This class is designed for very young puppies between 10 and 20 weeks of age. This is a very important time in a puppy’s development and generally speaking experiences at this age, both good and bad, will stay with them for life. This class will help give them the best start possible.
This class is suitable for all dogs, 5 months of age and older, whether they have just completed puppy classes, are an adolescent that is being introduced to basic obedience or are a rescued dog of any age. Older dogs have also done well in this class.
Intermediate obedience for dogs that have completed Family Dog Manners or an equivalent basic obedience course. You will continue to build on the skills that you have already learnt as well as learning new ones. It is not a formal obedience class but rather taught in a manner that is fun but challenging for you and your dog.
Sometimes more individual help is needed for your dog. They may have difficulty focusing in close proximity with other dogs or have a specific behaviour problem that is best resolved one on one. If you wish to learn effective techniques in a more private setting, this may be the best choice for you and your dog.
My new rescue dog and I attended "Family Manners" classes. Although I had had a great relationship with my previous dog, I felt classes were needed for Birdie and for me as time had passed and training methods had changed. The classes were positive, worthwhile and a fun experience for both of us, especially as I feel so empowered. Thanks Jane
