Training

NEW STARTS MUST PRE-BOOK 

Training is reward based initially using soft treats, praise and positive reinforcement. Vaccinations certificates to be shown on first night.  No choke collars or extending leads are allowed.  Children are welcome but must be well behaved! 

PUPPY CLASS (Puppies up to 5 months)       Monday 7 – 7.45 pm
Puppies can join on completion of their vaccination program. The class consists of socialisation, handling, good manners and advice on behaviours such as teething, toileting, biting and chewing. Your puppy will learn how to sit, lie down, stand, come, lead work, respond to name, stay and leave. Puppy time is fun time!

JUNIOR CLASS (Puppies from 5 to 8 months)      Thursday 7 – 7.45 pm
Socialisation remains the integral part of  training in this class as well as helping you have a well-behaved happy dog. We teach all the basic exercises, manners, perfecting positions, paying attention and working with and without distractions.

BEGINNER CLASS (Dogs from 5 months)       Monday/Thursday 8 – 8.45 pm
In this class we learn how to maintain the dog’s attention, teaching manners, control at door/gate, walking on loose lead, recall, advanced stays and send away.

INTERMEDIATE CLASS         Monday 8.45 – 9.30 pm
Introducing road safety stops, distance control and scent work. Teaching all exercises to a more advanced level. Working on and off lead.

ADVANCED CLASS         Thursday 8.45 – 9.30 pm
Taking all exercises to advanced level, multitasking activities, working with and without hand signals both on and off lead.

FUN NIGHT 
In this class, as an alternative to regular training sessions, we teach tricks which helps to build confidence in timid or fearful dogs. We also introduce a mini agility course to give mental stimulation.
