Dog trainer offering virtual training sessions to keep your best friend fit and healthy during lockdown
A Sunderland dog trainer is supporting owners and pets alike by producing free DIY training videos to keep your four legged friend healthy and active during the coronavirus crisis.
Lucy Parkin, 51 from Sunderland, runs dog training business Cleverpawz and wants to support dog lovers by keeping pets active and owners safe with free online training sessions.
Lucy, who has over 30 years experience training dogs, is keen to ensure owners can keep their dogs active and healthy by uploading easy to do DIY training sessions online.
The sessions can be done easily at home with just some basic equipment and aims to work dogs mentally as well as physically.
Speaking about the sessions, Lucy said: “As I can’t run my classes at the minute I thought it would be a good idea to keep up the dogs training virtually.
“These videos help add to the dogs exercise as they might not be getting walked as often. It’s important to keep our dog's brain active which can help prevent anxiety and behavioural issues and learning new things does just that.”
Cleverpawz, based in Washington, provides dog training and behaviour support for dogs and aims to improve a dog's overall health, fitness and behaviour.
Lucy added: “I hope by offering these videos I can contribute to the wellbeing of the community both animals and humans alike by giving them something fun they can do at home to keep spirits up.”
