This class is suitable for young dogs coming out of the puppy class, or if you are a new owner with a dog aged 5-8m. We do accept older dogs into this group, depending on their needs for training.
What style of training do we use?
As with all our classes, we teach Clicker Training. This is 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 bribe your dog –its all about working in a style where your dog actually learns and understands what you want.
What does training cover?
We think that teaching you problem solving skills and an understanding of your dog is vital! After all, you need to be able to teach your dog and address problems when you stop coming to us, so this is an integrated part of our classes.
We aim to include the aspects of the APDT Good Companion Awards so that your dog is well prepared for their life in your family (see www.APDT.co.uk).
