ALL ABOUT BELLA AMICA
POSITIVE DOG TRAINING
Adopting Bella, Andy has been able to put in to practice what he has learnt from extensive dog training. He has not only been able to help Bella rehabilitate to a calmer, happier state but has also picked up qualifications in Dog Training and Canine Psychology from the International School of Canine Psychology and the Institute of Modern Dog Trainers. He is also a fully qualified Canine First Aider. He is a proud member of the Insitute of Modern Dog Trainers practising only methods of training that support and reinforce good behaviours in a humane and constructive way.
Bella Amica means 'Beautiful Friend' in Italian. Located at the Horseshoes Riding School on Dean Street in East Farleigh, the dog school aims to offer every dog the chance to enjoy life whilst allowing owners to feel confident and happy that their training is effective and also humane.
Bella is a stray who came over from Ireland. Suffering from severe anxiety and reactivity to other dogs and humans, she has coped with the trauma that her past has dealt her. She's also missing her tail, an event that possibly shines some light on her issues.

OUR KIND HOSTS
THE HORSE RIDING SCHOOL
The Horseshoes Riding School was opened in 1981 by Anthony and Rosalind Hargreaves with their young sons Stephen and Nigel. They started off with 1 horse called Araby and a pony called Butternut! The School today is still under the same management and is a thriving business with 7 instructors and 48 horses and ponies and is as family friendly now as it ever was.
They kindly play host to our Private 1-to-1 sessions and our group classes.
