This is a 6 week course and is for young dogs from the age of 5 months upwards (but is more focused on the stage that you dog is at (beginner) rather than how old your dog is.
The course will cover the following:
- Loose lead walking
- ‘Stay’ and ‘Leave’
- Correct socialisation
- Ignoring distractions and not jumping up
The course if not appropriate for reactive or aggressive dogs that show extreme reactions towards people or other dogs.
The 6 week course is held outside at our training school in Wilmslow. However any weeks where the weather is so bad that we can’t hold them outside, we let people know via the WhatsApp group that you will be added to before the course starts. We also use the WhatsApp group as a question and answer forum during your time on the course.
During the outdoor sessions, dogs must wear a collar and lead. We don’t recommend harnesses for teaching correct lead behaviour. However if you have a specific reason or health issue they may be brought on a harness. No extendable Leads are allowed. People will also be required to wear appropriate footwear (as it may be wet underfoot) and its strictly one handler per dog. Spectators must be at a distance whereby it doesn’t distract the dog. You need to bring toys and treats along with you. Refunds cannot be given within a week of the course. Dogs must not be booked in for neutering during the training course (we will advise people on the right timeframes for this during the course). Handlers must be over 16.
This course is £120 for a 6 week course taught by Rebecca Tortely.
