Why should I bring my dog to basic obedience? This course is perfect for older dogs that are too old for puppy training but still need to socialise with other dogs in a controlled but fun environment. This class is for mixed ages and it is important to reinforce your obedience training throughout their life which long term will be beneficial to not only you and you dog but others around you.
How old does my dog need to be? Your dog must be aged 6 months or older to be eligible for this class.
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.
When does the class run? The class runs on Monday at 9.30am, Wednesday at 1pm, Saturdays at 11am and Sundays at 11am. Each session lasts about 1 hour 15 minutes including the socialisation period after each lesson.
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. Please ensure you have completed our annual registration form found here before using any of the sites facilities.
How much does the class cost? Each class costs £12. Spectators are welcome as long as they do not interfere with the training. Children must be supervised by an appropriate adult at all times whilst on site. Toilets are available and free tea and coffee is provided at the end of the class whilst the dogs socialise. 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. Do not bring your dog to class if she is in season. Please read our full terms and conditions for further details.
