The Basic Obedience PAYG (Pay As You Go) lessons are available for dogs of all ages and types, puppies to adults and rescue dogs.
If you have a puppy, you bring it to the Basic Obedience PAYG lessons for your training and socialising needs. I organise the dogs in groups according to their age, size and confidence levels, so that we can let them off for some play during the lessons. Socialising is an important part of training your dog.
Your dog will have to be friendly with other dogs and people to be able to join any of the group lessons. If your dog has behaviour issues, such as fighting with other dogs, or fear aggression towards humans or dogs, you should consider private training instead. Unfortunately I don't offer this service at the moment.
The same thing applies for dogs that are extremely nervous or dogs that get so excited around other dogs that they won't take any rewards (treats, toys, praise, etc) or just bark or scream their way through class.
