If you are getting annoyed by your dog pulling you when you are on a walk, ignoring you when you call them to come back to you, then help is on it's way. The Club will be starting a new 10 week Basic Obedience course where we can help you to teach your dog not to pull on the lead and to come back to you immediately you call them as well as the 'usual' commands you need to have an obedient dog who you will be so proud to take out whether it's on a walk or on a family outing!! This 10 week Basic Obedience course will be starting on TBA at Arncott village hall, Arncott, near Bicester at 7:30pm. The cost is 80 per dog for the whole 10 week course.

This Club is listed with the Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme and as such all training is based on this scheme. At the end of the 10 weeks you can take a test if you want too and provided you pass, you and your dog will go home with a Kennel Club certificate as well as a lovely rosette!

I am able to help you to train your dog using online Zoom sessions for Obedience and Scent Work. With Zoom there is no need to wait for the next courses to start, Zoom means you are able to have one to one training sessions with me, tailored to suit you and your dogs needs. You don't need to wait until your puppy is fully inoculated and can socialise with other dogs as you train at home. We can start their training when ever we want too! So, those of you who have a new puppy, dogs who are beginning to develop bad habits or dogs who are unable to socialise with other dogs for one reason or another, you can start their training NOW in the comfort of your own home! 

I will be following the Kennel Club Good Citizen Scheme for all obedience training so that you will soon be on your way for a happy, obedience dog. There are several advantages to online training:

  •  You do not have to get in the car and drive to the venue so saving on your time and petrol. 
  • If your dog doesn't like other dogs, there won't be any for it to worry about and there will no other dogs to distract your dog during training 
  • if you have just got a new puppy you can start training before it is allowed to meet up with other dogs. 
  • As I do not have any overhead costs I am able to offer these course at a reduced price.

The way Zoom works is that once you have signed up to a course and provided you have either use of a computer, smart phone or tablet that has video and a microphone, I will send you an invitation with a link and password to attend the meeting. It is very much like our usual training sessions in that you and I can see, speak, and hear each other, so I can demonstrate various techniques to you and then watch you practicing with your dog and I am able to help when there is a need. These are one to one sessions at a date and time convenient to us both. You can try one Zoom session for 10 which would be for 30 minutes or a short 3 week course lasting for 45 minutes per session for 30.

Places do have to be pre-booked so please contact Jennie email ockcairns@yahoo.com for a Booking form. Payment is due before the course starts.
