    • We both loved the way Sheila Harper presented herself - not to 'tell' or 'advise' us on what to believe or not (like many trainers do in a sometimes intimidating manner) but to allow us to think...
    • It was superbly facilitated and directed with dog handling, case studies, and in-depth perspective being important.
    • Sheila is not into "Sit", "Down", "Stay". The concentration is on having a positive and gentle development with your dog - you are a team - so that you can both enjoy...
    • I have been to presentations before where your attention starts to wander and where you can’t wait for the course to end. I was completely focused on this course for the whole 2 days; there was...
    • “What a weekend that was! Will life with my dog ever be the same again? I hope not! I now have some tools for a new start with my first ever dog who, at 14 months, had lost his trust in me...
    • “I soon realised that my inexperience really didn’t matter, as what we had come to learn about was new to everyone. We all had a similar motivation for doing the course. To do the best...
    • “A wonderfully stimulating and well organised weekend. It exceeded my expectations both in content and presentation.”
    • “I admire Sheila’s passion, calm positive energy and tireless motivation for teaching and sharing her profound, pioneering and unique philosophy and knowledge of dogs and owners.”
    • “I learned a great deal and ‘Bod’ was so relaxed and stress free due to your fantastic organisation. I do so appreciate how much hard work and thought goes into the preparation of...

    • “I wanted to say a big thank you for the hard work and time put into the courses and for the patience and understanding of where I am at and what I have still to learn. It could be quite...
    • “We haven't been able to stop thinking about what we learnt and we're hungry for more. We bought half a dozen books to keep us going!”

    The Holiday Club

    We've created a Holiday Club that's all about dogs. Every year, Sheila Harper Limited organises Dog Centred Holidays in different locations to give you and your dog the activity holiday they would choose, as opposed to one we think they want; or worse still the one we want!! So this year we have organised holidays in Staffordshire, around Cannock Chase which focus on Nosework; your dog's window to the world; and Social Skills -full of stimulating yet relaxing activities that make sense to your dog.

    In Devon during 2014, we organised our Natural Abilities Holiday designed to support your dog as they use their wonderful skills and senses in ways that they enjoy and which help build their confidence and esteem. All the best holidays included good periods of rest and this is important for our dogs. So while they chill we can take the chance to understand more about their skills and abilities and how we can help them with the daily challenges that confront them in our world.
