Teenage and Adult Classes

Please note our teen and adult dog training classes can be held in person or via Zoom if preferred.

PLEASE NOTE: Your dog must be comfortable and happy around other dogs to join this class.  If this is not the case with your dog, please get in contact to discuss a 1:1 session to train them to socialise with others.

We understand that the thought of getting help with dog training can be a headache. Our dog training courses are designed to give you all the tools you need to get training off to a positive start.

Our teen/adult training sessions are for dogs aged 20 weeks and over and run over 4 weeks. These 1 to 1 classes are totally tailored to you and your dog –  you guide the training plan by letting us know what your goals are, and what problem areas you would like to tackle.

Our training sessions are incredibly popular with owners of dogs of all ages, but particularly so with teen and adult dogs who may have developed bad habits.  These habits may have arisen from dogs coming from a rescue centre background into a new family home or for dogs who have had no or little training.

By using our expert knowledge we can address your concerns and give you the tools to tackle them right on the spot.

Our teen and adult dog training classes run as a 1hr session every week, plus we are on hand for virtual support throughout the week. The 4 sessions are further supported by video tutorials and virtual handouts tailored to the dog’s needs.

All of our adult classes are tailor-made to suit the abilities of each individual dog in the class. Class sizes are kept small to enable more one-to-one time with the trainers.

Things covered within the course include:

  • food manners
  • the settle
  • sit
  • down
  • stand
  • loose lead work
  • stay
  • wait and recall as well as other things.

Classes are open to new and existing clients.

Participants who successfully complete these classes can go on to our intermediate and advanced training sessions if they wish.

We have just finished the intermediate class after completing the puppy training. We have learnt so much from both classes that we can use forever. I would definitely recommend continuing to the intermediate class (teenagers are hard work!!) Rachael and her team have a huge amount of knowledge and understanding and have been a massive help both in and out of class.
