Blimey! It’s been a busy couple of weeks! I reckon the last time I spoke to you, we were about to head up to Crufts, which seems like an age away now. Didn’t Katy & Folly do us absolutely proud?! I lose count of the people who contacted us, so inspired were they by their story. Other highlights were our Main Arena display, which was broadcast live on YouTube, and a hectic time on our stand resulting in nearly £4,000 in donations and merchandise sales. We almost added to this figure because staunch volunteer Suzetta couldn’t get the hang of the posh new electronic till, and tried charging several people £4,950 for a tea towel (They’re good, but they’re not that good).

Essex Puppy Training Satellite
The Essex satellite started in 2008. Training classes take place at Writtle College in Chelmsford, who generously donate their facilities free of charge. Being based at an agricultural college means that we have plenty of opportunity to socialise the puppies with other animals, including the large selection of horses that we share a campus with.
We also regularly go out and about with our puppies to provide them with experiences of lots of different environment. This includes retail parks, supermarkets, and for some reason lots of coffee shops!
We also have to get the pups used to travelling on public transport so we also go on regular visits to Stansted Airport, train stations and bus stations. Last year Firstbus Essex even gave us our own bus for the day to help with the puppies training.
As for me, I have been training companion dogs for nearly 8 years and have also studied British Sign Language which has proved very useful in helping Deaf dog owners to train their dogs. I am currently owned by a Jack Russell Terrier that I train and compete with in obedience and agility.
