Our courses run for eight weeks for both Puppies and Adult dogs, aiming at obtaining a qualification certificate for your efforts at the end of the course.During your eight weeks we will show you how to get your dog to recall to you, even from other dogs, to sit, lay down, stand, go flat (play dead) and much more, on command. We will also introduce your dog to fun agility.During the lessons we normally use one or two pieces of the agility equipment (subject to the age of the dog); these can include the 5 meter tunnel(s), weave poles, see-saw, hurdles, tyre, long jump and 'A' frame. Not only because both the owner and dog thoroughly enjoy it but because it builds the dogs confidence as well.
Our Golden Rule for Dog Training here at Dog Academy is:
Reward in your training is Everything.
This will be in the form of food, praise, or play.You will learn the correct time to reward your dog to encourage learning as well as the correct time to ignore your dog to avoid bad habits.It is important to give praise at the correct time and in the correct way. We will ensure that you are trained at the correct pace for you and your dog to enable you to become an efficient team.We will ensure that you can walk before we teach you to run.
