Disc Dogs

Today we visited with Chiara Zorzetto, an italian dog trainer living in the UK. Chiara competes in and trains in a sport called Disc Dog, quite unknown in the UK but big in the United States and also played on the continent.

Chiara took us through a potted history of the sport, and also gave us a demonstration of the freestyle and also distance flavours of the Disc Dog sport with Enja the Border Collie.

We thank Chiara for their time and will look forward to bringing you these articles soon.

August 2013 Issue

If you're looking for something fun to do with your dog, had you ever considered watching them launch themselves into a swimming pool?  Perhaps not, but that's just what the sport of dockdogs offers.  See our video Dock dogs.  For those looking for something a little more traditional, we bring another in our series on Ringcraft, this time looking at Movement Ringcraft - Movement.

As Promised in the July blog, August brings another video on the work of Fire Investigation Dogs and we meet CC and Reqs.  We also learn more about the work of the VMD and how their Accreditation Retailer Scheme can help us to buy pet medicine online safely.

Reactive Dog expert Brenda Aloff shows us how to use Eye Contact and Impulse Control techniques to help with problems of dog aggression and we learn how Reiki can be used for heart problems:Reiki - for Heart Problems.

Following the loss of much beloved "office" dog, Lady, we've found Belinda Johnston's advice on dealing with Grief and Pet Loss particularly helpful. We bring the second of Belinda's videos this month.

On a happier topic, having visited the UK Wolf Conservation Trust site in Reading, we have some lovely footage of their wolves as well as hearing about the great work of the Trust.
