Our aim is to help train & socialise your puppies & dogs, helping to make every day life easy for all.
Building your dog’s self-confidence
A large proportion of canine behavioural problems are rooted in the dogs having a lack of confidence. That’s where a group class can prove to be exceptionally helpful. Each class shows the dog with low confidence levels that other dogs and new things (novelty) aren’t such a big deal. In our group settings we ensure that all members maintain a sensible distance between each dog, which helps to keep the learning environment as stress free, comfortable and safe for all attendees.
The confidence-building games we use are easy for you to learn, which means you can practice playing them at home, as well as in class, to really develop your dogs learning at a pace that suits you both. Your dog’s confidence will gradually increase over a number of sessions - in no time at all, you’ll have a dog who is confident, relaxed, who listens and recalls to you, first time, every time.
We will work with you so that you are the highest value “thing” in your dogs world meaning they would rather be with you than racing off round the park, potentially getting in to trouble!
