Beginner Classes For Older Puppies and Dogs
These are fun and friendly group training classes for a maximum of 6 puppies per course. The course is run by a highly qualified 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 the puppy’s development.
The course will cover off the principles of reward based training, showing how all behaviour can be shaped through positive outcomes for your dog. We will provide guidance for basic behaviours such as: - Come When Called, Sit, Down, Stand, Walk on a Loose Lead, Wait and Gentle. Plus focus exercises to increase your dogs attention on you.
The course also covers lots of aspects around dog behaviour and allows time for specific questions and concerns to be addressed at the end of each class.
The course is designed to offer you a foundation for building a lifetime bond and relationship with your dog through consistent and fun use of rewards.
This course is designed for individual development of dogs with owners, and does not include any socialisation. Dogs of this age have already developed their view of the world, so our focus is on you and your dog and will give you assistance on managing and specific issues you have.
What's Included: - 6-week course – 1 hour per week. - 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.
