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.
1 family member can bring the dog to class (with the option to swap handlers each week). Each week a recap email reminds you what we have covered - allowing the entire family to enjoy and share in the training fun!
This course is initially bought in a block of 8 consecutive weeks for £75. This is to ensure that the group is never bigger than 6 dogs (5 during Covid). 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 (£40).
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:
* 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.
