What Your Dog Will Learn:
Loose Lead Walking - No one wants to be dragged down the streets of Bristol as lovely as they are! Lead walking becomes even more important when you have an older dog.
Recall - If you want to be able to let your dog off lead you're going to need to be able to trust them to come back. That's why the recall is an essential skill for every dog.
Stay - How to stay even in a distracting dog training class. This is a great skill for when you need your dog to stay in one position whilst you attend to something like a knock on the door.
Drop - If you're dog has something they shouldn't (like litter) then it's critical you can get it back quickly. Teaching your dog to drop it when asked is a great way to do that.
Settle - When you take your dog out to enjoy the cafes and pubs of Bristol they're going to need to be able to settle down in a busy environment. We practice this in our adult dog classes.
Husbandry - We all know dogs that hate going to the vets or the groomers but that doesn't have to be your dog. Through training we can get them used to being handled and inspected so these visits are as easy as a walk in the park.
Hand Target - Teaching your dog to touch their nose to your hand is a great way to reposition them either to teach them another new skill or just for everyday life - like getting them in from the garden.
Achievement Bandana & Certificate -
We believe that learning doesn't stop at puppyhood. That's why we give all attendees an achievement bandana, if your dog passes our adult dog class you will be awarded your Adult Dog Patch. This is the equivalent of a martial arts belt or Brownies badges.
If you choose to keep training you can earn various badges through our different classes and prove to the world just what an awesome team you make.
