Horncastle Beginner Class

Our Horncastle beginner classes run on Wednesday nights at 6:45 inside the Horncastle Community Centre. 

Beginner dog training classes are a great follow on from our puppy course, for dogs over the age of 5 months that haven’t been to a training class before and for rescue or adult dogs that are being introduced to group training for the first time.
This course is initially bought in a block of 8 consecutive weeks for £85. This is to ensure that the group is never bigger than 4 dogs. However you can come for as many blocks as you would like to continue your training journey with us - at which point you can choose to pay in blocks of 4 weeks instead (£45).

During these classes we will cover and continue to build upon:
*Positions – sit, down, stand
*Not pulling on the lead
*Coming when called
*Leave cue/food manners
*Settling in exciting situations
*Handling and grooming
*Greeting without jumping up

We also cover “concepts”. These are games and activities that teach and build on:
* Confidence
* Focus
* Problem-solving skills
* Self Regulation (Impulse control etc.)
* Generalising behaviours

These are more than just pet obedience classes, they are a foundation for an amazing life long relationship with your four-legged friend.

Your very first week coming to class would be a theory week - in the form of a 30 minute video and an email full of useful information to give you a great start to classes. This makes your 2nd week your first in person class.
