Canine Behaviour: the key to a well-behaved hound

Wednesday 21 March, Duchess of Cambridge, 20 Goldhawk Rd, W6 0XF, 6.30pm for 7pm

Author Nigel Reed – ‘The Dog Guardian’ – reveals his easy to follow method for a happy and well-behaved dog in a 30 minute talk.

A bestselling author on Amazon, he has successfully practised his method on thousands of dogs over the past 15 years. The information he shares will give an insight into how to communicate with your dog in a language they understand. In turn you will be empowered to address any behavioural problems and become a kind and non-confrontational leader that your dog respects and feels safe with. The talk takes place upstairs at the Duchess of Cambridge, 20 Goldhawk Rd, W6 0XF, 6.30pm for 7pm, on 21 March.
