This course is suitable for all dogs from 6 months to 1 yrs.
This is a “Follow on” course for dogs that have completed and attended a Puppy Foundation Course, or had a Home Training session, and their owners now wish to further their dog’s training.
On this course you will be revising some of the commands that were previously taught on the Puppy Foundation Course or Home training session, and also learn some new ones.
This course is a structured 5-week course, so you will be learning something new every week. All training in class is with positive & reward methods.
If you have a female that comes into season during the course then unfortunately you wont be able to attend class whilst your dog is in season. You can, if you wish, still come and join us, and then practice the commands at home, or join us on a later course, for the weeks that you missed.
On fine evenings we hold some of the classes outside on the field behind the hall, so please wear suitable clothing and footwear.
The Commands on this course are:
- “Watch me”, around other people and dogs.
- Sit, Down,Stand and Finish.
- Distance control.
- To Sit/ Down/Stay for 1 minute.
- The difference between Stay & Wait.
- Emergency Stop.
- Control at Doorways/Gate.
- Recall to the Whistle. (For those that wish to learn this.)

The commands learnt in the course are also combined into exercises & games. We teach all commands in a friendly manner, with treats and praise, no harsh methods are used at any time when we are helping you to train your dog. Our aim is to make training enjoyable for both you and you dog.
A Junior course itinery ,will be given to you at the start of this course, and a “Junior Certificate of Completion”, & Rosette will be awarded to those who attend and complete the course.
This course is for dogs with sound temperament .If your dog barks at other dogs, or is not comfortable with other dogs around them, then our classes may make your dog stressed, and you may be more suited to a 1-2-1- Home Training session, where your dog can be trained in more familiar surroundings.
We tailor our classes to suit the needs of all attendees. Therefore, this course and its contents may differ slightly, this is to make sure we give you what you want from the class.
Class numbers are restricted as this enables the trainer to provide a more personal level of training.
