Obedience Dog Training
Good Citizen Award Dog Training
Obedience dog training for a good pet dog takes an average of two years. The Kennel Club Good Citizen Scheme is a fun way to build your dog’s training into everyday life. Dogs who achieve the gold standard are the ones you see in the park happily trotting along next to their owner rather than chasing that squirrel!
Our weekly classes are a mix of obedience work towards your next kennel club award and fun activities with your dog. We might spend time learning new tricks, doing canine conditioning or have a taster session of one of the many dog sport activities.
For many people the weekly classes become a hobby for you and your dog. The rule is that all of life’s stress gets left at the barn door and you enjoy an hour a week with your dog. Just make sure that your dog can have a good sleep afterwards because they are often shattered!
Dogs need a job to do and having tricks and training to practise throughout the week helps across all areas of their life. The dogs that stay on at training often have fewer behaviour problems because they understand that making good choices means rewards for them.
