WE ARE NOW ABLE TO OFFER YOU A WEATHER PROOF AND COVID PROOF EXPERIENCE. IF THE WEATHER IS BAD WE WILL SEND YOU A LINK TO JUMP ON ZOOM.
Group training provides a fantastic environment in which to teach your dog the life-skills he or she needs to do well in the world we live in. Our classes are designed to help dogs excel in a domestic environment and we teach using the most up-to-date teaching methods backed up by current research and science. I believe that dog training is about coaching dogs and their family members to communicate with each other effectively and positively. This dialogue can begin from the moment you bring your puppy home at 8 weeks of age, and can be developed with dogs that perhaps haven't had the best start in life.
Lessons incorporate elements to give a holistic approach to training, We look at techniques to help to keep your dog fit, flexible and relaxed, developing core strength and stability and confidence and to give you techniques to help with lots of different behavioural aspects. Things such as dog yoga/calming postures, puppy gym and ground work, Tellington TTouch, scent work, tricks and fun agility are all incorporated throughout our courses.
Please bring your dog on a flat collar and preferably a well fitting Y (shape to the front) harness and a normal lead. No extendable leads please. Please bring lots of tasty treats too! Thank you. xx
Please keep your dog on a lead unless instructed otherwise.
SHOULD WE HAVE TO JUMP ON ZOOM:
We have had great fun running our virtual coaching. It has had so many advantages. Puppies, older dogs and rescues, more able to concentrate, owners more comfortable. The results were aparent on our eventual return to the park, with many of the puppies and dogs, more confident and focussed. I have been glad of the opportunity to embrace online coaching. So even though we will have loads of fun face to face in the park too, we have this option to expand what we can offer and to be able to offer more, and we will NEVER need to cancel a class.
You will be sent a link just like the one below:
Topic: Virtual Puppy School

Join Zoom Meeting
Meeting ID: 859 4522 5303
Click on the link and it will open Zoom up on your laptop, tablet or chosen screen. You will enter the waiting room of our virtual training location and as always, I will be there, ready to coach you through.
Set your screen up so that it is not directly in front of a window as that will make it difficult for me to see you and just check that it is positioned so I can see you and your dog and some space around you. If you would like some help setting this all up just let me know and I will jump on whatsapp or zoom and we can sort it out before Saturday for you so you are all ready to go.
Have your sound on mute. If you need to grab my attention wave at the camera and we can un-mute you so you can ask your question. Have your treats to hand as usual. Some in your treat pouch/or pocket and some in a container close by so that you can keep your "live" training treats topped up for repetitions. Set a bed up and a bowl of water for your puppy or your dog, and have space around you to work in.
