Frequently Asked Questions

WHEN CAN I START TRAINING?

You can start very basic training as soon as you get your puppy or dog home; but you do need to wait until they have had their first vaccinations to join a class.

 

IS IT ONLY PEDIGREE DOGS THAT CAN TAKE THE KENNEL CLUB AWARDS?

Absolutely not! The Kennel Club Good Citizen Scheme is open to all dogs, any shape, any size, any age.

 

WHAT IF MY DOGS OLDER?

No problem! It's never too late to start. Older dogs like learning too, and training is a great way to develop a strong bond between you and your dog.

 

WHICH COURSES IS RIGHT FOR ME AND MY DOG?

Give me a call or drop me an email and we can go from there to match you to the right course.

WHAT DO I NEED FOR CLASS?

You, your dog, a collar, and a lead (preferably not an extender lead as we find fabric or leather ones best for training).

Your dogs collar needs to also have the correct ID tag on to successfully complete the course - this is a requirement by law and not just a rule set out by the Kennel Club. So you need your family surname, first line of your address, and postcode on the tag (anything else is up to you, maybe a phone number but it's best not to add your dogs name).

You will definitely need tasty treats and a favourite toy!

Along with this on the first week we will need to see a copy of your dogs current up to date vaccination record and they will also have their microchip scanned.

WHAT IF MY DOG BARKS OR IS SHY?

DON’T WORRY! This is quite common on the first week as it's often a brand new environment they're experiencing; but quite often by week 2, they are much more relaxed. We will always help you and your dog overcome any worries you may have.

 

WHAT SIZES ARE THE CLASSES?

Only small groups, we look at who's in our class on a individual basis and work on a ratio of 1 instructor to 4 dogs maximum.

WHAT IF I MISS A WEEKS TRAINING , HOW WILL I CATCH UP?

We hand out homework sheets that go over everything covered in class each week for the puppy course. Bronze, Silver, and Gold all have a Kennel Club course guide sheet that you will be given a copy of on week 1.

 

Any additional support you need just email or phone, we’re always there to help.

DO YOU HAVE INSURANCE?

Yes, all areas of the business are fully covered.
