Why Should I train my dog?

Hello and welcome to Four Paws Dog Training..

If you’re reading this, are you thinking of getting a new puppy?

Or do you have a puppy between the ages of 12-21 weeks  old.? 

 If the answer to either of these questions is “ Yes”, then why not come and join us?.

We run a 5 week Puppy Foundation Course for puppies from 12 to 21 weeks old.

We also now run a Junior course from time to time when those that have attended a Puppy Foundation Course wish to further their dogs training. This course is 4 weeks long and costs £50.

If you are interested in joining this course and wish to go onto the waiting list then call Kathryn on 01257 450432 for further details and dates of future courses.

The  Junior course will be held on a Thursday evening from 7.30pm to 8.30pm.

For all details of what you will learn on our courses, then please take a look at our “Courses” page.

The classes are structured so you will learn something new every week, and by the end of the course you should have a dog that is able to do the basic commands and more…..

For all enquiries call Kathryn on 01257 450432.- 07398 282898. 

But why should I train  my dog?….When you train your dog it is the beginning of a relationship. You communicate with other members of your family so why not your dog?. This is where training comes in.

How long will the training take.?…..Training is an on-going process  as all dogs learn at different speeds therefore there is no set time limit. If you attend the puppy foundation course, and practice at home, then you should see a marked improvement.

At Four Paws we train only with positive and reward based training methods , when we are teaching your dog to do a “Sit” we reward him/her for doing the Sit. As time goes by and your dog begins to know the commands you give them, then you will start to wean off the treats, but you must ALWAYS praise your dog.

Dogs are creatures of habit and if they have a good experience with something, then they are likely to repeat the behaviour…before you know it, your dog is sitting, staying, not jumping up, and leaving those things they shouldn’t be touching ,like your socks, slippers ,TV remote control, or your mobile phone! .

If you would like to enrol onto the Puppy Foundation Course , then call today, and I look forward to meeting you.

Please call me if you wish to know the dates of the Junior course, or if you want to go onto the waiting list.

You can always keep updated with how our classes are going by reading our “News” page on this website, or by visiting us on our Facebook page.


If you are unable to attend a training course then we also do 1-2-1 Home Training.

All details can be found on the “Courses” page.
