Who should come to training?
Every dog can benefit from training be that to live a stress free life or to have a bit of fun! We encourage everyone who is involved in walking, playing or lounging around with your dog get involved in the training. Children are always keen to get involved – by teaching them how to communicate with their dog, you'll find less mishaps occurring along the way. Dogs need a consistent style, tone and body language to follow, especially in the early days, so all the family should learn the rules too.
Dog training is not a 'one size fits all' solution, every dog is different and so are the owners – both in their particular needs and the kind of activities they enjoy. Contact us to find out what training might suit you and your dog either by calling 01594 840322 or by emailing us making sure you mention the Dog Training Club.
