What's it all about?
The terms enrichment and mental stimulation are often tossed about in the dog training world. But what do these terms really mean? What is truly enriching for dogs and how can we tell whether one activity is better than another? During this workshop we'll be deep-diving into the amazing and mysterious world of our dogs, including their senses, abilities and emotions. We'll look at how we can provide opportunities for dogs to exhibit natural behaviour and improve their confidence, happiness and behaviour.

Kirsty is a dog behaviour specialist based in the UK and is the founder of The Dog Nose. This unique, indoor enriched environment for dogs was opened in 2018 and inspired by the work of Norwegian dog expert Turud Rugaas. It provides a safe and secure space for dogs to exhibit natural behaviour and improve their confidence. The Dogs Nose model is now being replicated across the world, and Kirsty frequently supports those starting their own enrichment programs.
