Dog and Puppy Training

As Consultants in Animal Behaviour, we see many difficulties which could have been avoided, so we began offering training lessons as a way of developing an understanding between dog and family, and preventing difficulties.  We run group courses and also offer individual sessions, using training methods based on reward and motivation.

Class Training

The  Part 1 Good Puppy course 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.

The Part 2 course is for dogs who have completed either a Good Dog or Good Puppy course.  We are able to cover training themes in more depth and introduce new topics.  We also work towards the Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme Puppy Foundation Assessment Award.

The classes are fun and enjoyable for dogs and owners.  The dog walks and outdoor lessons 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 or she needs to know to fit in with your family and be a well-behaved pet for years to come.

We have small classes with a maximum of seven dogs. This means that there is time for individual attention and we can make sure that every puppy and dog is getting what they need from the course.

All the family are invited to attend, as we feel it is extremely important that everyone is involved with a family dog. Children are most welcome to come along and be involved in the classes.
