Grumpy Dogs Seminar
with Nando Brown


Nando has been a dog trainer and instructor for 13 years and is now enjoying a successful career in television, most recently having worked on Channel 4's 'Rescue Dog to Super Dog'.

Nando is a knowledgeable and charismatic host, and regularly lectures both in the UK and internationally.

This exciting seminar is a complete guide to dog aggression. Whether you are experiencing problems with your own dog, a dog that you know, a canine professional who encounters 'grumpy' dogs, or someone interested in canine behaviour, this seminar is for you.

With live demonstrations as well as video case studies (as usual) Nando makes the course entertaining and gets the audience involved.

This course is a perfect step for trainers, other canine professionals, or anyone who knows a 'grumpy' dog.

Attendees will have the chance to ask their own questions.

Dog Safety Talk - FREE

At Shropshire Dog Training Centre we believe in giving free information and advice, wherever possible.

Laura Vaughan-Evans is offering free dog safety talks, especially designed for children of any age.

There is an awful lot of incorrect information out there, not based on any scientific evidence, which can lead to people, dogs or other animals being harmed unnecessarily.

At Shropshire Dog Training Centre we are committed to providing useful and up-to-date information, so that people and dogs can learn to live harmoniously together.

We believe that the best way to achieve this goal is to provide the right information and tools to the next genertion of children and young people, as well as adults.

If you would like more information, or would like to request a visit from Laura to your school or organisation, please get in touch.
