Roger (my husband), Sasha and myself (Nadia) have just returned from a wonderful Stay and Train weekend at Bowerland and would like to thank you very much for the opportunity. Sasha, our Kooikerhondje, is a Dutch breed and we love him dearly. He is a very special little dog and we are trying to help him to overcome his struggles.
We stayed at the Tor View studio with beautiful countryside all around us. The studio is spacious, cleverly designed and well equipped. We were particularly impressed with the attention to detail – from homemade marmalade, shortbread biscuits and orange drink on the table to milk and water in the fridge; a warmly glowing crystal lamp and candles to high end toiletries and soft towels. Our dog had something for him too – a whole tub of FRESH-K9, a training whistle, a towel in case of muddy paws and the very important roll of poo bags! Impressive.
The time with our trainer flew by!
So much useful information, so many lightbulb moments! Fred’s calm, attentive way was very reassuring and encouraging. A BIG THANK YOU to him. We love training with games, tricks, and dabble in agility and scent work. Anything to build Sasha’s confidence!
We loved our time at Bowerland!
My only regret is that I discovered your informative blog too late to benefit from the lovely walks, especially as we only walk Sasha on lead at the moment. Never mind, next time! We have already booked our return visit for July 2023!
