I saw the Dog and Duck Show at Kent County Show, and of course was entertained, but beyond that Stuart’s commentary and demonstration gave a real insight into the dogs perspective. When you understand how wild dogs hunt you begin to understand much more about the way your own canine friend behaves. I think everyone with ambitions to own a dog should be taught the principles Stuart puts forward before obtaining their pet. It would lead to happier dogs, happier owners and less worry among those who are not into dogs
DEAR , STUART , I sent you a email soon after the BATH @ WEST show after reading your book , my wife is now reading it together we have been into dogs for some 57 years , my wife doe’snt want to finish the book as she is enjoying it so much , i do hope you continue to write such good books , many people no matter how much you try to help them as you say in your book you feel it is a waist of time , you win some you loose some !! , if only people would remember it is still a dog with its own instinct’s , i know of several people who bought there house but the dog owns it , keep up the good work, again i was very taken with your display a the show , showing what can be done even with a difficult dog i agree its your mental power over the dog . regards and many thanks ,
Saw the show today at the Cambridge Country show. The perfect mix of entertainment and education – between this and the sheep show, these are the best Country fare segments I have ever seen (I’ve seen my share!). Stuart, incredibly engaging and funny performance, you even managed to control the wild mob of kids who rushed into the ring! Great job.
Just wanted to say thanks for a great Sheep Show at Claremont Farm this weekend. My daughter really enjoyed it as did all the adults! I spoke to you really briefly afterwards and as promised I have bought your ebook. I’m 1/3 of the way in and my eyes are opening already. Thank you for making your experience and knowledge available to the public. It is going to be a great help to me and onward down to my dog.
Keep up the great work :o)
Very enjoyable show and performance at this weekend’s All About Dogs at Newbury.
Occasionally the ducks got the better of the dogs, but they shared the limelight well!
Absolutely adored the dogs and having the chance to meet them in between shows, and heard nothing but good remarks from others watching the show.
If I had to suggest one improvement: Perhaps there’s some way the children could take a more active part in the show, perhaps giving them handheld fences for the ducks to pass through???
A great show at all about dogs show in Newbury.
Absolutely brilliant show today at All About Dogs in Newbury! Informative and very funny!!!
Great show today at Stradset. We all thoroughly enjoyed it (especially our son Moses who was a ‘Maltese cross ‘ volunteer). About to start reading ‘The Way of the Dog’ before we start puppy classes next week with the newest addition to the family.
