Dog behaviour and obedience
Puppies up to eight months of age can enjoy supervised on and off-lead play time that will help build their social skills in a comfortable, controlled environment.
This three-week course is for puppies of six months and under. Owners can enjoy learning about dog psychology, preventing puppies from jumping up, coaching on basic cues and much more.
Basic obedience under and over six months
Both of these courses run for six weeks and aim to coach both owner and dog in the art of basic communication. Some of the exercises covered include “sit”, “down”, “recall”, “wait”, “leave” and lead control.
A six-week course building upon the obedience learnt in the basic classes. Included is the introduction of hand signals, cues from a distance, the “emergency stop” and bridging the gap from luring the dog with treats to weaning off food rewards. Distraction control will also be built upon.
A six-week course following on from the intermediate course. Dogs must have either completed the previous course or attended an assessment and achieved a specified level of obedience. Introducing off-lead heel control, stranger danger coaching and topics such as “sit in motion”, further distance control and higher levels if distraction are worked upon.
Dogs from eight months of age upwards can enjoy social time with each other whilst owners can gain advice and ask any questions they may have from the supervising professional during the session.
These sessions are bespoke and tailored to address any obedience areas that the owner feels the need to improve upon.

These appointments are for owners whose dogs require more than just obedience training.
