“The Dog House” Behavioural Stage

So What's In-store?

Adem is a leading behavioural expert and trainer who, along with other guests and possibly a few owners, will conduct a range of live demonstrations in our Dog House Behaviour stage.

To bring everything to life, we’re going to do something pretty cool. Dogstival has decided to build a house. Well, one cut in half, like a ‘film set design’, fill it with furniture and create a garden so we can replicate life in a typical home. Each demonstration will be interactive and designed to get people and their dogs up on stage. We’ll discuss the different life stages of dogs and common problems that may occur during these life stages.

We’ll look at common breed specific behavioural issues and how to prevent and tackle these in everyday life. Owners are invited to send in videos of their dogs and their behavioural issues and participants will be selected prior to the show commencing.
