Do you feel your dog does not listen to you? Does your dog walk nicely to heel or pull you in to the bushes? Does your dog come back when called? What about when other dogs are around?
Life Skills Club is a great next step from Puppy Club to build some great foundation skills, or if you are picking up training with your older or rescue dog - Life Skills Club is currently running Saturdays 11am in St Just. Ideal for those of you who can't make a course over set weeks, you can book the dates that work for you.
Each week we will work on the core skills that we would all like to develop with our dogs - coming when called, walking with you, and manners, plus a big emphasis on fun settling and just being able to hang out with you. We include group and individual exercises and lots of mental activity:
- Loose lead walking and learning to ignore distractions
- Coming back when called from play
- Inspection - handling as per standard vet inspection
- Sit and down, staying in one spot
- Polite greetings with humans and dogs
The class is outdoors so as close to real life situations as we can. Groups will be small so that you can ask about particular challenges with your dog as we work through the exercises. There will always be a lot of commonality between issues, and your sharing of experiences is likely to help others in the group. You can continue in the group as long as you are getting something out of it and there is space, paying 5 weeks at a time.
NOTE NO CLASSES ON 9 JUNE, 21 JULY (LAFROWDA) AND 11 AUGUST 2018
If there are specific training issues you want to work through or you are starting from scratch with your dog, we suggest that you do this in a 1 to 1, and then you can bring those skills to the group setting, rather than your dog (and you) working on difficult new skills in a distracting group environment. If you come up through our puppy classes you will be fine to join straight in to this group. Otherwise we would always recommend a 1 to 1 before joining this group, but that is not essential if you already have some core skills with your dog. If your dog struggles around other dogs or people, please call before booking, you may just need a little help before joining the group. If you would like to book a 1 to 1 then please call Carolyn on 07815 167247.
The class is held outdoors so please wear appropriate clothing and footwear. Full details of what to bring with you will be supplied in your confirmation email once you have booked.
