An informative dog training demonstration with local dog trainer Stephen Harrison from ‘One Man & his Gundogs’, raised money & awareness for local animal charities in Wiltshire.
Jo Davies and her staff at Petpals Salisbury, organised the evening on Friday, January 19, in the Michael Herbert Hall in Wilton, and more are planned. More than 100 people attended and £250 was raised for the Dogs Trust and Wiltshire Wildlife Hospital.
Stephen demonstrated a taster session with basic training methods to get a dog to sit, stay, recall, walk to heel and do tricks.
Stephen said ‘Thank you to each & every one of you for coming along on Friday evening. I was bowled over by the turnout: 107 people & all your entrance monies have been given to animal charities, so thank you again. I hope you enjoyed the evening – I certainly did! Keep training!’
More training to be covered include recall, jumping up and barking.
