Beginner Puppy Course - 6 weeks  - Back post lockdown easing after March 29th - with strict Covid procedures in place

A 6 week course for puppies and rescue dogs. 

In this 6 week course, you and your puppy/rescue dog will learn all you need for them to develop lifelong good manners. We cover topics such as proper puppy play, mouthing, the essential basic commands such as how to focus on you, walk on a loose lead, recall and more. Perhaps most fun of all, we allow your dogs to socialise, play and importantly build confidence. 

All training is done outside at Berkshire College of Agriculture, setting your dog up for success in the real world; so please come prepared for the outdoors! Only positive, reward-based methods are used that are proven to be effective.

New procedures in place. As per the government guidelines, these will include each dog being handled by only one adult so unfortunately no other family members to attend. All dogs to remain on leads at all times and no handling of other people’s dogs. Social distancing to be adhered to throughout. No course will have more than 5 dogs/5 handlers plus myself present. More details will be sent with the confirmed location.

6 x 1 hour sessions weekly: £110
