Do I need to attend every week?
Classes at Impington are on going, so you don't have to commit to attending every week - although it is best if you can in the Puppy & Beginner's Classes. Classes at Caldecote are offered as 6 week one off starter Courses.
What do I need to bring?
Your Puppy or Dog!.. &...their vaccination certificate..... lead & collar (extendable leads should not be used in a training class) - a 4 to 6 foot long lead and collar is best to start with. Some treats your dog really likes - (the one's that can be broken in to small pieces are best).
Who Can Join?
Under 16's Just in case you need to know we don't have classes for those under
16 years to take part in. Our situation is different from many other clubs.
We are outside (not in a secured hall) and sometimes there are 6 classes
running and there can be reactive dogs within some classes.
Training class are to show you ideas and methods of getting your dog
to do or not do certain things and results come from practising at home,
so certainly under 16's can come along and observe and then be guided
at home by the adult taking part in the class.
Puppies and dogs of all ages are welcome to join our classes - However due to the style of classes we hold we are unable to offer class places to adult dogs that are over reactive to other dogs and or people. If you have a dog with these or other serious behaviour problems than its advisable to seek 1to1 help from a Canine Behaviourist.
If you consider you have a reactive dog we are happy to assess your dog and offer free help and advice on its suitability of joining our classes or getting 1to1 help.
We have a great group of dogs and
people training in our classes, a pleasant venue and always a number of classes
running at the same time and as much as all the Instructors want to help dogs
with problems – A class situation is not the best place for over reactive dogs
– It becomes a very stressful place for the dog, the owner, and every other dog
and owner attending
