Cannock Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) team’s dog training sessions came to a successful end this March.
The sessions were held to help people to build confidence with their dogs and to give them the tools they need to keep their pets under their control when walking at Cannock Chase.
The sessions, held at Birches Valley Concert Ground, worked on the bond between the dog and its handler and its responsiveness in the outside environment.
The last training session on 18 March saw a selection of the dogs and their owners awarded certificates for their achievements over the six-week course.
Jo Bovington and Spike the dog were awarded a special certificate for their outstanding effort and attendance at the course.
Emma Beaman, Assistant AONB Officer, said “The sessions went well and we’ve had lots of positive feedback about how informative and instructive the course was. Well done to Jo and Spike for winning the special award, and a big thank you to Companion Care Vets, based in Cannock, for sponsoring the training and for presenting the certificates to the winners.”
Companion Care Vets is inviting everyone to pack a lunch and attend a dog picnic and to enter a dog show at Cannock Chase Visitor Centre on Sunday 27 April at 1pm.
