What are Xtra Dog Up To At The Show?
At Discover Dogs visit us on stand 162 and see the range of dog walking harnesses designed by Marie Miller, Tellington TTouch harnesses, sled dog harnesses and car harnesses. Also see the full range of Spiffy Dog collars and leads, TTouch training equipment, Thundershirts, cool coats as well the award winning Dicky Bags and Pawtrekker dog scooters. We have also invited Tellington TTouch to join us on the stand. TTouch is a method of working with animals without fear or force. The non-habitual movements release tension using gentle bodywork and physically balancing groundwork exercises. Practitioners Marie Miller and Jacqui Carter will be on-stand throughout the show to talk about TTouch and demonstrate and explain how this method of training can help your dogs. To find out more about TTouch visit our TTouch pages in the Dogucation Zone. Click Read More to answer the Question

Finding the right breed and breeder
Visitors to Discover Dogs will find out why choosing the right breed is the key to a lasting relationship and why choosing a good breeder is such an important decision.
Too many people buy a dog without looking into all aspects such as breed temperament, lifestyle requirements, cost and the breeder they buy from. Puppy farms profit from puppy buyers who have not done their research properly and often sell sick, poorly socialised and nervous puppies which have been separated from their mothers too early and kept in appalling conditions.
Find a rescue dog
For those looking for a rescue dog, there will be breed rescue organisations present, as the Kennel Club supports breed rescue organisations up and down the country in almost all the 210 pedigree dog breeds recognised in the UK. Like Kennel Club Accredited Breeders, breed rescue societies will make sure potential owners are suitable for their dogs.
