Service Description

**Covid-19 and social distancing during training** Please leave your dog in the car until you are directed into the training field. No one is permitted in reception and there will be a barrier in place to avoid unnecessary contact with staff. A staff member will open the gate to the training field and direct you in with your dog. You will be training in allocated training lanes which adhere to the recommended social distancing guidelines. Due to the current situations classes have been tweaked to ensure that everyone and their dogs are kept as safe as possible. There will be no off lead work during class or off lead socialisation at the end of class until further notice. Why should I bring my dog to adolescent obedience? This course is perfect for your older adolescent pups that are too old for puppy training but still need to socialise with other dogs of a similar age. This is also the next class up from puppy class and it is important to reinforce their obedience training during their difficult hormonal period when all your previous training seems to have disappeared. Hormonal adolescents, just as with teenagers can be a handful. Their obedience seems to suffer, their recall can disappear and they can show signs of anxiety or aggression. This can be the most unsettling and most difficult stage of your dogs development and they will require constant reinforcement of their obedience throughout this stage. What can I expect with my dog from this class? We will show you various things your dog needs to know such as handler focus, stable obedience positions, a sit-stay, down-stay, recall with distractions, heelwork, approaches and socialisation. Any specific behaviour issues can also be dealt with during the class. What should I bring to class? Do not feed your dog at least 2 hours before doing any training. Please ensure you bring with you a motivational toy and/or high value soft treats that your puppy likes. Poo bags are also essential, however if you have forgotten bags or treats, you can buy them from our dog shop on site. How much does the class cost? You are responsible for your dogs behaviour at all times. Dogs can be unpredictable in their behaviour at times and although the risk is minimal that is the nature of a dog training and socialisation environment.
