What you'll do

Who doesn't love a well trained dog?! Enjoy, and BE the Trainer, in this Taster Dog Training session!
This Experience is suitable for dog enthusiasts OR, those wanting to overcome fears - adults or children.
Easy access by car, train or bus.
First, we'll relax in the lounge over a cuppa-to determine your experience with dogs, your hopes for this Experience, & agree personalised aims. I'll start with a brief educational history and look at pictures of this beautiful, lesser known breed - the Keeshond - it's characteristics and why i chose this breed. Next I'll explain what to expect, the Do's/Don'ts of how to act when with Brody, and safety aspects-via a video.
We will then go to meet Brody. At first you will watch me interact and teach you what to do then, strictly ONE at a time, I will introduce you each to Brody for some personal time with him.
Next I will demonstrate some basic commands and how YOU can instruct Brody to perform them, both with voice&silent commands. Your turn!
Brody will then demonstrate some advanced tricks, then YOU can have a go.
Weather permitting we can walk to the park and I can show you how to walk a dog hands-free! There we can do some Agility or Competition moves, if time.
Finally, back home, Brody will love you to groom him, before a very special "Brody Hug" Goodbye.
You'll leave with a special 'Doggy Bag'
You may take photos/video
Other things to note
Wear long trousers/sleeves to protect from claws/muddy paws
Experience is weather dependent (dates can be re-booked)

My passion is connecting with people in novel ways, to inspire change in their lives. I work as a Therapist in mental and emotional health, and am an Airbnb Superhost to ~1,000 guests in my home. Clients/Guests alike so often come as strangers and leave feeling like family.
I grew up with and Adore dogs. Then, as a Therapist, found myself "prescribing" dogs as wonderfully therapeutic intervention. Until I had to prescribe myself a dog to get me through a crisis. Loving dog training, in his first year - purely self trained by me - we've gained Bronze, Silver & Gold "Good Citizen Dog Scheme" certificates, progressed in "Rally" obedience competitions to Level 4, earning "Excellent" in every competition, with 9 Rosettes (4 x 1sts), and his achievements recognised in his Breed's "Versatility Awards" by receiving their highest Platinum Award

AIRBNB EXPERIENCES

Responsible interactions

All hosts must follow guidelines created with World Animal Protection.

Caring, expert hosts

Learn from biologists, conservationists, farmers, and more.

Diverse animals

Meet over 300 kinds of animals, from alpacas to zebras.

Where you'll be

We live, in a residential suburb, east of Birmingham, and close to Solihull, with excellent bus and train access, or free parking on the street.

Location is CoVid dependent. We start by sitting and chatting in a public and CoVid safe space.

Weather permitting we plan to spend time with Brody in the local park, just 5 mins easy stroll away. This is quite protected with a woodland area so suitable in most weathers.
