Puppy Courses

We offer courses of six one-hour sessions. The theory teaching will help you understand your puppy’s behaviour, increase patience and calmness, consider how dogs learn etc. We teach the basics in a practical way: such as sit, stay, recall, retrieve and loose lead walking. The training is based on positive reinforcement operant conditioning methods. There are opportunities for supervised play with other puppies.

Improver Courses for all dogs - Foundation or Obedience

We provide courses of six group sessions or one-off sessions to give you a great foundation for a happy dog-human relationship, and also improve your dogs' skills if you have already done a puppy class. We reinforce and enhance the training you may already have done: for example; sit, stay, recall, leave, retrieve and nice lead walking. There is question and answer time for you to help work out the best way to encourage the particular behaviours you want from your dog. 

We also run private bespoke 90 minute sessions for your dog and up to two friends and their dogs, either as a one-off or a course of three sessions. Time and venue to suit you. This can include agility training.

Agility Courses

We run six week group Beginners or Improvers dog agility classes which include useful "flatwork" training as well as getting used to the basic equipment.  Skills are taught at a gentle pace so that your dog does not feel pressurized or over-stimulated. Dogs are welcome to sign up if they are sociable with other dogs and humans. Once they have completed our Beginners course, they can join the Improver agility course.

Other Training

We run one-off two hour group training sessions if you don't want to sign up for a whole six week course.  Each session covers an area of dog training, such as Recall, Nice Lead Walking, Reading your dog's body language, Trick Training & Clicker training.  We have a maximum of five dogs in the group so the instructor has time to give each owner specific advice for their dog.  These sessions are suitable for all dogs over the age of five months old.

We provide courses and training for owners and dogs who would like to achieve IMDT Partnership Grades (including Recall from play, Cone Search, Tricks, heel work etc).  The focus is on correct and sympathetic handling as much as on the dog achieving the designated exercises.  

We also run practical tracking and scentwork sessions. Get your lively easily-distracted dog to tune in to you. Learn about the amazing dog's sense of smell and how they use their nose.  Learn how different conditions affect tracking and scentwork.  Expert training to get your dog sniffing and searching, progressing from easy and motivating, to more challenging.
