Learn to understand your dogs body language and a lot of issues you might have with your dog/puppy could disappear. The most common problem between dog and owner is that the dog is misunderstood, because the owner doesn't know how to interpret his dog. We will look through pictures of dogs, while discussing what the dogs are saying with their ears, eyes, mouths, tails, paws, tongues, body stance, etc. You can ask questions about dog behaviour, throughout your lesson. The lesson will last 1-1,5 hours (depends on the amount of questions!) and is £6/person.
You will learn the principles of First Aid, First Aid kit, Aloe Vera, visiting the vet, wounds - cuts and bites, poisoning - chocolate, slug bait, warfarin, grass seeds, stings, gastric torsion / dilation, foreign bodies, worms, ticks and fleas, teeth and teething, travelling with your pet, how to bandage your dogs leg, claw cutting The lesson will be held by a veterinary nurse. You can find out more on the First Aid page.

In the clicker classes you will be shown how to use a clicker and we will go through a few basic exercises like eye contact (focus), touch, down, close, go to bed (sending the dog to a chosen spot). We also go through a few tricks, such as back, slalom through legs, look left and right and we are happy showing you how to start a trick of your own choosing.
You will be shown the basics of teaching your dog to search and retrieve, one of the best ways to mentally stimulate your dog!
If you want to concentrate on working on your dogs lead skills, behaviour around traffic, going through gates, teaching your dog to walk behind on narrow paths, etc, this is the lesson for you.
This lesson can be taken by dogs that have issues with other dogs or people (since the whole lesson is done with the dogs on lead), but you and your dog will have to be assessed first, so I know you can actually physically hold your dog in the presence of other dogs/people.
In spring 2016 we will start up agility classes again! Book your space now, as we expect to get full classes. Max 5 dogs per class. All novice dogs will be given an introduction lesson first. Your dog will need to know stay, recall and be off lead around other dogs without running to them.
