Well hasn’t 2020 been quite the year and not the one any of us were expecting to have!
2020 has changed the business and reflecting on the last year it has actually changed it for the better, even though it may not have seemed that way at the time!
We have found our new sole use venue which I am SO grateful for! It has always been a dream from when I first set up the business to have a sole use venue and I now have one! It has a fantastic well draining sand surface which has been a god send with all the rain we have been having!
When I initially looked at the venue and it was all overgrown and derelict I actually wondered if we would be better with a field! After the long slog of tidying it up and fencing I am so glad we went with the sand arena – no slipping on wet grass, no mud and very limited cancelled sessions due to the weather!
2020 made us focus on one to one training and said goodbye to our regular group sessions (thanks corona) I actually love training one to one, dogs are so individual and unique and clients get more success training one to one as they are focused on the training and not the distractions of the other dogs in class!
We will still run small group workshops as this is part of the dogs training progression but these will be tailored for the needs of our one to one students.
I have also developed my online tuition, Zoom consultations, webinars, seminars and my favourite service yet my Geek Club!
I am so passionate about learning, understanding and the dog as a whole and geek club enables me to help owners truly understand their dog as a whole which inturn enables them to have greater success in their agility training.
My own dogs also managed to have lots of success in the limited shows that we did this year. Flash won into Grade 4 at just 2 shows which I’m very proud of! Flash also gained his Agility Warrant Bronze and finished 3rd in the gundog league.
So signing off for this year and reflecting on all the positives that have come out of 2020. Who knows what 2021 will bring but for now enjoy your Christmas and spoil your dogs 🧡🖤.
