Puppy Classes and Improvers Classes in Andover, Hampshire or Tidworth, Wiltshire at
But how do we train?
Our puppy classes and improvers classes are based around establishing or building a happy relationship with your dog. So we do this by using force free, positive reinforcement, reward-based training methods. All of our training classes are fun and motivating and does not involve harsh handling or methods that could inflict fear, pain or discomfort to your dog. Because we love our dogs after all. Please bring food to our training classes, generally something that is small enough to swallow and soft because chewing can be distracting. Food is the most motivating thing to a dog, so with early learning, we can reinforce new behaviours quicker with food than something such as a toy. Verbal praise is actually the lowered motivator for a dog in terms of wanting to do a behaviour more often.

These classes have up to six dogs and only two people max to attend classes with their dog per household. This is due to current government guidelines with Coronavirus. Your dog MUST be okay to be around other dogs
