Dog training Classes

It's Time to Start Your Adventures​

The ‘Foundation Programme’ dog training classes are for those dogs that have missed out on any previous training or rescue dogs where their history is unknown. This programme gives them the fundamentals missed previously and builds on that to another level.

We go back to basics and make sure your dog has the foundational knowledge usually gained in a puppy class. We then take this forward and build on that. During the training you will find the bond between you and your dog grow stronger over time. Its great to get the family involved in the training so we are happy for multiple members of the family to attend, including kids.

Course details are below

Foundation Programme

With this Foundation Programme we aim to cover most of the areas our puppy course would cover but as the dogs are older and more mature we can take things that little bit further.

Basic Cues

Your dog may know some of the most common cues. Applying them in the best way for your dog to learn and understanding their use is vital to the health and safety of your dog. We will coach you how to perfect these easily and methodically. Sit, Stay, Wait, Down, Leave, Touch, Watch . . . . .

Socialisation / Habituation

Most dogs should be well socialised by 6 months old and have a wide experience of the world out there. We will make sure there are no challenges in this area for you and you dog and advise you of the best methods to overcome issues.

Life Skills

We will help and advise you with all the common questions, including toilet training, Settling in any situation, sleeping habits, mouthing / nipping, separation anxiety, chewing, confidence building and how to introduce your your dog to children and other dogs or pets in your household.

Loose Lead Walking

We all know how frustrating it is when your dog starts pulling, lunging or criss-crossing in front of you on walks. With our easy to learn method for teaching loose lead walking, you will soon have a happy walk for you and your puppy!

Recalls

A strong recall is one of the key skills to have in your pocket to confidently allow your dog off lead in the park or other open spaces. The ability to have your dog come straight back to you when called is very satisfying and can keep them from possible dangers.
