Puppy & Good Manners Training

Our Good Manners classes follow the syllabi laid out in the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) Good Companion Awards and Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme.  They include how dogs learn, motivating your dog, the correct use of rewards vs. bribery, identifying stress signals and offer the opportunity to take assessments and gain rosettes and certificates. 

KCGCDS assessments are not available during Covid-19 restrictions. APDT Good Companion Award assessments are available online and when classes are permitted by current restrictions.

Each level teaches new exercises and advances those learned on the course before. If you want a well-behaved dog these are the classes for you.  More details in each class description.

Please note these classes are not remedial classes and so are not suitable for dogs with behavioural issues towards dogs or people. Please book through the Private Training page for one to one training and advice.
