PET DOG TRAINING CLASSES
PUPPIES | RESCUES | ADULTS
We currently work out of two training locations Waldegraves Holiday Park, Mersea Island and just off the Mersea Road in Abberton, near Colchester, Essex. Both locations are set outside in a field which allows for a different experience compared to indoor classes, with this in mind a lot of our training works well with distractions already in place so you are able to advance the training more effectively. The key to our training is that it is all fully force free, allowing the dogs to work things out for themselves to achieve the right result. This in turn means that the dog is truly learning the behaviour.
All our classes are for both puppies and mature dogs alike, each dog and owner will have their own challenges depending on how your pup is progressing so we ensure that we have no more than 8 dogs in a class at any one time thus allowing for individual help with the training so that you can progress at your own pace.
We are looking to ensure that confidence is increased week on week. In order to establish excellent training there is a need to realise that it will not be instant, and that dog training will need to be continued between classes, with this in mind we make the training classes as fun as possible and hope you continue to inject fun into training outside of class.
Each class will last for 45 minutes and will have no more than 8 dogs in a class.
