Small classes (5-6 dogs) teaching life skills, while building on foundation behaviours, or for those who didn't attend puppy classes.
Adolescent dogs can find it difficult to concentrate and sometimes appear to have forgotten everything they learned as a puppy! They may act more independently at times and then suddenly seem wary of things that used to be ok. Newly adopted dogs can find it challenging to settle in their new home. And dogs who have missed early training can behave in ways that we find problematic. It's best to remain calm and patient with your dog, guiding them in a fun and positive way - training together is a great way to build a trusting relationship.
In classes, we focus on strengthening your connection with your dog and teaching good manners, including walking with a loose lead and coming back to you when called. We also cover mental stimulation & enrichment – encouraging calm, happy dogs.
All members of the family are encouraged to come along and train together. The first class is a fun Handler's Workshop, for 'humans' only, where we explore how dogs learn and how we can teach them effectively.
You will receive a goodie bag, advice handouts and your dog gains a Certificate and Rosette on successful completion of the course.
Note: these classes are not suitable for dogs that are over-reactive towards people or other dogs. To provide individual help and support, we would recommend a 1-2-1 training session. If you are in any doubt, please contact us to discuss.
