Garbo's German Shepherd Dog Rescue
Garbo's German Shepherd Dog Rescue is a non-profit Volunteer organization dedicated to finding the right home for each dog in its care. They take in unwanted German Shepherd dogs and provide shelter and care for them until they can find them a secure and loving home. They promote responsible dog ownership and provide an after care advice, support and guidance service for the new pet owner. They need dedicated and caring owners to adopt their dogs are sadly given intto rescue for many diverse reasons e.g. owners become ill, divorce, go abroad, are evicted from their homes or can no longer afford such a large pet. Often the dog is very much loved and the owner is trying to do the "right thing" for the dog in difficult circumstances.
Garbo's Rescue is based at Heathrow situated in a peaceful setting next to several fishing lakes. Whilst maintaining its rural appeal, the kennels are only minutes from the M4, M25 and London Heathrow Airport. They also kennel our rescues at Green Lane Farm Kennels which is set within a quiet location in Chessington. They also have fabulous home based support in Sussex where they have the chance to rehabilitate some of our rescues before rehoming.

INTERACTIVE PLAY SKILLS WORKSHOP WITH CRAIG OGILVIE
NEW WORKSHOP! SATURDAY 16TH NOVEMBER
Internationally renowned seminar leader and author Craig Ogilvie is a highly experienced Certified Canine Behaviourist and Trainer, Police Dog Training Instructor and Mondioring Decoy (Licensed in France).
In January the club had a fabulous day with Craig who taught us how to use Interactive Play to help create a unique and special experience to share with our dogs. A great way to reinforce our training in any discipline.
We received some lovely feedback which is wonderfully covered by this thank you….
“What a brilliant morning! Thank you all, for organising the workshop so beautifully and, as always, for the delicious cakes and warm welcome. We loved Craig’s way with both dogs and humans, what an inspiring and talented young man. His ability to spot issues and provide help/ solutions within minutes of meeting is impressive, he so obviously loves dogs and goodness don’t they love him back! We are feeling inspired if a little exhausted!” These sentiments were echoed by many.
We had people come from as far as London to participate. Dogs and their handlers all had a varied level of skills, and because Craig worked with dogs individually, the day was inclusive to all. It was an absolute pleasure to host and such a rewarding day.
So much so that we are holding another one on 16th November 2019. If you are interested, please do get in touch.
Craig will teach you how using interactive play helps to create a unique and special experience to share with your dog. He works with each dog individually so he will help you from scratch or build on what you can already do together.
Time: 9.30, 12.00, 14.30
£45.00 per dog and one handler (6 dog/handlers per workshop)
£15.00 spectator (spectate one workshop)
