Craig Ogilvie (As seen on ITV's Nightmare Pets SOS)

Craig is uniquely qualified in the UK as the only person to achieve a Mondioring decoys licence and has travelled all over Europe with his sport testing and training dogs from all over the world.

He is also one of the few civilian accredited police dog trainers in the country, a dog behaviour practitioner, the author of the Interactive Play Guide and completely in love with helping dogs and people. Travelling all over the country delivering seminars, workshops and talks helping to motivate dog lovers and their dogs to achieve their goals and create their own in amazing Interactive Play Experience.

Places are limited to only 6 handler spaces to ensure the best interactive experience. Handlers can bring a guest as part of the price. Spectator places are one space per person, so you can watch and learn what to do with your dog at home. Craig will involve spectators in all of hs question and answer sessions to ensure you have a great amount of knowledge to put into practice with your dog.

Classes are held in a secure grassed paddock at the Blue Cross Rehoming Centre in Ipswich. We train at the Blue Cross by supporting the rescue dogs with financial contributions for the use of the space.

Where?

Blue Cross Rehoming Centre
Bourne Hill
Wherstead
Ipswich IP2 8NQ
(If you are using Sat nav it may not bring you all of the way to the centre. If approaching from the south side of Bourne Hill, you will pass the Oyster Reach restaurant, and Bourne Hill kennels on the left. The centre is just past the kennels and opposite the entrance to the dry ski slope)
Wherstead is just off junction 56 of the A14 making it easy to reach from Sudbury, Felixstowe, Ipswich, Colchester, Woodbridge, Martlesham, Sproughton, Copdock and surrounding areas.

What to bring to class:

  • Flat collar or harness (Choke chains, prong collars are not permitted)
  • Standard lead (not extendable)
  • Lots of yummy treats cut into small pieces. Thinly sliced hot dogs are great for training
  • Poo bags
  • Please bring your dogs vaccination certificate to the first session you attend or email a copy to [email protected]
  • Please dress for the weather conditions, to ensure you and your dog are comfortable throughout the session. We train in all weathers. REMEMBER, theres no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothes!!!!!!

Water and water bowls are provided, but if your dog prefers their own please feel free to bring that as well. We recommend not feeding a morning meal, or at least reducing it, as the training is reward based and their tummy’s will fill up quickly!!!

Parking is available on site, and please read our terms and conditions before booking.

Brilliant! Never taken part in anything like it. Our overexcited border terrier, with strong prey drive, who kills any toy he owns wasn't remotely interested in playing......who knew!?!? So much work to do at home, such a rewarding session and amazing to see how dogs interact so differently. Be a handler if you can get booked on, so informative.
