Classes

Puppy Beginners
Class Times – 6.00pm to 7.00pm
This class is aimed at helping you to get to know your new puppy (maximum 12 months old) and is a great way to allow your puIMG_1178ppy to socialise with other puppies of a similar age. It will lay down a foundation for their further education and training. We accept puppies as soon as they have completed their primary course of vaccinations (normally around 14 weeks).

Puppies will be able to respond to their handlers and respond to basic commands, sit, down, stay, come. Handlers will have an awareness of the responsibilities of dog ownership. You will be encouraged to play and talk to your dog making it much more enjoyable for both handler and dog but, at the same time, achieving your aim in getting your dog to perform the exercises. Time and patience is required, from both the handler and the puppy, but it is well worthwhile. 

 

Pre-Beginners

This class is a natural progression of practical dog training skills and introduces new concepts and a greater level of distractions which are important in everyday life situations.

Dogs will be able to demonstrate advanced exercises such as a controlled greeting, food manners and will be expected to stay in a position for two minutes. Any dog that has reached this level will be a pleasure to own!

Beginners
Class Times – 8.00pm to 9.00pm

This class highlights the skills learned in previous classes, while introducing new concepts such as being able to leaveIMG_1283 the dog in relaxed isolation, stopping your dog in an emergency situation, recalls, stays and heel work. It aims to provide handlers with a greater knowledge and understanding of their canine companion and to produce dogs who are happy, contented and well behaved. On completion, handlers should have their dogs fully under their control. Furthermore, they will understand their responsibilities to their dogs, their neighbours and the community.
