Very exciting times at BDWS!

by | Jan 3, 2012 | 0 comments

We are very proud to announce that we will be having a very special guest blogger joining us over the next few weeks.  Beverley Cobley, an extremely qualified and learned dog behaviourist with over 35 years experience of training all breeds of gun dog, including over 30 years experience working and caring for Clumber Spaniels will be posting a series of posts to our blog.  For those who visit dog forums, Bev (better known online as Kizkiznobite) is the central figure at Dog Club – a very popular forum where dog owners from all over the UK and the world come to talk about dogs, receive help and share information.

Over the next few weeks, Bev will be writing a series of articles for those thinking about getting a dog, whether it be a puppy or a rescue and the correct way of going about things to give that new dog the best start to their new lives.

So if you are getting a puppy or a rescue this will be an essential guide that you cannot afford to miss!


There’s so much to learn about food and what to feed the dog.  To begin with we all think it’s all about buying expensive ‘premium’ foods,… then if we research we discover it’s not that simple!  What we feed our dogs can harm or benefit them and interfere or enhance their behaviour and well being. Bev’s series of articles will inform you of what you need to know about feeding your dog good healthy food at a good healthy price.

Whether you have a new puppy, have recently taken on a new rescue dog, or would like to understand and communicate better with your current dog(s) I can help. I can share with you my knowledge of dog behaviour and training gained over 35 years and starting with simple exercises to get you ‘thinking dog’ we can work together to achieve your goals.

 “It is not once nor twice but times without number that the same ideas make their appearance in the world.”  Aristotle

The human aim to harness a dog’s abilities is as old as the relationship between man and his ‘best friend’.  As our knowledge increases in breadth and depth new techniques are introduced, and existing ones are refined or disguarded.  To achieve my excellent results, I use a range of positive teaching methods which make training a rewarding, fun experience for dogs and owners alike.
