Mental stimulation and environmental enrichment is one of your dog’s primary needs. Daily nourishment assists brain growth and is a necessary part of a dog’s development in helping them become well balanced and socially confident. This weminar will explore many different ways to keep our dog’s mind stimulated in and around the home and when out on walk. We will explore our dog’s capabilities to learn, along with their problem solving abilities. We will also look at ideas on enriching day care, kennel and welfare environments for dogs.
'Dogs have always fascinated me. From the domestic dogs we share our lives with to their wild and feral counterparts. And then there are wolves, the very beasts that captivated my imagination as a young boy and have instilled a passion in me that has been strengthened with every passing year of my life.
My training methods and interactions with dogs are completely humane and motivated by a deep love and respect for the animal. I am in a continuous search for further knowledge and learning experiences to deepen my appreciation for dogs and the lives they lead. I share this knowledge with the aim to help owners and their dogs live fuller lives together. I am a keen writer and have published several articles related to dog training & behaviour. My personal interests with dogs are in observation skills, studying canine natural responses and movement, dog–dog & dog–human communication, stress & associated behaviour and teaching appropriate communication and handling for owners towards their dogs.'
