For your older puppy or adult dog, dog training for pet obedience are divided into Beginners and Advanced, each lasting for 45 minutes. They are an excellent opportunity both to educate your dog and to keep him socialised with other dogs and people. I use kind, proven training methods, with plenty of variety and stimulation to hold your dog’s interest. We will discuss an aspect of dog training or management during the class and you will have time to ask questions during the session. Class sizes are limited so that your dog can be relaxed, you have room to move easily and do not wait endlessly when we are taking turns to perform an exercise.
One to One Training
One to one training sessions can be useful for an adult dog who has previously received no training, particularly if he is nervous or unsettled. Once started in this way, his confidence and yours will increase so that he can join a regular class and you will both be ready to continue training in this environment.
These consist of a small group of owners and dogs walking for an hour, stopping occasionally to carry out exercises. They are not like a formal class, but will provide opportunities for you to work with your dog, develop and test his responsiveness in the”great outdoors” rather than in an enclosed training area. It will also allow him to play off-lead with other dogs in the group and it is hoped you will enjoy the opportunity to chat with other likeminded dog owners.
