sunny weather for our seminar with Professor Daniel Mills on the Human-Dog Relationship and Separation Anxiety. 

We felt very privileged to be given the latest scientific findings on this fascinating topic which, as Daniel demonstrated, is far more complex than may at first appear.

Thank you very much to Daniel for a very interesting day.

Open Paw in the UK

5 May 2017 13:38:38

We are very excited to be bringing two very special two-day events to you in July, one in Hertfordshire and one in Yorkshire.

Kelly Gorman Dunbar, the originator of the Open Paw scheme, which transforms the lives of dogs in kennels, is coming over from America to speak in person about how it all works.  She's teaming up with Clare Williams, the CEO of the National Animal Welfare Trust (NAWT) to deliver this.  NAWT have been implementing the Open Paw scheme so Clare will be able to share invaluable information about how she has found it has worked in practise.  Day 1 of each event will be a seminar to give all the facts and details about the scheme and an optional day 2 will be on site at an Open Paw kennel to see the scheme in action.

Don't miss out on this great opportunity!

Haqihana Range

29 Apr 2017 08:58:31

One of the great things about Haqihana harnesses is the enormous range of colours, sizes and shapes to choose from.  It means that not only can your dog wear a beautiful and comfortable harness that is exactly the right fit but the right colour to complement their coat. We are proud at Dog & Bone to be able to offer an outstanding range of choice.
