Dog Academy:
Beginner

creating model canine citizens

This class is designed to help dogs on their way to becoming good canine citizens and also aims to teach dog handlers how to help their dog live a life filled with fun and adventure.

 

What?

Throughout the 8 week course, you and your dog will learn the beginner skills needed for a happy life together, including:

  • Loose-lead walking;

  • Recall away from distractions;

  • Control at doors, gates, and in the boot;

  • Settling around distractions;

  • Sit and down stays;

  • Putting on collars, leads, and harnesses in a calm and controlled manner;

  • Fun tricks, such as play dead and the perfect paws up pose;

  • Handling and grooming skills, to include basic physical examinations and administering tablets;

  • Enrichment methods for keeping your dog happy throughout the day;

  • Essential owner knowledge, including dog law, theft safety, equipment, nutrition and health and wellbeing.

 

As with all our classes, you will be welcomed into our online learning group where you will access training videos, handouts,  and everything you need to pass the assessment in Week 8. You can find out more about the assessment here.

 

Why?

We believe that dogs have better lives when their handlers feel they can trust them in a variety of scenarios. For example, dogs who have an excellent recall get to go off-lead more frequently and dogs who are a joy to walk on lead are more likely to go on family holidays. What’s more, we want to empower dog owners to give their canine family members a gold standard of care.

 

Who?

You are welcome to book onto this class if you have completed our Puppy Academy: Foundations course, or if you have a dog over 6 months of age who needs foundation training, such as rescue dogs of any age. If your dog is reactive to people or dogs, please contact us before booking to ensure we can accommodate your dog’s needs.

Classes are all held at a purpose-built dog training facility in Kingston Seymour, BS21 6UY.
