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.

Welcome back Ian

The lovely Ian Dunbar is coming back to the UK and the news was greeted with great enthusiasm.  Tickets went on sale on the 1st July and instantly sold like hot cakes.

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

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.

We have lowered the price of many of our Haqihana harnesses, particularly the larger sizes.  With a huge range of choice and free delivery you can't go wrong.

Nando makes everything clear

22 Apr 2017 14:26:08

What a superb seminar with Nando Brown at the Kennel CLub facility at Stoneleigh.  He gave us a scientific overview of the different types of learning theory.  He demonstrated how it can be so easy to fall into a popular interpretation of certain words, like "Positive", that the science on which these theories are based is lost. Nando put us right in a way that was clear and very entertaining. A resounding 5 star rating on all feedback forms for both the speaker and the topic. Thank you, Nando.

Many thanks to Kay Attwood for giving us a fascinating couple of days on boosting our dog's brain power.  Through a series of exercises, we learned not only how to encourage our dogs to think for themselves but gained an insight into how dogs think.

The dogs were certainly exhausted at the end of each day so they'd obviously been working hard.

Empowering the Canine Learner

30 Mar 2017 14:47:00

Chirag seminarWe had a fab time with Chirag on Tuesday where a packed room learned about how we can empower our canine learners and give them choice throughout training.

The 'bucket game' was as popular as ever, and we had some really lovely comments on our feedback forms.
