Dog Training

“I felt the training was set at an appropriate level and built steadily throughout the course.  Also, you adapted the training quickly if we were not getting it! which stopped any frustration in both dog and owner. A relationship developed through the course of trust, teamwork and fun which was lovely.” – Vikki, Thirsk

Excitable Adolescent!

*Sorry, not currently available*

Do you have an excitable, over-enthusiastic greeter? Are you tired of being dragged toward every dog in sight? Taught in small groups of 4 dogs, this course is about helping your dog learn to work with you even in the presence of other dogs.

Using a variety of play, reward and training techniques we will help your dog learn to watch other dogs calmly, focus on you when training and at play and greet each other politely. With friendly support and a small class, each dog and handler team will be able to work at their own pace without pressure or a need to ‘keep up with the Jones’s’. Come give it a try!
NOTE: This course is NOT for aggressive, highly reactive or fearful dogs. If you have these concerns, please contact Wendy at regarding a behaviour assessment
