FACE TO FACE GROUP TRAINING WILL RESUME AFTER 29TH MARCH WITH GROUP SIZES UP TO 6 INCLUDING THE TRAINER AS PERMITTED BYT GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES
The Puppy Foundation Manners Course is a 6 week course, suitable for all puppies up to around 18 weeks at the start of the course. In order to enable owners to get started with their training as early as possible, our Puppy Foundation Manners Course has the initial session as a series of online modules to introduce you to early training methods. The remaining 5 sessions are real time sessions and are run on a rolling programme so that owners can start as soon as they are ready rather than waiting for a new block to start.
There is a dedicated clients Facebook Group containing the information supporting the course. Week 1 is the online session consisting of several modules and various other resources to assist your learning together.
The 6 week programme is a great way to start developing your new puppy into a confident, well socialised member of your family and deals with all main common puppy issues including
- how puppies learn and why positive training works
- how to start teaching them to walk well on the lead
- toilet training
- bite prevention
- returning when called
- preventing jumping up
- learning to sit, stand, lie down and how to settle
- dropping and leaving items when asked
- understanding body language
- preventing separation anxiety
- developing confidence through learning
Real time sessions take place on Wednesday evenings (5.30 pm), Friday mornings (9.30 am) and on Sundays (9.30 am. We will train face to face outdoors but if the weather is exceptionally bad (very heavy rain, strong winds or below 0 degrees); and if government restrictions do not permit indoor training, the session will be held at the usual time via Zoom. Participants will be expected to wear face masks if they are able to. In order to comply with the 'rule of 6', only one handler will be permitted to attend per dog and there will be a limit of 5 puppies per class unless government restrictions are lifted.
A buldge class will be added on Saturday afternoon at 4pm am demand dictates.
