Our group training sessions provide a fantastic environment in which to teach your puppy, your teenager, your rescue, or your adult dog the life-skills he or she needs thrive in the world we live in.
No matter what their age or background, our classes are designed to help dogs excel in a domestic and in a real-life outdoor environment and all that those environments throw at us and at them.
We teach using the most up-to-date 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, and to develop core strength, stability and confidence.
We have a range of techniques and activities to offer including Real Dog Yoga (canine calming techniques) puppy gym and ground work, Tellington TTouch, Scentwork, tricks and fun agility.
Equipment required for lessons
Please bring your dog on a flat collar and preferably a well-fitted 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.
Group Park lessons: What if it’s wet, snowy or what about covid?
Well, there is no need to worry. We can still continue to train your dog. If there is an ongoing problem with the weather or covid strikes again, we can jump online. It’s great to be able to offer online coaching too if training is going to be totally disrupted for a few weeks. It does actually have many advantages and compliments the face-to-face coaching perfectly.
So even though we will have loads of fun face to face in the park, 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.
