dog training Dogs Workshop

Workshops in Namibia

In August 2012 I was invited to give a series of workshops by the Windhoek Dog Club in Namibia. Having given several workshops there in the past, I knew I was in for a weekend of enjoyable interaction and socialisation. Here are some pictures of the attendees hard at work during the practical sessions. In winter they have to work on sand, as the grass dies down competely. On top of this, the sand is full of mica, which makes everything sparkle with silver. Quite attractive unless you have a black dog, which turns into a dirty brown dog with silver glitter within minutes!

As always, there was a wide variety of breeds present, some of which are already competing in various dog events, whereas others are much loved pets which lead a pampered and fun-filled life. All the dogs present were well-socialised and interactive.
