Evening Beginners Course:
We have a new beginners course starting every three weeks and each course lasts for six weeks. At the end of your course we would expect your dog to walk by your side without pulling, to sit, lie down and stay on command, to reliably come when called and be able to socialise easily with other dogs. However this can only be achieved by you practising with your dog every day at home. Homework sheets are provided to reinforce what you have been taught in class. We can also help with more specific problems like chewing, jumping up and not coming back. Individual problems can be discussed as part of the course and included in the course price of £75.00, as is a one-year membership to the Club and a new collar and lead.
Daytime Puppy Foundation Course:
We now run a four week daytime Puppy Foundation Course, strictly limited to puppies aged 8-14 weeks old at the start of the course. The purpose of this class is to help puppies and owner's form a real bond and introduce puppies to basic obedience and developing social skills as they settle into their new homes. Puppies need to have had their first inoculation before starting this course (please take your vet's advice about this). Most of these puppies go on to join our regular evening courses, having had a structured programme of training on the Puppy Foundation Course. The charge for this four week course is £60.00
All monies raised go to the Club and are used to pay the rent of the hall, buying of equipment and furthering the aims of the Club. We offer additional services including private training, behaviour modification for problem dogs, settling in new puppies, grooming and nail clipping. Please ask any Club instructor for more information.
We have facilities for one to one training and outdoor training, with agility, in fine weather.
Note: Places are allocated on a first come first served basis and courses, which we limit to eight dogs per course, often get booked up well in advance of their commencement date. On the first night of training you will need to bring your dog’s valid vaccination certificate with you.
