The Perfect Puppy Course
The Clicker Foundation Course.
For adult dogs of all breeds and all ages
The pre-course process begins with an invitation to observe a class (without your dog) to ensure that you are completely happy with the service which we provide.
A preliminary Training session with just one or two other dogs will then be arranged prior to joining a course with a maximum of 6 dogs in each class.
The course provides strategies to help you resolve the following;
Pulling on the lead
Excitable or boisterous behaviour
Lack of recall response, otherwise known as 'selective deafness!'
Impulse Control with food and toys
The course is structured, so regular weekly attendance is important, and you will be required to train your dog at home between classes.
If your dog has aggressive tendencies towards either dogs or people, a training class will NOT be suitable. Please contact us for other options.

For all breeds great and small, our non-competitive agility training is great fun for dog and owner and a great way of keeping fit! It also requires a great deal of control.
Your dog will need to attain a high level of obedience on and off lead before joining an agility class.
It is impossible to define exactly how many weeks obedience training will be required before your dog will be allowed to join a class, because all dogs (and owners!) progress at different rates, but it would be expected that a minimum of 16 weeks obedience training would be required.
Acceptance in agility classes is discretionary, and dogs may be required to take part in 'refresher' obedience classes from time to time to maintain the level of control needed.
Dogs must be over 12 months of age (18 months for larger breeds) and in good health.
