TRAINING DAY

I often am asked what sort of training I do with my Neos.Well I thought I'd share a training session I did with my young female Selby 2 years old.Because of various conditions I have my dogs sometimes have to act like a guide dog would do for a blind person and this being the case when I am well I jump at an opportunity to put my dogs to what I call an ultimate test.In this instance as many will know London in the UK is hosting the 2012 Olympics and I know that the the train stations and underground stations will be busy like never before.So with that in mind I took Selby to London yesterday and came back today having stayed overnight in a hotel in Brighton.One of the obvious challenges was the massive volumes of people about .Then ,as I dont drive there is travelling on the trains and underground tubes which is a challenge easily passed by Selby.The biggest challenge are the escalators you need to go up and down on to travel through the underground tube stations and of course the underground tube trains which are considerably noisier and much more of a bumpy ride in comparison to the trains.Check the short clips to see how Selby did.I will say the best part of travelling on the tube and train is that they have air conditioning tho the heat certainly hits you when you come off them.
