Puppy training course outline

​Below are all the skills you and your dog will learn during your time on our course-

  • Learn the basic theory behind positive reinforcement

  • Correct use of commands and marker words including tone of voice

  • How to read your dog’s body language

  • Talk and practical on puppy mouthing, toileting, chewing, boredom and more

  • Socialisation with other dogs, including coming away from dogs

  • Socialisation with other people, including greeting appropriately

  • Sit/down/stand/eye contact

  • Loose lead work and heelwork

  • Recall in a variety of different situations

  • Talk about the best way to leaving your puppy alone and settle work

  • General manners, around doorways, food and other scenarios

  • General tricks and fun games

  • Q+A during and after sessions

 

All of the above will be practiced inside and outside (where appropriate) in different real life scenarios.

During these sessions we will tutor you and your dog, however, it is necessary to practice this at home to get the best results. We are always conscious of what each owner wants to work on when they join our class and will do our best to cater for the needs of the whole class.

At the end of the course you will be able to take one of our follow up courses. If we feel the dog has progressed enough you can move up to the Dog training course where we will make it more challenging for the dog and owner. As an alternative if you are happy with your progression through the training course then you could always sign up for our canine freestyle/ tricks classes.
