About our classes

Some of the skills that you will learn to teach your dog during our classes are:

 

Loose lead walking: Teaching the dog to walk without pulling on the lead.

Recall: Teaching the dog to come back when it is called from a variety of distractions.

Don’t jump up: Not to jump up on people who approach the owner or the dog themselves.

Leave: To leave or avoid someone or something when told.

Stay: To remain in a position until released by the owner.

Play: How to play appropriately, and in a way likely to make the dog want to play with the owner.

Handling: How to teach the dog to accept being handled and examined.

 

Puppy classes are not strictly for puppies. It is for Puppy's 1 year or under or dog's with little to no training experience. Puppies need to learn how to behave around dogs of all ages. Your puppy will after all meet fully grown dogs when they go out on walks, and if they do not know how to behave, they are likely to get themselves into trouble.

 

 

NOTE: DOGS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO JOIN THE CLASS IF THEY ARE VOCAL TOWARDS OTHER DOGS

 

If they are aggressive or barking through out - it can be very off putting for the other dogs in the class, plus, putting them into a hall full of untrained dogs is unlikely to make them feel any better, and may make them worse. To be able to train your dog effectively they should be relaxed and able to focus on you not their surroundings, for that reason we recommend separate 1-2-1 sessions for dogs that have these types of issues.
