Live in har­mony with your dog

Macclesfield Express - - BARLOW’S BRIEF -

TO­DAY my young black Lab Cobra chased after a ball I threw for him. Un­for­tu­nately the ball went down the steep bank of a pond and rolled onto the ice.

Cobra charged in after the ball.

Re­al­is­ing the dan­ger I im­me­di­ately blew my re­call whis­tle and Cobra turned and came straight out of the pond.

Had he not had a re­li­able re­call it could have been another drown­ing tragedy.

I saw a lady dragged off her feet on a frozen foot­path last week by her dog pulling on the lead.

She was very shaken and may have sus­tained a dis­lo­cated shoul­der.

Another lady phoned me in dis­tress to tell me her dog had sud­denly at­tacked another in the park ‘with­out warn­ing.’

Th­ese kinds of in­ci­dents can hap­pen any time to dog own­ers so we need to do some­thing about them.

From 9.30am on Sun­day, Jan­uary 11, I will be at Mor­ley Green Club Wilm­slow (SK9 5NT) run­ning a Be­hav­iour Clinic where, for a £10 do­na­tion to a lo­cal an­i­mal char­ity, I will work di­rectly with your dog on any train­ing or be­hav­iour prob­lems he/she may have.

I’ll be do­ing the same again at Ast­bury Mere vis­i­tor cen­tre Con­gle­ton (CW12 4FR) from 10am on Satur­day, Jan­uary 17.

If you want to book an ap­point­ment to save wait­ing, text me on 07590 560012 or just turn up on the day.

I prom­ise you will be amazed.
