Another Crufts has been and gone…

… and once again I suddenly remember I haven’t written anything here since…. well, last Crufts actually!

It was a fabulous few days - and I spent a lot of it catching up with friends and talking about new projects. The main ones of these are the Puppy Plan - a 16-week socialisation and habituation model, which I wrote for the Kennel Club and Dogs Trust to try and improve the lives of dogs and their owners, and prevent many behaviour and training problems. The research makes for scary reading! Have a look at

As well as that, there are the new online seminars at - aimed at dog owners, professionals and anyone who needs to keep their CPD up to date (and people working towards KCAI accreditation). So far there are five seminars by me and six be dog law solicitor Trevor Cooper.

In addition, I was talking about Cool to be Kind and also promoting my other seminars… So a busy old Crufts for me - but a lot of fun as always!
