Dima needs you!
The Good Boy Dog School, run by Dima Yeremenko, and based in New Southgate, London, offers a range of services from one to one training, group classes and even home visits. The lessons aren’t restricted to just puppies either, one of the oldest members being 17!
As well as running the school, Dima has also written a book: Dima’s Dog School: The Foolproof New Way To Train Your Dog. His advice is based on his handfeeding method and rewards, concentrating on resolving training and behavioural problems.
For the last nine years The Good Boy Dog School have run a week of doggy boot camps! And this year is no different, this summer The Good Boy Dog School are inviting all their friends to join them for a week of Dog Training and Fun at a new location of Capstone Farm Country Park in Kent, running from 27 July – 02 August 2008. In previous years the Boot Camp has been held at Pentney Lakes, and last year they hit highest attendance numbers of dogs and their owners! Unfortunately the training week has had to move from the previous location but has now found the fantastic location in Kent where there is plenty of rolling landscape to host all the camping and all the events planned for the week. To take a look at the park visit http://www.medway.gov.uk/index/leisure/countryside/countryparks/2178.html or http://www.kent.gov.uk/leisure-and-culture/explore-kent/parks-and-open-spaces/capstone-farm-country-park.htm.
As they like making everyone of their friends happy, here’s another smashing good news - this year the price of the training week is being dropped down! The final list of fees will be confirmed at a later date but it will definitely stay below the £200 mark!
OURDOGS will be supporting the camp, with goodie bags for all who take part. Watch out for features on DIMA DOGS in Our Dogs both in print, and online. To subscribe to the newsletter visit the web site www.ourdogs.co.uk.
The people at Good Boy are also looking for businesses who wish to promote themselves or their products on their newsletters, internet mailings, T-shirts and various hand-outs. No team uniforms have been ordered yet for this year o if you fancy your logo on those, or if anyone out there has ideas on working with them on any of these things, please do not hesitate to contact them. Agility and Flyball equipment is planned to be on-site for the whole length of the training week, with daily classes on Canine Obedience and fun motivational exercises, and disciplines such as Heelwork-to-Music, Competitive Obedience, Working Trials and others will be covered by guest trainers. Many more activities will be waiting for you and your pooch, there will be updates with all the news soon.
Camping this year will be possible in your own tent, tent hired from Good Boy, Caravan or Motorhome, or even local B&B (although you will miss out on loads of stuff though if you do). Barbeques, take-aways, pub lunches, free breakfast and beverages will hopefully keep you filled – in for your stay with them.
