Please note this course has a break on the 29th of October but we will be training on Bonfire night, (with lots of distracting music to reduce stress on the pups) The puppy training course covers a wide range of skills in a supportive and comfortable indoor location. • Correct socialisation with dogs and people • Food manners • Grooming • Safe play • Walking on a lead • Not jumping up • Sit, down and stand • Puppy Recall • Learning to wait • Being handled by people • Training for the vets. • Basic canine first aid - clinical readings • Chewing & biting control • Leaving objects • Controlling barking • How to use rewards effectively • How to use praise effectively The course also incorporates the Kennel Club Puppy Foundation Course. We give you the skills to teach your dog, every day in every location, without force and discomfort. Building a bond between you and your dog. If you only ever do one course with your puppy this is the one to do, it will teach you the skills to train your dog for life. . We ask that you bring the following with you every week: • Lots of treats - but we do have treats for sale from £1 a bag. • A favourite toy. • dog poo bags • Grooming equipment • Collar and lead. We prefer to train on either flat collars, half check collars or front fastening harnesses. (which we may check is fitted correctly) or we may recommend a head collar (in the short term) and a normal lead of about 3ft. Rear only fastening harnesses (unless medically needed) are not recommended for training and extendable leads & full choke chains are not allowed. We have all of the above for sale at the class and can fit a collar and lead during the first session if you wish. We ask that everyone wears sensible footwear while training for the safety of dogs and humans. Please also read our COVID 19 instructions and our full terms and conditions before booking.
