PET DOG TRAINING

Classes begin on Tuesday nights at 6.30 pm with the Puppy/Newcomers Course - based on the Kennel Club Puppy Foundation Course outlines - and instructed by Elsie Deacon and Judy Weight . At 7.30 pm Elsie holds her regular "ongoing" pet training class for those who have progressed on from the Puppy and Improvers courses.   At 8.15 pm, we have the Improvers Course (runs every 8 weeks), which is instructed by Jacque Kelly and Judy Weight, with Jenny Harknett, KCAI, being the course adviser. Then at 9.00 pm, Jenny takes the "Introduction to Competitive Obedience" class for those wishing to take their training to a higher level so that they can start competing at obedience shows.

This course carries on from the Newcomers Course, covering all the basic training exercises you will need to do with your pet dog, including sit and down, come when called, walking on the lead, stay exercises, basic retrieve and many other elements of behaviour-related training to help your dog to grow into a well-mannered and socially well-adjusted family pet.   The sessions also include some fun exercises to assist your young dog with body awareness skills and to build confidence in new experiences, such as step-throughs, tunnels, spins and party tricks!
