Commitment

We ask you to make a commitment to training – a commitment to your dog… to attend each class, read and watch the resources and take time to train each day.  Great things can happen when we work together as a team with your dog!

 

Training

We believe in fun, reward-based coaching... because it works!  Our training classes help pups learn how to live in our world, while enjoying their life as a dog.  We don’t use or condone intimidation or punishment.

 

  • Classes last around an hour.

  • Arrive at the hall 5 minutes early – this will help your dog to settle before the class starts.

  • It’s best not to feed your dog a full meal for an hour or two before class.

  • Keep your dog onlead at all times, unless you are asked otherwise by a trainer.

  • Let’s presume that your classmates don’t want other people or dogs in close proximity – this includes when you enter and exit the venue.  Please ask kids not to approach other dogs without a Trainer’s permission.

Bring to each class:

  • Lots of tiny reward treats - bring a few separate bags/containers, with tasty food such as cooked meat or cheese, cut into very small pieces

  • Treat pouch

  • Your dog’s favourite toy (no squeakies please and ball toys should have handles)

  • Long-lasting edible chew, or food-filled toy (for example, a Kong™)

  • Harness and long line, if you use them

  • Dog towel, if it’s wet outside

  • Your dog!  Wearing a flat collar, walking lead and harness (if used).  No retractable or slip leads.

We will provide:

  • Seating for attendees

  • A mat for your dog to lie on and their own water bowl

  • A goodie bag at your first class

Notes

  • If you can’t attend a training session, let us know as soon as possible, as we tailor each class to the attendees.

  • If you are displaying any symptoms of Covid-19 or other infectious illness, are waiting on the results of a test, or have been asked to self-isolate – please do not attend training and let us know immediately.

  • If your dog is injured, in season or ill, they may not be well enough to train – ask your vet for advice and contact us before the training session.

  • Throughout training, handlers are fully responsible for their dogs.

Children

  • We welcome children to our events and encourage them to participate in training. 

  • All kids under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. 

  • If possible, bring someone else to look after children under 8 years old, so you can concentrate on your dog.

  • Young kids can become bored, so it’s best if they bring something to play with, to help them sit quietly. 

Current Government health guidance will be followed.
