Our beginner’s dog obedience course is designed as an introduction for both you and your dog to become familiar with the basics of dog obedience. The classes provide dogs of all ages, size and breed an opportunity to gain experience and confidence in socialising with a variety of other dogs and handlers. Our experienced trainers will introduce you and your dog to a variety of skills including heal on lead, left and right turns and about turns, sit/stand/drop/stay and distance recall as well as providing a taster of the further training opportunities available as a member of our club such as agility training.
The Beginners Course lecture is held on the first Wednesday of the month from 7.00pm – 8.00pm. Dogs are not required for this lecture, so please leave them at home for this first session.
