Countryside Skills for Dogs

Want to enjoy an off-lead walk without worrying where the dog has got to? Need some guidance training a solid recall? Come along for some free dog training to learn some handy hints and tips.

  • Booking essential

We have teamed up with Ruth from Speak Dog with Ruth Haynes to put together an essential training package to help you and your dog have a safer, more enjoyable walk when out in the countryside.

This free event focuses on 'Countryside Skills' and we will talk about the common challenges we face when walking our dogs, how to overcome them, and apply what we've learnt in outdoor scenarios.

With no more than 6 dogs per session, there will be plenty of time to ask for additional tips or spend extra time practicing what you've learnt.

For Puppy Countryside Skills, please book onto the 10am session on 6th April 2024: https://www.nationaltrust-tickets.org.uk/event-tickets/35286?catID=33552&branches.branchID=2681.
