Socialising your dog with people and other dogs
Building up a range of commands/instructions
Beginner Obedience (Puppy and Adult Dogs): This is a 5-week course that focuses on building a positive foundation for you and your dog. Approximately 14 commands are covered during the course, focusing on training and practicing a few new commands each week. Gentle and structured socialisation takes place weekly.
Intermediate Obedience: A 5-week course, where increased levels of control are taught to each handler and canine trainee using sequences of commands. Each handler and their dog engages in more distance work and these classes also help you begin to introduce your dog to some off-lead work.
Advanced Obedience: Some off-lead and more complex exercise/training routines are practiced weekly. Individual handlers are encouraged to make up new training routines themselves too. Behaviours like the ‘Come’ command are practiced while other dogs are moving around. A deeper understanding of your dog is fostered.
Classes last an hour and take place each week. Each 5-week course costs £60.
