Well Trained Woofers: Obedience Class
Are you tired of your furry friends unruly behaviour and longing for a harmonious bond with your canine companion, instead?
Look no further!
We’re super excited to announce that our ‘Well Trained Woofers’ Basic Obedience Class is here to transform your dog into the well-behaved, obedient and joyful companion you’ve always dreamed of.
The training course is run over four consecutive weeks comprising of one hour sessions each time, training in various locations around Buxton.
This class has been specifically designed to helps of all ages and levels, who aren’t currently listening to their owners and are struggling with completing basic behaviours, around distraction
All dogs are welcome, no matter how early or advanced
If your dog is reactive, we can create space for them to make things easier
There will be a maximum of 6 dogs in the class, and we’ve updated the content so that you will be working on and learning a wide variety of skills suited to your individual purpose, that will help to solidify your foundations.
What Are You Going To Learn?
The first session will involve focus and connection, and lots of it, in a new environment, around new dogs and people!
No handler can work their dog without connection and the dog listening to them
So, in this lesson, we will develop the reliable and refreshing method of neutrality around distractions, for you to see, that with the right parameters and set up that your dog is capable of listening to you around lots of different distractions.
Once we have mastered the first stage of focus, then we will progress to the next stage where we test their skills and ensuring it is solid before you leave the lesson
There will be sufficient rest periods provided for the dogs during the sessions.
You will then be expected to practice your training throughout the week, ready for the following class.
It’s the second week, and we’ve left the curriculum open.
I want to be helping people with the behaviours they need the most help with and that will vary from class to class and person to person.
I will have plenty of things to suggest for training, but the most common issues I get asked about and what this class will likely work on will be loose lead walking and recall
Regardless of the training task at hand, we will be looking at precision in all of the ways you’re building behaviours.
I want your dog to do the behaviour on their own and without prompt from you, which is what dog training is about!
We want you to leave each lesson having learned a new skill and know exactly what to do in different situations when training and handling your dog,
Be that them reliably responding to the ‘heel’ command.
Listening to their return to me commands
Waiting at the side of the pavement before crossing the road or greeting new people
Settling around multiple and various distractions
and much more!
It’s week three!
Moving forwards during the course, we will help you with the existing behaviour that you want to progress and complete, or teach you something brand new, so that you can work on different elements to your dogs training journey.
There are millions of things we can train with our dogs, and we’re here to help you, week by week to continually progress your dogs great behaviours.
Each class will assist with untangling the frustration or rebuilding the dogs confidence around different distractions week by week.
We only work with people who understand that dog training isn’t like waving a magic wand and the issue will be fixed, there is no such thing.
It requires work.
It requires letting go of things you may have unknowingly thought to be true and learning new skills.
So work with me, and let me give you the training and support you need.
In order to graduation, you will undertake a short practical based test, of everything we have covered during the course.
This means, you need to have been to each lesson in order to pass.
