Upcoming Continuing Education Events

While we have had a little break from blogging due to illness and holidays and general run-off-our-feet-ness, we have been working away behind the scenes.


AniEd has some really exciting plans to bring you accessible and relevant educational events, that will be as up to date as possible, interactive and packed full of useful resources.

Access to these resources, interactive feedback and discussion and the events themselves will be largely via this blog so you might see password protected posts – these are for those who have signed up for the event. A password will be given to each attendee so that they can get the full picture and access all the associated material.

We will be back up and running soon with our usual free access blogs, with lots of clips & tips too.


This weekend we have a CAP1 workshop at our centre, to help those just starting out with clicker training and to help prepare for submitting assessment.

More on CAP1 here and here.

Working spots (with dogs) are filled but there are unlimited spectator spots available. Current students of ours can take advantage of discounted rates for attending and outside of this, this event costs €50, payable on the day.

If you would like to attend just send an email to info@anied.ie and we will provide details.


Look out for news of more workshops, seminars and webinars too so that you don’t miss out!

Not only do we teach dogs how to behave around children and teach parents how to monitor child-dog interactions, we can teach children the best ways to behave around dogs too: How to be a kid dogs feel safe with
And some great tips on keeping interactions safe too: A dog will always tell you if he’s about to bite

We are pretty bonkers about enrichment for dogs – anyone handy want to build us one of these?!


Older dogs require a little extra TLC to make sure they have the best quality of life for as long as possible: 6 Tips for Caring for Older Dogs

Just as it’s important to take care toward the end of your dog’s life, it’s also vital that great care be taken at the start of your dog’s like: Puppy 101

We have talked about the importance of looking beyond daily-walkies as a way of entertaining your dog here; this piece looks at this too, with some nice ideas included: What’s in a walk?

Muzzle training is a must for ALL dogs, before they need to wear one: Muzzles: limiting or liberating?

Such an elaborate operation, and clearing away the evidence too:


Here’s another super talented canine:


And on stealth, I think this fella has them all beaten: Ninja Husky
