So, we designed this class with these dogs in mind! This class is all about teaching self-control, working with distractions and getting your unruly beast to listen to you!
New handlers and dogs
Depending on the age and ability of your dog, we may suggest you start in the beginners class for a while to get some basic training and control working, or we may enrol you directly in this group.
What style of training do we use?
Like our other classes, we teach Clicker Training; a modern, reward based, highly effective style of training which encourages your dog to use his brain and be a partner in your training. It’s not just using treats to get results – it teaches your dog to work out what you want him to do in order to earn a reward, not just following the food.
What does training cover?
Like our other classes we teach to a curriculum which covers typical problems as well as more formalised training:
As well as anything else which comes up as an issue for the whole group.
What about my specific problems?
Like our other classes, although we teach you as a group, we work alongside you and your dog to set you specific tasks to address your problem areas.
We always recap on the previous weeks tasks to see what progress you have made, and alter your targets to help you further if you need it, or we will set a more advanced task to stretch you both further….
