The Domestic 1 Class is for dogs over 6 months and Puppy Classes are for dogs between the ages of 4 and 7 months. our volunteer instructors teach YOU how to train your dog. The classes include loose lead walking, stays, coming when called, and very importantly socialisation with other dogs. All of these areas are covered in the first 8 week course.
Level 2: Domestic 2 and Puppy 2 Classes
After the first course is completed, you graduate to the next level of domestic/puppy obedience. This phase of training is to reinforce all that you have learnt and to extend each exercise further. To have a dog that is well behaved and well socialised we recommend that you complete Level 2.
Level 3: Upwards Further Obedience Training and/or Agility, Flygility, Rally-O
Obedience training at a higher level is taught in conjunction with content designed around continuing to train your dog to be a well-mannered household pet. It progresses at a pace to suit the capabilities of handler and dog. Handlers wishing to compete are encouraged and receive more specialised training.
Agility Training requires a level of obedience as most of the training is done off lead. Agility is something that most dogs love to do. The 9 week beginner course is designed to introduce the dog to all the agility equipment. From there you move onto the intermediate level where the emphasis is on improving control and speed.
