Why Should You Choose Four Paws Dog Training?

Below are details of our Puppy Foundation & Socialisation Course, Beginners and Junior Courses.

All the training at Four Paws is reward based training, no harsh methods at any time are used, and if your dog takes that little longer to pick up commands, then so be it.

All dogs are different and at Four Paws we recognise this, so we take things slowly.

Our classes are small, no more than 6 in a class, as this enables the trainer to give you a more personal level of training. Early booking is advised.

We also do 121 Home Training sessions for those of you who are unable to attend a weekly class.

1 hr session is £35.

For further 121 Home Training sessions call Kathryn on 01257 450432 mob 07398 282898, or email Kathryn@fourpwasdogtraining.co.uk

Puppy Course.

This is a popular course so early booking is advised.

 

This Puppy Foundation & Socialisation Course, is for puppies from the age of  12 weeks to 20 weeks old. 

On this course we teach you  how  to train your puppy  the  basic requirements for good manners, and  all  training in class  is  with positive & reward based methods, as the course progresses we teach you how to “wean” off food treats and show you how to still “reward” your dog with toys, and praise, so training is still fun. 

We also teach you how to socialise your puppy correctly, so your puppy grows into a confident dog.

This is a structured 6 week course so you will learn something new every week. We teach your puppy important life skills that are required for them to be a well mannered, member of your family. 

Everything you learn in class will  be relevant to your every day life, we teach your puppy to focus on you, whilst there are distractions around them, to sit and stay, so you can happily open doors and know your puppy will not run out, to leave items, to drop items that they have pinched, and much more.

The commands you learn on this course, are also put into exercises, so you can see how they will fit into your daily life.

At the start of each new class, we always revise the commands you learnt the previous week, just to see how you are doing, and if you are having any problems. Our aim is to make training enjoyable for both you and your dog.

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 a class situation may make your dog stressed, and you may be more suited to 1-2-1- Home Training session, where your dog can be trained in more familiar surroundings.
