Calling All Border Terror Owners… Sorry, Terriers! Border Terrier Owners!


Join our Terrier Expert, Rhiannon, for an afternoon deep dive into the world of Border Terriers.


This feisty, independent breed can often be misunderstood and seen as stubborn and difficult. But, like many breeds, they just need understanding and motivation in a way that works with their natural instincts rather than against them! 


This workshop is for you if you have a Border Terrier and have any of the following struggles:


  • Motivating your dog or finding the right rewards. 
  • Focus and attention when on walks.
  • Recalling around distractions – especially the small, furry kind.
  • Barking at… everything.
  • Digging up your lawn and plants. 


If you want to gain the knowledge and the skills to truly understand and motivate this gritty, fun breed and to have a harmonious relationship with your Border, then you can’t miss out on this opportunity. 


At Boomerang Dogs, we help owners work towards a shared goal of enjoying life together with their dog, and this workshop unlocks the secrets of that for Border Terrier guardians.


Rhiannon owns three Border Terriers, two of which she has taken to Crufts, and has really learnt what makes this breed special. She has worked up and down the country with Border Terrier parents, sharing her knowledge and leading to many success stories.


This 3-hour workshop will cover:

Focus and Engagement – Border Terriers default to engaging with the environment. Using fun games and training exercises, we will show you how you can shift their focus onto you, boosting relationship, listening skill and recall.

Using Their Nose – These natural hunters love to use their nose, so let’s get involved with them. Using trailing and scent games, we show your dog how to make scent a game for the both of you.

Enrichment – Activities you can do that tick all of your terrier’s boxes for fun and fulfilment. Digging, hunting, dissection – all the things they like to do best, but in a controlled way that works for us too.

Self Control – A big ask for our impulsive Borders, but broken down into achievable steps. We will show you how to build self control with food and toys which can then be extended to hunting and prey. 

Coat Care – Find out all about hand stripping, watch a demo and get to ask questions, as well as find out about other aspects of Border Terrier care.


  • Suitable for all aged Border Terriers.
  • Perfect for those who can’t attend regular training. 
  • Essential knowledge for Border Terrier owners




What ticket type do I need?

Handler – This is a space for one dog and their humans. 

Member – This is a space for one dog and their humans at our special member rate for members only. You must log in and book with the email associated with your membership for the discount to apply.

Spectator – This is a space for one human to come along and learn without their dog. This might be because your dog is not suitable for a group environment but you still want to gain knowledge and learn training exercises to do at home.


Is it suitable for my dog? 

This workshop is suitable for people and dog-friendly dogs that can eat treats in most situations. It is not suitable for highly reactive or overly nervous dogs. If you are unsure, please give us a call on 02921 200013 or use the contact button on this page.


How will the workshop work?

The workshop will be a mixture of theory and practical learning. We will start with dogs in the car while your trainer talks through exercises, so your dogs need to be comfortable to relax in the car for short periods. There will be breaks for you and your dog and refreshments available.
