|PUPPY FOUNDATION CLASSES for puppies that have received their first inoculation and are younger than eighteen weeks old. Older pups are welcome in the Bronze Course.
This course is for socialising and interacting in a safe environment with good-tempered canines. Pups need to read and understand canine behaviour, which will help them to become well-adjusted dogs themselves, able to mix and behave well in company. We focus on positive, force-free methods of learning, using the 'click and treat' concept for basic positions (sit, down,stand), non-corrected walking to heel and immediate recall training with distractions = the most difficult for the new trainer to master.
In addition, acceptance of examination, teeth check, foot inspection, grooming and general care are covered to help you through the challenging early stages of dog ownership in the family home.
Classes begin at Chardstock CH at 3.50pm on Tuesday afternoons. Spaces are limited. Please enquire.
PLEASE BOOK TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT - NUMBERS ARE LIMITED TO FOUR PER CLASS.
PAY £8 ON ARRIVAL AT EACH SESSION
I can also offer a SETTLING IN evaluation for your new puppy or rescue dog in your own home. £30 per hour plus travel for a private appointment to discuss areas that may be of concern to you in the home, garden and car. Being prepared for your new arrival can ease the stress for you and your pet.
You may be invited to start your training in the Puppy Foundation group and move into the Bronze Obedience class partway through the course, subject to availability and depending on your pup's age and developmental rate.
