Adult Beginners Class

Adult Beginners classes are for dogs who are over 5 months old at the beginning of the course.  We teach through fun exercises and training games, and use motivational, reinforcing methods.  Each week there are brand new skills to learn as well as building on the reliability of exercises from past weeks.  We have loads of fun, and you can expect to learn the following when you attend the course.

  • Eye Contact/Focus

  • Hand Touch

  • Sit – Down – Stand

  • Stay

  • Peak-a-boo

  • Paws-Up


Certificates are awarded on completion of the course, additional ‘Awesome Award’ Rosettes are presented for special achievement!

Each week there is time for questions, on any aspect of dog training or behaviour!

The course runs for 6 weeks with each session being 55 minutes. There is a maximum of 8 dogs per class. Cost £95
