Ingrid Grayling November Blog

November 2012

The thermals are now on, as are the warm comfortable coats and winter socks. Outside in the kennels the heat lamps are definitely on and remain on throughout the cold frosty nights, and if it's pouring down and miserable, they stay on throughout the day. It makes the kennels look so cozy, I feel like curling up under them myself!

Although I am out most of the day with my working dogs and also the guest kennel dogs I do have excellent people around who help and support me, we work well together as a team. Walking our guest dogs on the fells every day for the hours that we do takes up a huge amount of time so when they take over, this enables me to concentrate on what I love doing most of all; dog training.

Over the past few months training dogs has taken on a new meaning for me. Meeting so many people over the years with all the different breeds of dogs has been really interesting. Every person of course is different, what I've noticed is; occasionally you meet someone who is, like myself, truly a doggie person, someone who has a special way with dogs.

I decided many months ago that, as I train in a different way to many trainers and as I have always had a one hundred per cent success rate, I really should be passing on my knowledge to like minded people.

So I decided to set up a new business, which has now launched, it is called Train the Trainer the Grayling Way.

The course takes place here in Cumbria and is spread over three full days. The course covers, not just the practical side of training, but all aspects of the dog world. The course also includes office management, P.R. and marketing. After the three days there is an assessment, as long as I am satisfied with the student they receive a certificate to say they have been trained by me and that they then can enjoy full back up and support in the future.

This course enables the new trainer to set up on their own with a feeling of confidence that they have the experience and support of me behind them.

Some students have traveled as far as Devon and Dorset, which is great for me. As when I do my check-up visit I can have a holiday as well in a beautiful part of the world!

I particularly enjoyed the last course as it was pouring with rain for the whole three days, so we spent half the time in the house where I taught the student by the open fire. Then at lunch time we had a good break, a lovely, non doggie, chat and a tasty casserole to eat. I felt that I had managed to achieve the best of both worlds!

Yes, I did feel guilty when the team came in for their lunch soaking wet and cold, but I avoided eye contact and fled into the office again with my very happy student!

Happy training everyone.
