One-to-One and Puppy Pre-Training Classes  
One to One Classes 
 One to one training can be arranged for owners who feel they or their dogs need a little more individual attention.

This can be for a variety of reasons:

  • A specific problem that needs intensive training such as walking on a loose lead or jumping up.
  • Your dog may be easily distracted or get over excited in the company of other dogs making  concentration difficult in a group class situation.

Classes are by arrangement so you can progress at your own speed. 

 Contact us to discuss your requirements or to book a class 01772 614715.


 Puppy Pre-Training Class 

 The Puppy Pre-Training Class is a one to one class specifically designed for owners who want to get off to the best start with their new puppy. 

Having a new puppy in your life is an exciting experience but as puppies learn at a very fast rate it is essential that they learn positive lessons as early as possible. Prevention is always better than cure so early advice is important and gives reassurance that you are doing the right thing and helps to avoid future correctional training which will be confusing for your puppy.

A Puppy Pre-Training session is an ideal introduction to our Good Citizen Puppy Foundation Classes and will enable you to start your training whilst waiting for a course to commence.
