These classes follow on from Puppy and Beginner training and are designed to build upon the dogs'
earlier learning. The classes incorporate a mixture of exercises taken from the Kennel Club Good Citizen Scheme syllabus
(which is useful but rather boring to teach if that is all that we were to do!) Therefore Christina also includes other
exercises to teach dogs to pay attention in a wide variety of situations and circumstances, including everyday life situations,
competitive obedience exercises, an introduction to agility, tricks to keep dogs and owners on their toes (it's amazing
how many dogs are very quickly bored with sit stays but really start to pay attention again when you throw in the odd twirl
here and there!) and games.
We also concentrate
on helping owners learn how to get their dog working for them in a variety of situations and understanding more of the theory
behind how their dog learns. We often say that puppy and beginner training is just an introduction to training your dog
and this course is where the learning really begins. The classes also recognise the social side of dog training for both
dogs and owners and are designed to be fun.
