How much: £10.00 per session, paid two months in advance.
Why: Teaching your dog obedience and tricks is a fun way to improve their overall obedience as well improving their strength and coordination which is important for body well being but also a great foundation for dog sports such as agility. A well trained dog is not only a pleasure to be around but is also safer for the public and for your dog themselves.
All basic training is covered, using kind, consistent, reward-based techniques (including clicker training). Classes are kept small (max 8) and are taught by a qualified behaviourist with 12 years’ experience. You can check out pictures from this course here.
