Classes and Workshops

Classes

All group classes are small (4-6 dogs) with emphasis on the individual dog/handler teams.  Attention is paid to each individual starting from the time of registration where each dog is assessed prior to entry into class. Bronze, Silver and Gold training courses have been expertly designed to provide successful and logical progressions in a solid training foundation of learning and fun. Emphasis is on the canine/human bond and relationship building through motivational exercises and training games. Clicker training is a highly successful method of reward –based training that not only trains dogs, but teaches them to think and problem solve, developing wonderful confidence and a love of learning.  Bronze Silver and Gold courses develop canine manners; build great thinking skills and incredible dog sport foundation building to bring out the best in your canine companion! Help and advice available throughout the week via email and phone support!
