Group classes are the classic way of training dogs and puppies, and for good reason! Training a dog - whether young or old - is not an easy thing, and nothing beats the solidarity and support that come with learning in a group.
We take a calm, confident approach to training, using positive reinforcement and techniques rooted in animal behavioural science and psychology.
What to expect
Dog or puppy training is a learning experience for pet and pet owner alike. In our classes, we’ll work with you to teach your dog the key skills that will form the foundation of their behaviour and discipline. We teach and practice a new skill every class, as well as practicing everything we’ve learned previously to consolidate your (and your pup’s) learning, and we’ll leave you with an information sheet to refer to as you practice your dog’s new skills between classes.
Classes follow a loose structure, so you and your pup will always know what to expect, but there’s also enough flexibility for you to ask questions or spend some time focusing on something you’re struggling with.
We keep classes small (6-8 dogs per class) so that each dog gets enough attention from the trainer, there’s plenty of time for questions, and they can be tailored to your particular needs or the areas you want to focus on. Puppy and dog classes follow a similar structure, with the main difference being the age of the canine participants!
In our puppy classes, we also provide you with key information on owning a puppy, such as how to deal with issues like chewing and mouthing. And every class finishes with a play session, giving your puppy a chance to run around off-lead and socialise with their classmates in a controlled environment.
Puppy training courses are 6 weeks long with one 1-hour class each week. Classes are held inside. £60 for the course.
Dog training classes are held outside and run for half an hour once a week. £8 per class.
