Canine Adventure Course

We are proud to host Canine Adventure Courses through out the year.

Skip the morning stroll and give your dog a fun workout instead!

The course is made up of 20 fun and novel obstacles - from haybales, to ball pits, logs, tyres, platforms and mazes!

The course is completed ON LEAD and is suitable for dogs of all training levels (dogs need to be dog social and people social).

Fun Jobs for City Dogs Workshops

Herding breeds are chosen for intelligence, drive, stamina, strong work ethic and instinct to herd!

Natural herding instinct stronger/weaker in each individual dog

Herding instinct needs an outlet – or dog will create own outlet – chasing cars, bikes, ball sports, other dogs, kids etc

Herding sheep is just as much a mental game as it is physical

City dogs therefore need:

  • Carefully balanced exercise and enrichment – mental and physical (too much focus on the physical can create endurance athletes – great on the farm but not in suburban backyards!)
  • A suitable outlet for their herding instinct: Sheepball gives mental and physical exercise vs throwing a ball (hunt instinct is triggered with fetch – releases high levels of cortisol – dog wouldn’t ‘hunt’ over and over and over and over again….!!) Repetitive and intense games of fetch can lead to injuries later in life – too high impact
  • An ‘off’ switch (thankfully we don’t tie up city dogs – but calm mat training or crate training is important to teach dogs to switch off)
  • A training plan to desensitise to moving triggers in an urban environment (bikes/cars/other dogs etc)
