Many dogs are quite excited on their first night because the experience is new to them. Therefore, we ask that you come to the first night without your dog as there is a lot of information that we need to pass on to you and you will be able to better absorb it when you are not distracted by your dog. .
Our first night information session usually takes about 1 hour. This includes a discussion about the theory of learning, equipment for dogs and handlers and an explanation of our foundation obedience exercises.
All training information and instruction is supported by a comprehensive Train at Home Guide included in the course fee.
Over the next six weeks we will concentrate on the following exercises:
Conditioning the dog's name
Charge the marker word ( yes!)
Parking and transport
Eye contact and attention
Sit and Down
Follow me - loose lead walking
Go to the mat
