Dog training and classes

Puppy class

We welcome all puppies up to 5 month. In this class we concentrate on socialising your puppy with other dogs and people, showing you how to teach your puppy the basics like sit, down, come, walk on a loose lead and look at how to establish some basic rules for a relaxed life with your puppy.

Training Tip: Start training as early as possible and keep it fun for your puppy.

 

Basic Dog Training

This class is open to all dogs from 6 month onwards that had no or very little training.

We will have a look at how to get basic control of your dog, progress the basic exercises like sit, down, stand, stay, walking your dog on a loose lead past distractions and recalling the dog in difficult situations.

Training Tip: Build up your training in small steps, if you make the exercises too hard, training will be frustrating for you and your dog!

Advanced Dog Training

If you and your dog already had some basic training and you want to further your training skills the Advanced Dog Training course is open to you.

We will work on getting off lead control over the dog, control the dog at a distance and more exercises to help you to train your dog up to a point where you two can enjoy relaxed walks and manage common situations.

Training Tip: Your confidence is one of the keys to a successful relationship between you and your dog.

 

Open School House

The Open School House is a pet obedience group for those dog and handler teams that have done the Advanced Dog Training Class. We will further your skills on off lead control and work on new challenges that you might face in every day life.

Training Tip: Learning and Training is like rowing against the stream – if you stop you will slip backwards.

 

Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme

This year, we will offer our pupils to pass the Kennel Club Good Citizen Bronze, Silver and Gold Assessment as they achieve the required training standard.

 

Canine Jobcenter

Do you fancy doing more with your dog than just going for walks?

You want to do something different to Obedience or Agility?

Do you fancy a little helping paw in the house or are you just sick of searching for your key ring?

This group is for people that are interested in the possibilities of Clicker Training, teaching their dog tricks, Nose work & article search, Heelwork to Music and a lot more.

The Canine Jobcenter is open to dogs and handlers who already had some basic training. We don’t work on doggy manners on this course – so sorry, only dogs with sociable behaviour and handlers with a good basic control over their dogs.
