Puppy Training Class

Puppy training classes are suitable for puppies up to 26 weeks of age and are valuable for teaching appropriate socialisation, key life skills and basic obedience. We will be supporting you in laying important foundations which you will continue to build upon. Throughout the course, your pup’s confidence will continue to grow along with the relationship between you both.

Classes run for 5 weeks and each session lasts 50 mins.

What will we cover on the course?

  • Focus around distractions
  • Basic commands such as Sit & Down
  • Impulse control such as Wait, Leave and not jumping up
  • How to settle & be calm
  • Introduction to teaching your puppy to come when called
  • How to teach your dog to walk on a loose lead
  • Introduction to novelty items for confidence building

Puppies must have completed their initial vaccinations prior to attending the course.

 

Foundation Class

The 5 week foundation course is a follow -on course from the puppy course or a beginners class for dogs older than 6 months at the start of the course.

Your dog will explore exercises and training techniques to help them in their day to day lives. 

This is a mixed ability course. We adapt the behaviours to suit your dog’s level.  If your dog is already familiar with a behaviour, we look at proofing their skills by extending distances, introducing distractions and building on duration.  This makes it easier for them to perform your commands in a variety of settings and become more reliable. 

What will we cover on the course?

  • Focus around distractions
  • Impulse control such as Wait, Leave and not jumping up
  • How to settle & be calm
  • Teaching your dog to come when called
  • Teaching your dog to walk on a loose lead
  • Proofing behaviours learnt in the puppy course
  • How to handle and groom your puppy

 

Improvers Class

The 4 week Improvers course is a follow-on course from the Foundation course.

You and your dog will learn how to proof and strengthen the behaviours learnt in the previous course. These are skills your dog requires to be well behaved and well mannered in public places.

What will we cover on the course?

  • Focus around outdoor distractions
  • Impulse control
  • Proof behaviours such as Wait & Leave
  • Recall around distractions
  • Walking on a loose lead / Heel – on and off lead
  • Retrieve
  • Play

 

Dog Club

Have you worked through the Puppy Training, Foundation and Improvers Life Skills courses but still enjoy coming to class with your dog as a weekly activity? Do you enjoy spending some one to one time with your dog? Or perhaps you and your dog just love to learn?

Join Dog Club! A mixture of life skills, basic obedience, fun agility, scentwork, trick training and basic gundog. It runs as a 4 week block but you can keep coming back as many times as you like!

Each session lasts 50 mins. You must have attended at least two courses or had a 1:1 session to assess the level of your dog’s training prior to joining Dog Club. NB. It is also possible to ‘drop in’ at Dog Club.

 

Walk N Train

Do you struggle with recall or focus around other dogs? Perhaps you want to practise your dog’s training in a real life environment with expert guidance.

The ‘Walk n Train’ courses are a great opportunity to practice all you have learnt in class, on a walk in the local area. We will look at appropriate play and learn to read your dog’s interactions.

You must have attended another course or had a 1:1 training session before joining this course. Each session lasts 60 mins. Each new course is run in a different location.
