Help Save Christmas

8 December @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

Santa’s main chef Gingy the Gingerbread Man has had his magic hat stolen so now he’s just a plain gingerbread biscuit.
Unfortunately Gingy is also the only person to know the secret ingredient for the reindeer snacks that makes them capable of flight on Christmas Eve.
If the reindeer can’t fly, then Santa can’t deliver the presents and this year’s Christmas will be a disaster!

Santa needs you

You and your dog need to search for the clues to solve the mystery, find the hat, reanimate Gingy and save Christmas.

The day will be suitable for all levels of searching ability even if you and your dog have never done it before.

Dogs will be searching for either catnip or cheese in this workshop.

A buffet style lunch along with drinks and snacks will be provided.

Boring but necessary:

  • The workshop is suitable for dogs who do not display any aggressive behaviour around other dogs or people.
  • Clues could be hidden in places that would require your dog to climb and/stretch, if your dog has any muscular-skeletal challenges or injuries, please contact us prior to booking so that we can discuss suitability with you and make sure we can make necessary accommodations.
  • Each dog attending must be booked onto the workshop and accompanied by at least one adult (18+ yrs). Any additional family dogs who wish to attend must book a separate place and be accompanied by another adult handler.
  • All our training methods are based on positive reinforcement. Please do not bring your dog to the workshop in any form of choke/check chain or collar, slip lead, headcollar or other device intended to control behaviour. We ask that all dogs work on a flat (non-tightening) collar or harness and 4-6ft lead – not an extending lead or slip lead.
  • Please DO bring a training pouch FILLED with small, delicious, tasty and irresistible (to your dog) morsels – this could include: cheese, sausage, chicken, ham, liver cake, carrot, apple, etc. Dried dog biscuits, kibble, pre-packaged treats and other ‘normal’ foodstuffs do not tend to work as effective rewards in a distracting training scenario and we would like for everyone to succeed!
