Obedience Classes

We are currently running obedience classes here on a Thursday evening. All dogs must be fully vaccinated.

Class times are as follows:

 

6pm           Puppy classes for pups of 8 weeks to 6 months

6.45pm      Puppy classes for young dogs of 6+ months – 1 year  (ideal for the slightly older / larger pup)

7.30pm      Regular Obedience Class

8.15pm      Obedience class for those more experienced

 

I would not say that we run “normal” obedience classes as we try and make our classes fun, informative and “different”. In the puppy classes we teach you how to use and the benefit of clicker training. All classes do the regular walking on lead (heelwork) , sit, stays, recalls, fetch, etc but we also have people riding around the arena whilst dogs are doing their “stays” on bikes and pushing prams. We also play games like musical mats, canine charades and show you how to teach your dogs some basic tricks like turning left and right, rolling over, bowing etc. Along with all this we also have a small obstacle course to encourage the dogs to think about how they use their limbs – which all the dogs love doing.

If you are interested in our obedience classes you are welcome to come and view on a Thursday evening but please phone us on either 01227 281827 or 07920 047486 to make sure training is going ahead on the day you want to come, as there are a few dates in the year that we cancel due to bank holiday weeks or because we are taking our son to major agility shows.
