Puppy Socialisation: Not taking any further puppies for the time being but can still do training using Zoom.
Basic Obedience: Not taking any further classes for the time being but can still do training using Zoom.
Throughout the lockdown periods, I ran zoom dog training sessions which worked very well. These are one to one sessions and have the advantages: of being able to start to train your puppy before it is allowed to socialise with other dogs, you don't have to out in the cold and wet so saving petrol, each session is done at a date and time to suit us both. If you would like to join a zoom session these are one to one sessions and can either be a single session for 30 minutes costing £10 or 3 weekly sessions of 45 minutes each session costing £30.
If you are unlucky enough to have missed out on a place on any of the obedience training courses, I am still be 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 obedience training so that you will be on your way for a happy, obedience dog. There are several advantages to online training:
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 and and 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 email@example.com for a Booking form. Payment is due before the course starts.
Is your dog 6 months or older and is a ' Pain ' to walk?
Does it come back when called?
Does it ignore you when off lead?
If the answer to any of these questions is YES then the new 8 week Basic Obedience course will be just what you need!
All training is based on The Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme and only uses kind positive methods of training.

The Puppy Foundation Assessment class. This is for puppies from as soon as they can socialise with other dogs to those aged less than 5 months. We help you to teach your puppy to come when called, socialise with other dogs and people, sit, stand and down positions, walk on a loose lead and basic stay command. There are no tests in this course and at the end of the course and provided the Trainer is sure that your dog has reached the appropriate standard laid down by the Kennel Club, your dog will get a Kennel Club Good Citizen certificate and a rosette.
The Basic Obedience class is for dogs over 5 months of age. In this class we teach basic obedience, how to sit, stand, go down, stay, walk on a loose lead, etc. At the end of the course, dogs are tested by an approved Kennel Club Judge for the Kennel Club Good Citizen Bronze Award. Your dog does not have to have been on the puppy course to start in this one. Your dog needs to have completed this course before it can start in the Intermediate Course.
The Intermediate/Advanced class for those dogs who have all ready passed the Kennel Club Bronze or Silver Award. In this class we build up on that learnt in the Bronze class. They learn to walk off lead by your side, do a 2 minute down or sit stay with 30 seconds out of sight of the handler (for the Advanced dogs), how to retrieve an article, distance control, send away (go to bed), etc. At the end of the course, dogs are tested for either the Silver or Gold Kennel Club Good Citizen Award.
