About our Training Club
Our goal is to teach you to train your dog to be the loyal and trustworthy companion you want. As everyone's needs are different, we style our training accordingly.
About our classes:
Puppy Socialisation Class
This course is designed especially for puppies under
18 weeks old. It provides an excellent opportunity to combine
socialisation, play and training. At this age puppies are easiest to
train for good manners if this training is gentle and fun. We encourage
all the family to attend with the puppy. Topics include:
SOCIALISATION - it is essential for the young GSD to mix with other dogs, children and adults.
HANDLING - Getting the puppy to enjoy being groomed, touched and handled.
TRAINING - By using gentle reward based methods, we teach the basics of coming when called, sit, lie down and walk on a loose lead.
Puppy follow on course
In these classes the dog is taught to come, sit, down, stand, stay, fetch a toy and walk on a loose lead. Proofing against continually more difficult distractions, each lesson builds on previous lessons.
Intermediate / Advanced
In these classes a dog is taught a higher level of obedience. Advanced level includes retrieve, send away, scent and recall. More proofing against distractions off the lead.
B.H. is an Internationally recognised training test. The B.H. is a companion dog test which includes advanced obedience with a practical test in traffic conditions which are designed to test the temperament and trainability of the dog. Training for this is held outside.
