Training

TRAINING is essential for any dog, be it big or small. The object of our group is to help the owners have an enjoyable canine companion who is friendly, obedient and socially acceptable in the community in todays antidog society. A dog who basically will be a pleasure to own.

Our training is purely for 'pet' obedience, not for competition. We also teaching responsible dog ownership as required by the law. Also dog behaviour so that you can 'read' your dog and understand why it behaves the way it does, in the home and outside. We assist you and your dog to be sociable with all other dogs and people. We hope to achieve this through kind and gentle training methods using reward and praise for the dogs.
 
Naturally the younger the dog the easier it is for you and your pet before you both develop any bad habits. The old saying that 'you can't teach an old dog new tricks' is not true as long as you are prepared to put in the work and persevere.

However it is impossible to give the time needed in a class situation to an owner who has a dog with a serious behavioural problem, especially as it maybe a distraction to the rest of the class. Some problems need to be discussed at length on a 'one-2-one' basis with specialised training and advice designed specifically for the dog. These sessions can be arranged by contacting us by phone or email and can be held at the owners home (dogs own territory) or at the trainers if more convenient.

EQUIPMENT

LEADS/COLLARS - when you come to classes it is best to have a good strong lead aboout 6ft long and a good fitting combi collar.We DO NOT recomend flexi leads,chain leads,or harnessess (unless a sled dog! Or medical reasons). Check chains may be used but only if used correctly, rememeber they are a training aid, not for permanent use.

TITBITS - are always a good idea, if not for your own dog, it will help you make friends with the other dogs.

TOYS - if toys are brought for retrieves, please ensure that you do not distract other dogs, please no balls, they roll everywhere.

YOU will only get out of your dog what YOU put in!
