Puppy Course (Saturdays at Blakeney 9:45-11:00 am) This course is strictly limited to 8 puppies
A seven week course for which the fee is payable on the first day of class. It is for vaccinated puppies who are under twenty weeks of age when class commences. The course covers all the basics your puppy needs to prepare him or her for a happy life with you. The training is ‘clicker’ based which is a quick, easy and clear method of helping your puppy understand what you want him to learn. Puppies are rewarded for good behaviour and correct responses. Don’t let the thought of using a clicker put you off – if you don’t get on with it after the first couple of weeks we will use an alternative. NO harsh or forceful methods are employed or allowed and everything is designed to make you and your puppy work in harmony.
During the course you and your puppy will learn to settle, watch, sit, down, stand, come, stay, leave, walk nicely and greet people politely. You will also be taught to understand your puppy’s behaviour and how dogs think and learn.
Beginners Dog Training Class (Saturdays at Blakeney 11:00 – 12:00 pm)
This class is for youngsters who have completed the puppy course and are continuing their training. It is also for older puppies who have missed out on early training and adult dogs, including rescued dogs, who are just starting training. It is also suitable for dogs who have undergone behavioural therapy for their problems and are ready to work in company.
You and your dog will extend your abilities in the basics, learn to work as a group and enable progression to the Intermediate Class.
