Guidance for The Dog Training - provided by the CFSG 12.03.21
"Training classes may take place for either up to six people or from two households in any place outdoors except a private dwelling. The organisation should ensure the activity takes place in a COVID-secure manner to ensure there is no mixing. Trainer and clients should wear face coverings and maintain social distance and hand washing after handling dogs is advised".
Face Coverings will be needed for classes until the Covid restrictions are relaxed.
CLASSES WILL BE HELD OUTSIDE.
At this current time, we can only allow 1 owner per dog, but we will let you know as soon as this changes.
Our next stage puppy class is for puppies and young dogs over 16 weeks up to 1 year old. The class will be 6 weeks with a 1 week's break after week 3. Each class is 1 hour.
This class is the natural follow-on class for those who have completed our Puppy Foundation/Basic Class or for puppies and young dogs who are older than 16 weeks and have completed a basic level training course or have had a 1-1 home visit from Puppy Stars.
Note: If you have not completed our entry level classes, you may need to complete a 1-1 home visit prior to the start of the course.
In our Puppy Intermediate class your puppy will continue to develop their lifelong social skills. The average age for pups in this class is between 6 and 9 months old. If your dog is older, you will both gain valuable skills from the curriculum; but the social aspects of the class may be different for your young adult dog once he is more mature.
Practical Training for Real Life
Because your puppy will spend much of its life on and off lead, we will over the classes teach you how to work with your puppy both ways: with a lead and without one. Our positive training techniques make learning fast, fun, and motivating… for all of you!
Family members of all ages are always welcome in our classes.
Our Puppy Intermediate class includes:
- Refining Obedience Skills – sit, down, stay, recall and lead skills etc.
- Manners – Walking nicely, jumping up, leave, settle down
- Social Skills – continue to develop with other puppies and with humans, grown in confidence in a variety of settings, exercises to prevent aggression.
- Distraction Skills – Working in a group setting with mild to moderate distractions.
