Barbara Sykes should need no introduction to anyone in the dog world, having appeared on many tv programmes, written numerous books both on training sheep dogs and behavioural topics across all breeds including on aggression.
"I have always been involved in rescue, from bringing stray dogs home when I was a child to rehabilitating and training problem dogs in later years that needed rehoming. Married, with two children, and living in Nottinghamshire I joined forces with Hazel Monk, who started the first official Border Collie Rescue, by helping to rehabilitate the problem and aggressive dogs that she was taking in. When my husband died I started my own business, originally the Border Collie & Sheepdog Training Centre the name was changed to Mainline Border Collie Centre in honour of my late great Meg (ISDS 115981). She started it all, she is the matriarch of my present line of dogs, my mainline of business is Border Collies and she comes from one of the main line of dogs, the great Wiston Cap line."

Workshop Details
TLC- Thinking Like Canines helps us to access the mind of a dog, to know what they are thinking and to understand their behaviour. It helps us to communicate with them and to provide a foundation for all forms of dog training.

Quite often we give mixed messages to our dogs that make it difficult for them to understand what we want from them and can cause adverse behaviour.

TLC dog training and behaviour is about listening to our dogs and talking to them in their own language - body language. From simple body movements a dog will soon learn not to pull on a lead and it doesn’t involve any pulling or jerking of the collar, in fact it is taught on a slack lead, no bribery is used and no toys are needed.

If we make dog training complicated we are making our own lives complicated. Dogs are very simplistic, they understand their own language and instincts and if we want to make training easy for both them and ourselves we must make every effort to communicate with them in a way they understand.

Every workshop varies and you should always expect the unexpected. Lots of time to ask questions and often the workshops flow with what people want to cover as well.
There will be demonstrations with dogs as necessary.
A very informative workshop with lots of thought provoking advice.
