Here’s whats coming up in 2018:
Puppies have a LOT of learning to do in their first few months. It's a REALLY important time and needs to be handled with caution! Our Puppy Parties help them to get used to new experiences, meet & play with other puppies in a safe environment and get used to being handled by different people. **BOOKING ESSENTIAL**
Puppy training for 12 – 20 week old pups – in association with Puppy School – basic life skills, training, help and advice – bring the whole family! 6 week courses of 1 hour a week. A nationally acclaimed training programme developed by Gwen Bailey designed to give your pup the best foundation for positive learning. Classes are £80 for six weeks from 1st January 2019.
A single session, or a series of 1-2-1 sessions to teach you and your puppy the basics in your own home - without the commitment of a regular class. Suitable for all puppies aged 8 weeks to 6 months.
This informal session, in your own home, with printed handouts and heaps of tips and advice, will look at how to prepare yourself, your family and your home for a new puppy, and make sure that the dog you choose has the best possible start in its new home.
This course is about teaching your dog some fun games! The games are simple and fun and will help to improve focus, listening, name response, build confidence (in you & your dog!) and give you plenty of things to train and do on the wet winter evenings! Your dog needs no previous training to attend.
A four week course to improve lead walking, recall, jumping up and settling behaviours out and about - aimed at beginners aged 5 months and over who are happy to be close to other dogs.
Now booking for classes starting September 2018
Want your dog to come running EVERY time you call! This mini course will help you on the way to a reliable recall, and give your dog freedom from being on the lead! A small, focussed class with the emphasis on building a better relationship with your dog. For dogs over 6 months who are friendly towards other dogs both on and off lead.
Puppy University is designed as a follow on class to Puppy School and is offered to Puppy School Graduates, or puppies who have completed Puppy 1 training through the Kennel Club Good Citizen Scheme.
Next class with space starts 7th September 2018
If you have a dog, of any age, with an annoying habit, or who just needs some basic training, then a 1-2-1 session might be a better option. Held in your own home, or somewhere where you & the dog feel comfortable, we will assess the issues causing concern and offer some practical and manageable solutions.
