The ABCs of Trailing: C is for CALM One of the best things you can do to help your dog whilst trailing is to stay calm. If you panic or start to have doubts, your dog will pick up on it. Conversely if you're relaxed and trusting, your canine partner will have nothing else to worry about other than concentrating on the job at hand.
The ABCs of Trailing: B is for BOND The irreplaceable bond strengthened through teamwork and mutual trust. Trailing is all about building a partnership and working together with your dog. You will learn to trust not just your own instincts but your dog's as well - you will be amazed being part of something that comes naturally to every dog in the world, bringing you both closer than you've ever felt before.

Bobs turned four in December 2019. She used to love to run and play with other dogs. Chasing balls was always a firm favourite.

Once we’d tried it, we were both hooked! From about the age of two Bobs has shown some sort of lameness on her back legs. She was seen by her vet who X-rayed her and saw little wrong. The only slight [...]
