Beginners

Please note no classes starting until November once the awful roadworks have finished!

Smart and Sassy Beginners

This is a course focused on having a well behaved dog, but also doing fun training exercises with them, without the pressure of a test at the end. This is the next stage on from puppy foundation. Also suitable for beginners and dogs new to training. This is a good course to do before starting the KC Bronze award, or for anyone wanting to start doing some training with their dog, in a fun and relaxed course. Suitable for Dogs from 5 months of age.

Things we cover include:

Full formal recall. Finish. Wait. Stay. Hold & give. Sit/Down/Stand and proofing these a bit more. Lots of heel work, including heel work commands (close, back etc), as well as loose-lead walking. We also cover some fun exercises such as ‘hit it’ and Search.

The course lasts 5 weeks (5 sessions).

Dogs must be friendly with dogs and people, and non-reactive. They must be suitable to work in a group environment.
