PLEASE NOTE: If your dog has issues such as aggression / fear / anxious in group situations... it is likely that you will be offered private training before you start into the manners classes. Any dog who comes to class and is excessively disruptive to the class will also be offered private training classes to manage/resolve those issues before they can return to a class situation.
This class will cover a variety of training to give you and your dog the skills to enjoy outings and new environments.
Basic training including, loose lead and heel work, sit, down, recall, stay, off, retrieve, play and settle and working with age appropriate distractions nearby.
We also address specific behaviours ie. pulling on lead, jumping up, barking, nipping, over excitement, anxiety and fear.
We will use some basic agility gear to make the exercises more fun for the puppies, ie recall through a tunnel.
Stock training. From time to time there will be animals available to us to train the dog around and teach them to focus and not chase.
Play and trick training, having fun with your pup.
Training aids and methods of controlling and redirecting undesired behaviours.
Understanding the dogs needs, learning capacity, body language and favourite rewards. Building a stronger bond with the dog through understanding their body language and knowing your dog well in varying situations.
Dealing with on and off lead issues such as altercations, fearfulness, anxiety, over active play, reactiveness, and even laziness.
Meeting people in a polite manner, walking beside the owner in a calm manner.
Learning to keep your dogs attention and focus and be able to keep your own focus on what your dog is doing and saying.
Basic beginnings of scent work or nose work
Rally O exercises, great for loose lead work and training heel work without realising you are even doing it! LOTS of fun!!!
Free Run Play (for those dogs who are safe to do so and those handlers who are happy for their dogs to do so)
Some other learning opportunities are bound to come up within the course of each class as different situations arise with the dogs we have on each particular day.
Dependant upon the class participants we may take some classes to other venues such as the redwoods, Hannahs Bay, or local shopping centre to include some daily walk type settings and what training can be included when out and about.
