Group Classes

Dog and Puppy Training

As Consultants in Animal Behaviour, we see many difficulties which could have been avoided and therefore we began offering training lessons as a way of developing an understanding between dog and family and preventing difficulties.  Our methods are based on rewards and motivation.

We run group courses and also offer individual sessions.

Class Training

The “Good Puppy” course is a five week course. It is for puppies as young as possible, they should start as soon as the owner and veterinary surgeon are happy that the puppy has completed the vaccination programme. Puppies must be under 20 weeks at the start of the course.

We have had puppies as young as thirteen weeks and dogs as old as thirteen years who have successfully completed the course. We are able to cover topics in more depth and are able to cover more areas.  We also work towards the Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme Puppy Foundation Assessment Award.

The classes, held inside, are fun and enjoyable for dogs and owners.  The regular dog walks, and outdoor lesson which forms part of the Good Dog Course, are unique and enhance the learning experience for you and your dog.

All the classes are for pet dogs. They are aimed at teaching your dog the things he needs to know to fit in with your family and be a well-behaved pet for years to come.

We have small classes which means that there is time for individual attention and we can make sure that every puppy and dog is getting what he needs from the course. The size of class varies according to the requirements of the dogs attending, with ten as the maximum number.

All the family are invited to attend. We feel that it is extremely important that everyone is involved with a family dog and therefore, we like as many people to attend as would like to come. Children are most welcome to come along and be involved, provided they are well behaved.

Group classes are mostly on Thursdays
