Follow-on Classes for Puppy School Graduates
Puppy University is an advanced group class for dogs who have completed Puppy School or similar formal training classes.
These are fun and friendly group training classes for a maximum of 6 dogs per course. The course is run by a highly qualified ‘Puppy University’ tutor and assistants (see ‘Meet The Team’) to offer encouragement and support for you and your dog.
The course consists of 6 weekly one hour classes. Classes can be attended by all family members, including children, to provide consistency throughout your dog’s development.
The course will cover more advanced progressions of reward based training, building on what dogs have learned in Puppy School. We will provide guidance for developing advanced behaviours that can endure distractions, distance and longer duration such as: Sit, Stay, Wait, Fetch, Find, Item Identification, Settle, Trick Development and Advanced Walking with a 'loose lead'.
You and your dog will benefit from a progressive curriculum of activities that will help develop confidence and control in everyday life, from entering and exiting doorways to control of your dog in public areas. Your dog will love all aspects of the course, being rewarded every step of the way.
The course is designed to offer you greater knowledge and set of techniques to continue building your relationship with your dog offering opportunities to develop ongoing skills or take up additional activities with your dog.
What's Included: - 6-week course – 1 hour per week. - Professional training notes. - Certificate and rosette on successful graduation. - Access to professional tutors and ongoing support. - A fun and rewarding way of learning with your dog.
