In this Riviera Firefly Episode Antonia talks with the Fairy Dogmother Dawn Howard. Dawn is a dog behaviourist and even had to train a dog on a super yacht!
Dawn Howard from Dogs d’Azur is the French Riviera’s local dog expert. She is a dog behaviourist helping people to live happily alongside their furry friends, she actively helps refuge dogs find new homes and she also has a background in writing and editing.
We cover topics such as Education for children and adults, Places to visit, Health and lifestyle, hobbies and leisure and have lots of fun here in the Alpes Maritimes. We also talk to inspiring local entrepreneurs and small businesses about how they started their careers in France, dealing with administration and what brought them here in the first place. Topical issues such as Brexit and what this means to expats will also be covered in 2017. Our online directory and magazine can be found on www.rivierafirefly.com
KEY POINTS What to expect from the programme.[03:00] Dawn loved school and went to a convent in England. She came to France when her husband relocated with his job. She has a background editing for the Daily Mail. [05:00}I had so many questions for Dawn ..Dog training how she got into it , what is it and how does it work with Dawn. Areas that can be trained.. walking on a lead, getting rid of a fear, toilet training. It’s not training the dog it’s training you and training the family. [10:00] Are dogs bilingual? Non verbal skills ‘wait’ ‘stay'[11:00} What is positive only method.

Brilliant interview – Informative and funny.
More like this please!!
Really brilliant and interesting podcast.
Loved it. So informative, so interesting . Thank you Dawn and Antonia.
Really enjoyed the podcast. So glad you mentioned the fact that the dogs in refuges are there mainly because of changes in their owners’ circumstanes. You spoke about the caterpillars in the Pine Forest – there is also the potential danger of pine needles going up the dog’s nose – can be fatal.
Look forward to your next one.
Thanks for pointing that out – walking can be a challenge sometimes!
