To meet you and your dog’s needs and abilities I have divided the Obedience Training course into 3 separate areas: Foundation, The Improvers and The Advanced course.
This eight week Foundation Course is ideal for graduates of our puppy training and young dogs with little formal training experience.
You will develop your general handling skills and your dog's focus and concentration. All basic obedience commands are covered and games, circuit training and obstacle courses are introduced. The course aim is to develop the bond between you and your dog, helping you keep control in stimulating surroundings.
The Improvers Course runs for eight weeks and takes the skills you and your dog have learnt on the Foundation Course to the next level. The course is also suitable for dogs with good basic obedience. You will learn how to be less reliant on treats to gain the desired behaviour and how to guide your dog through a series of commands.
The Advanced class allows you to test your dog's skills with exercises of increasing difficulty, duration and distance, whilst still maintaining an emphasis on fun and sociability. Off-lead work is introduced as well as the distance sit, emergency down and advanced find and retrieve.
Group classes run on Sundays and are bookable in blocks of 8 lessons.
