Dog Blog A Day for National Pet Month – Lapford Dog Club
Question of the day (QotD) – Did you get a lockdown puppy and if yes, what breed did you go for and why?
I came across Lapford Dog Club thanks to my amazing, beautiful, one in a million Mastiff x Labrador. At the time he was one in a million because he was so complex to train and so strong to manage. Lapford Dog Club helped us socialise him as a puppy and guide me through how best to control such a big, bouncy, happy dog in everyday life. Sara was one of the trainers who had the entertainment of my dog and me in classes and she is now the chairperson for Lapford Dog Club as well as a trainer. Sara kindly took some time out to tell me more.
