“We are thrilled” said Alex Wilson Marketing Director of Spiffy Dog “to be supporting Marie Miller’s work and sponsoring her road show. As an ethical company we see too many people rush into pet shops spending large amounts of money on the wrong equipment without receiving the proper advice. At the LKA owners can have a free chat with one of this country’s well known dog experts who hopefully will be able to offer visitors the help that they have been looking for.”
“My work” explains Marie “is all about helping dogs and dog owners work together in a positive way. I encourage the use of reward based, clicker and TTouch Training so that owners can achieve the results they are looking for whilst at the same time ensuring the whole thing stays fun and rewarding for the dogs. I openly condemn the use of the archaic methods using choke chains, pinch collars, electronic collars and high-pitched alarms or other punitive equipment. I am looking forward to meeting visitors to the show and being able to chat with them and offer advice with problems that they are experiencing with their dogs.
Marie has also contributed to numerous dog magazines including Dogs Monthly, Dog Training Weekly, Service Dog, Your Dog and local newspapers. She is also the former dog editor for Natural Horsemanship Magazine.
“I am really thrilled” said Marie “to be part of LKA show. It is looking like it is going to a wonderful weekend for all involved.
Marie Miller will be on the Spiffy Dog during the weekend. Visitors will have the opportunity to come and meet Marie and have a chat with her about their dogs. This offers a unique opportunity to receive free consultancy from one of this country’s leading canine experts. Marie will also be signing copies of her books 100 Ways To Train The Perfect Dog and 100 Ways To Solve Your Dogs Problems.
