Over the summer months Josh and I have been attending dog training classes at Billingshurst Dog Training Club. The course is held outside in a recreation field - so far the weather has been kind and only one class has had to be cancelled due to a thunder and lightening storm. The course is called Rally Obedience, a relatively new type of obedience class. A course is put out with notices set out instructing you what exercise the dog has to do e.g. dog to sit and you walk round him, another exercise is weaving in and out of cones and many more different ones including a small jump over a low bar. It has been a very enjoyable course and hopefully we will be able to attend a similar one next summer.

Rosie is a Pets As Therapy registered dog, we visit a local Special Needs school on a weekly basis. Along with a group of other owners and their Pets As Therapy dogs on 27th May we visited the Student Union at Surrey University where groups of students came in to pet and make a fuss of the dogs as a pre-exam de-stressing exercise. It was a very interesting day and although quite tiring for the dogs the visit was much appreciated.
