Bessie is a dear little Patterdale/Lakeland terrier, a rescue dog from Wales. She is very good with people, including children, but is unpredictable with other dogs. I contacted Emily, at Bath Canine Academy, about 8 weeks ago and she arranged a couple of 1-2-1 sessions, so that she could assess the problems. Emily considered Bessie suitable to join the Friday morning class, held on Farmborough Recreation Ground and I am very pleased with the progress that Bessie (and I) have made. The classes are useful but also good fun. As well as obedience-training we do a bit of agility-work. Bessie has now made friends with the dogs in the class and we are working on tactics to distract her from the other dogs, who are running free at the far end of the Rec! Soon after I had adopted Bessie, I began to think that I had made a mistake. Bessie still has some issues, but now, I get up each morning and think how lucky I am!!
