Beginner Foundation Course

The beginner foundation course is a 6 week course of 'one hour and a half' lessons. Fully payable in advance. You will also receive a training booklet to take home.

This is for dogs over 6 months old at the start of training.

My training is based on a series of successive exercises and I believe that you can start training at any age and this will teach your dog how to learn and builds positive habits in the dog and handler.

The intention of the beginner courses is to get the dog used to being handled and groomed, so when they visit the vet or grooming parlours they are not so scared.

They will be socialised with other people and dogs in different situations.

A dogs life may depend on a solid recall, so this is a very important exercise to teach.

We will also teach you how to play with your dog, as play will help build a solid relationship between you and your dog, it is a great confidence builder in dogs that are perhaps a little shy or unsure.

We will also teach the watch exercises which teachers the dog its name and focuses the dogs attention on to the handler.

Basic positions will be taught - sit, down and loose lead heel work will be started.

Attendance certificate and rosette will be presented to those completing the beginner course.

The beginner course leads on to the bronze levels.
