Puppy Foundation KCGCDS

At Dogs Country Club we are here to help owners realise just how much their puppy is capable of, when to exercise and rest their puppy, how to change their puppy’s behaviour in a positive way and how to build that all-important bond between puppy and owner. We aim to get this information across using positive, practical and easy-to-understand, fun training sessions and the results so far are proving it’s a job we are doing well. By giving a puppy lots of opportunities to experience our big wide world in a positive way, they learn from a very early age that the sights, sounds, smells and people in this world are not all scary. Dealing with the unknown in everyday life is easier for a puppy than for the adult dog. That’s why we positively encourage all new puppy owners to sign up for our Puppy Training. 

 

What will we learn?

  • home training, toilet duties, dressing up to going out
  • handling your dog for cleaning and grooming duties
  • puppy recalls
  • basic position: sit and down
  • how to play, as play is an important part of your relationship with your dog
  • rules for walking on lead paying attention to you
  • socialization with other puppies and dogs: how to do it right!
  • exposure to different situation for a confident and well socialized dog in the future.
  • dogs body language

 

Who Can Join?

Silver is even more challenging for you and your dog but will improve your training skills and your dog's knowledge of the exercises.

 

What Will I Learn?

  • road walk: keep training your lead walking skills in the training environment and out and about. We are going to meet in Lowton to get you ready to walk your dog around distractions and around traffic
  • recall away from distractions and recall from a wait: your recall is going to have a boost! We will work with more distractions to make it more reliable.
  • stays: the stay will be longer!!
  • we will work on more food manners and self-control and on greeting people in a controlled way. No jumping up!
  • examination of the dog from a stranger is the aim of the assessment. We will get your dog used to be examined by people that are not you and be comfortable in that situation.

... and lots more!
