Dan’s training should help find him a home

Evesham Editorial 26th Aug, 2019   0

STAFF at Dogs Trust Evesham are celebrating after they saw one of their long-term residents graduate from dog training classes.

Eight-year-old crossbreed Dan has been in the care of the centre since January and has been working with the expert training team to help him cope better in different situations such as busy environments, new people and being around other dogs.

After developing in confidence his canine carers felt that he was ready to take the next step forward and start training classes with the trust’s school which is held at the rehoming centre on Wednesday evenings.

During the six-week course with Dog School Worcestershire, Dan was able to continue with his basic training as well as put into practice what he’d already been learning but in a busier environment with other dogs and other people.

Katherine Ferguson, head coach at Dogs School Worcestershire, said: “He quickly learnt some really important skills such walking on a loose lead and coming back when called, all of which was done in a busy environment with lots of distractions, something Dan would’ve previously struggled with.

“To see him cope with that really well in class is testament to the hard work his canine carers have put in and shows the difference our classes make when it comes to equipping dogs with skills to help them in their new homes.

Dan is still looking for an adult home with no visiting children or other pets. He is super clever and loves food and toys which are both excellent training aids. Dan is always up for playtime and is convinced that he’s a lap dog despite being on the large side.

He would like a home that can offer him ongoing support with his training and provide him with walks away from the hustle and bustle whilst he settles in.
