Frequently Asked Class Questions

We would recommend the Teenager Beginners course or the Burties Refreshers course to start them from the beginning and quickly advance their training skills.

It depends on the type of reactivity your dog has, if they become stressed even with dogs in the distance then I would recommend booking a behaviour consultation first. However, if your dog can feel comfortable around dogs at a distance then we can provide you with plenty of space in our outdoor venues.

We would recommend the Teenager Advanced or the Happy Hounds Expert’s course.

If you end up missing a class, our trainers can catch you up on anything you have missed the following week. We also have training videos for you to watch, so you can catch up online too! If you end up missing the last week, which is the enrichment lesson, then we can arrange for you to join the last week from another course that works for you.

Yes, once you have booked a course, all the lessons will be at the same time and at the same place each week, for the duration of the course.

Yes, we can transfer you to another course, as long as we have spaces to do so.

We will postpone the lesson to the following week or nearest possible date. The course will still run its full amount of lessons but will end at a later date than intended. We try to avoid this happening but extreme weather or sickness can occasionally cause this to happen.

Yes, we don’t allow slips collars, choke chains, half checks, martingale collars, head collars or e-collars. We recommend your dogs wear a Y-shaped harness with a chest clip and a back clip combined with a double ended training lead if your dog pulls, or a standard flat collar and lead if your dog doesn’t pull much.

High value treats, the fresher and smellier the better as your dog will focus more. Your dogs on lead and some appropriate footwear/weather proof coats depending on the forecast!

Yes we are family friendly and welcome your friends to take part if they wish.

As soon as your puppy has been fully-vaccinated you are ready to go!
