Film and TV Advanced class July 4th 2023

  • “I thoroughly enjoyed spending the day with one of my own Norwich Terriers taking part in the TV and Film workshop. We got to cover a wide range of exercises from various levels and each dog and handler was able to work at their own level and were given guidance to progress in a way that suited each dog best. We've come away from the workshop fully motivated with some new ideas and highly recommend Sally's training workshops to anyone looking for a fun and educational day with their dog! Thankyou all for a lovely day.”
