Dog Train & Behave’s finale day competition will be staged at The Company of Animals’ Ruxbury Farm HQ in Surrey on August 4th following its week-long inaugural initiative - Dog Train & Behave Week (28th July – 4th August)

Making a big splash at the event is the second ever JettyDogs® display , which is open for all dogs to enjoy and take the plunge! Known as DockDogs® in the USA, JettyDogs® is a newly introduced sport to the UK. Combining peoples’ love of competition with the love of their dogs, it is a very accessible sport – anyone with a dog and a ball can join in, hence its fast growth and massive popularity. The British National Champion, ‘Jumping Jack Splash’ will be taking part on the day – come see him take his leap of faith!

The Dog Train & Behave finale day promises to be the best ‘dog’ day out in 2007’s canine calendar now that the Wag & Bone Show has been cancelled. Featuring a host of attractions and action packed displays as well as its exciting training based competition rounds.

All profit will go to it’s supporting charities, including Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, Dogs for The Disabled and Battersea Dogs & Cats Home.

Offering all dog owners the chance to put their training skills to the test and compete for the coveted ‘Best Behaved Dog’ award across a number of different levels. The aim of the day is to illustrate how responsible ownership pays dividends and highlights the positive contribution of man’s best friend to our human world.

Doggie dancing supremos ‘Paws n Music’ will wow the audience with their routines in the main ring , whilst ‘Nina Bondarenko’s mastermind K9 Quiz’ will get the brain cells ticking. Plus Sarah Fisher’s team will offer workshops on the acclaimed TTouch (Tellington Touch ) alternative training and behaviour technique.

The Kennel Club will highlight its Good Citizen Dog Scheme and stage testing on the day for its Bronze Good Citizen Dog Scheme Award.

Assistance dogs charities Hearing Dogs for Deaf People and Dogs For The Disabled will demonstrate how these specially trained dogs transform lives and highlight the potential of the dog as man’s best friend.
