Dog School Classes are held weekly (one evening per week) over a 9 week term. The Dog School is for dogs who have had little or no previous training and is suitable for dogs of any age, from young puppies through to veterans. The classes are designed to teach the basic obedience skills necessary to become well mannered pets using kind, effective methods.
Group sizes are limited to a maximum of 6 dogs per class to ensure that everyone gets the individual attention they need. Pre-registration is required and places on each course are filled on a first come first served basis.
The exercises that are covered include:-
- Lying Down (optional)
- Walking on a Loose Lead
- Not Jumping Up at People
- Leave (not stealing as opposed to exiting the premises!!)
- Handling & Health Checks
- Interactive Play
In addition to the in-class explanations and practice for each exercise, you will also receive printed handouts to take home.
You are very welcome to come and watch classes before enrolling.
The Dog School is for puppies and dogs who are not experiencing behavioural problems, beyond a lack of training! The training hall environment is not a suitable place to address aggression problems towards other dogs. If your dog is aggressive towards other dogs, or if you are experiencing a different type of behaviour problem, or if you would prefer private training lessons, please have a look at the One-to-One Training and Behaviour Problems pages.
