This 60 mins class builds on the exercises learned in our Positive Puppies class. The fun, kind training method of ‘clicker’ training is used predominantly in this class to teach good manners and to build the relationship between puppy and handler. Handlers not wishing to use a clicker box can use a reward marker word - I use both with my dogs. Questions are encouraged and basic puppy issues covered. A good response to their name, coming when called, lead walking, health examination, basic positions of sit/down/stand, play and behaviour around puppies and adult dogs are all included in this class. I also cover advice on the usual puppy behaviours through to adolescence.
Puppies who have completed a Positive Puppies course may book this course. Maximum 6 dogs.
Each puppy may bring a maximum of three people or less if restricted by Government guidance regarding Covid-19. Social distancing measures must be adhered to at all times. This class is outdoors - prepare for the weather. If, in advance, I feel the weather is unsuitable, the class will be delivered via Zoom meeting.
Ensure you bring your own chair, drink, water, water bowl, hand soap, towel, wipes, mask and gloves if required. A toilet may be available for emergencies or those travelling long distances to attend but you will be responsible for wiping down all handles, taps, etc after use.
Held in Birdlip, Gloucestershire.
