NOT ALL DOGS APPRECIATE THE CLASSROOM ENVIRONMENT.  MAYBE YOU ARE SHY AND DO NOT WANT TO BE IN A GROUP WHILE LEARNING HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DOG.

MOST TRAINING CLASSES THESE DAYS ARE OVERLOADED AND HAVE MIXED ABILITY CLASSES.

IF YOU DO WANT TO FIND A GOOD TRAINING CLASS, THEN PLEASE FOLLOW THESE TIPS:

  • A GOOD CLASS SHOULD NOT EXCEED 6-8 DOGS

  • NO MIXED ABILITY

  • FLOORS SHOULD NOT BE SLIPPERY

  • ASK TO SEE THE TRAINERS QUALIFICATIONS

  • ASK TO SEE THEIR FIRST AID CERTIFICATE

  • CHECK YOUR TRAINER IS 'FORCE FREE' AND USES POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT

  • AVOID TRAINERS USING PHRASES LIKE 'PACK LEADER,' 'HE'S BEING DOMINANT,' TOP DOG.' 

  • AVOID ALL TRAINERS WHO USE AVERSIVE METHODS AND EQUIPMENT SUCH AS HITTING YOUR DOG, YANKING LEAD, ALPHA ROLLS, PINNING DOGS DOWN, CHOKE COLLARS, PRONG COLLARS AND ELECTRIC SHOCK COLLARS.  THESE DO NOT WORK AND CAN HARM YOUR DOG BOTH PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY.

  • ASK YOUR TRAINER IF THEY REGULARLY REINFORCE THEIR KNOWLEDGE AND KEEP UP TO DATE WITH NEW SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN MODERN METHODS.

  • A GOOD TRAINER WILL DO MANY COURSES AND ATTEND WORKSHOPS- ASK TO SEE PROOF OF THIS

  • IF YOU WANT TO GO TO A KENNEL CLUB GOOD CITIZEN TRAINING CLASS, MAKE SURE A KC REGISTERED EXAMINER IS ARRANGED BY YOUR TRAINER TO TAKE YOUR EXAM AND THE TRAINER IS FOLLOWING THEIR CODE OF CONDUCT.

  • USE YOUR COMMON SENSE AND TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS.  WALK OUT IF YOU ARE UNHAPPY AND FIND SOMEONE YOU ARE HAPPY WITH

ON OFFER HERE IS A GREAT WAY TO TRAIN YOUR DOG IN EVERY DAY SCENARIO'S IN A NATURAL ENVIRONMENT TO WHICH THE DOG LIVES AND PLAYS.

USING ONLY FORCE FREE SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN MODERN METHODS, RESULTS ARE ACHIEVED THE RIGHT WAY- THE KIND WAY.

ONE HOUR A WEEK FOR SIX WEEKS

PUPPY, BRONZE, SILVER AND GOLD LEVELS 

121 SESSIONS ONLY

SOME PEOPLE WORRY THAT 121 CLASSES DO NOT ALLOW THE DOG TO SOCIALISE WITH OTHERS- THEY DO!

DOGS SOCIALISE NATURALLY WITH PASSING DOGS AND CAN PLAY NICELY WITH DOGS THAT ARE AROUND RATHER THAN BE FORCED IN A CLASSROOM ENVIRONMENT

HERE, WE MAKE LEARNING FUN FOR THE DOG AND TEACH YOU HOW TO TEACH YOUR DOG

HOMEWORK IS SET EACH WEEK AND HELPS BUILD THE FOUNDATIONS FOR YOU TO CARRY ON LONG AFTER THE COURSE FINISHES

PUPPY TIME

SOME TRAINERS OFFER PUPPY SOCIALISATION CLASSES OR WALKS.

THESE SHOULD CONSIST OF PUPPIES THAT ARE AROUND THE SAME AGE AND SIZE AND NOT EXCEED 5-6 DOGS AT ANY ONE TIME

CONDUCTED WRONG, THESE DO MORE HARM THAN GOOD AND CAN CREATE SERIOUS BEHAVIOUR PROBLEMS DOWN THE LINE
