This is a fun and friendly class uses modern reward and motivation building training methods to teach you and your dog the skills required of a working gun dog, which are as practical in every day life as they are for the working dog.
Subjects covered include:
Stop / sit to whistle • Recall to whistle • Walking to heel • Stimulus (self) control • Pick up a dummy • Sendaways
This class is open to all breeds as we feel that many of the skills required of a gundog are very useful for family pets too, however as a lot of training involves working at distance from the owners, its not suitable for dogs that have fear or aggressive issues with other dogs. Please note dogs should wear properly fitted harnesses or collars, slip leads are not to be worn in a training situation.
Please bring your dog’s favourite toy to carry.
You might also like to bring along a training diary so that you can make notes relating to your own dog’s individual performance.
If it is cold or wet, please do bring a jacket for your dog, just like us they will find learning much easier if they are feeling content and comfortable.
Classes available in Clavering on Thursdays at mid day
