August Film and TV Masterclass
9am - 5 pm
Dog and Bone Seminars
* 1 day workshop to teach your dog the skills needed for film and TV work
* Attending dogs will have the opportunity to be put forward for film and TV opportunities
Does your dog have star potential? Would you like to work on films, TV programs, commercials and photo shoots? If so, this is the course for you.
While you can never predict what actions a producer will want from their canine actors, there are a number of 'tricks' that are useful to teach that can be used as a basis for many other behaviours.
Sally and Chris have worked with dogs within the film and TV industry for a number of years, from TV soaps, to photoshoots for commercials, and even at the Royal Opera House! During this one day workshop, Sally and Chris will work with you within groups and one-to-one, to teach you and your dog the behaviours that are most useful in this environment.
The day will end with an individual test for each of the participants and every dog in attendance will have the option to be added to www.dalysdogs.co.uk for the option of possible filmwork.
Dogs and future work
All dogs must be of a suitable nature to be worked in a room with people and other dogs. Attendance on this course does not guarentee film work but it does put you in a good position to be in with a chance.
Includes free certificate of attendance

What do we mean when we want a dog to walk either on a loose lead or at heel? People know what they don’t want but aren’t always clear what they actually want the dog to do instead. We cannot demand something from a dog until we are absolutely clear what that is. You must decide exactly what “loose lead” or “walking to heel” etc actually means for you. For example, do you want the dog not to lunge or jump at people or dogs, to stop marking or scavenging or to walk without resisting or baulking.
We will review the options available in the current literature such as “Be a Tree”, “Penalty Yards”, "Jerk and Pull" and look at Head Halters, Harnesses – back fasten and front fasten, Choke Chains, Prong Collars, Electric collars and Masterplus Collars.
We will look at how these tools effect and influence the dog and then we will find out how to help the dog with theory and practice, including:
- Errorless learning
- Incremental learning
- Directed Scavenge
- Using limited parameters to teach the dog to actively participate in learning.
Approved for 6 CEUs for trainers and 1 CEUs for behavior consultants by the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (CCPDT)
