The Beginners class caters for dogs who are 5 months and older and who have had very little or no training at all, nor been properly socialised.
We ‘start from scratch’ with basic obedience training and you’ll be introduced to the clicker.
Your dog will be exposed to fun stuff like jumping over hurdles and going through loops, walking through water, ball ponds and more – this will teach him how to solve difficult situations and designed to boost your dog’s confidence.
We show you how to manage a dog who reacts to noises, specific people and basically anything upsetting (ie: possibly anything he was not exposed to as a puppy).
Your dog will be exposed to different sounds, sights and situations.
You’ll learn about frustration tolerance, resource guarding, separation related problems and lots more.
Common problems like jumping up, digging and chewing will be discussed.
For extensive behaviour problems, you can speak to our resident behaviourist about a home visit.
All dogs will be assessed for reactivity before being allowed to interact with other dogs.
The course is designed for puppies from 5 months of age. Sooner rather than later is our recommendation to avoid the establishment of bad habits.
We teach using positive reinforcement methods (lure and reward).
No punishment or forced training is tolerated.
