Bronze, Silver and Gold Good Citizen Training Classes

Obedience  Dog Training Classes

Wednesday Bronze/Silver  Good citizen class 7.30pm – 8.15pm – Some spaces starting September 5th

Thursday 7.30pm Silver /Gold Good citizen Full

 I like to combine puppies with older dogs after the initial puppy course as the majority of dogs they will meet out and about will be adult dogs. I also feel it isn’t beneficial for puppies to go through the whole of their training with the same group of puppies. Dogs can become comfortable with their class mates and this can cause problems when they encounter a new dog  or when a new dog joins a class.

In this class we aim to build upon and reinforce the dog training basics that you have learnt in the previous class.

We work towards the Good citizen Bronze award alongside The APDT Companion awards

The Bronze/Silver  Good Citizen  dog training class syllabus covers the beginnings of:

Stays

Recall

Come away from distractions

Loose lead walking

Gate control

Vet checks, handling, grooming

Thursday Silver / Gold Good Citizen class 7.30-8.15

In this class we cover a variety of dog training exercises and this class is aimed at the pet owner who wants to continue their training to further develop their relationship and communication with their canine companion. However this class can also be a stepping stone for those who wish to venture into the competitive dog sports world.  Here are some of the training exercises  we cover in this class:

Stays – out of sight

Walking beside us off lead

Novice Recall

Sendaways

Distance Control

Scent discrimination

Fun Flyball

Tricks

Jumping

Obstacle courses
