© Want more from your dog?
Expect more from your trainer!

Indoor dog training classes held at North Warnborough Village Hall in Hook and St. Philip & St. James Church Hall in Fleet. Our aim is to promote responsible dog ownership with a clear human to canine communication system.

Puppy Classes

Our puppy classes are similar to that of an infant school; fun and informative! Classes are structured to show you how to train your puppy through the use of Kinesthetic techniques (motivational learning through physical activity and productive play). It covers both classical and operant conditioning → the use of verbal markers to clarify communication and shape behaviour.

    You will introduce your puppy to...
  • Sit, down & stand
  • Recall with distractions
  • Fetch & release toy
  • Respond to name
  • Walk on a loose lead
  • Handling for inspection & grooming
  • Greeting people/puppies
  • Doorway manners

The aim of the puppy classes are to teach elementary commands, basic manners and healthy social skills. This is a gentle learning curve designed to lay down solid foundations and prepare your puppy for companion dog training. Puppy classes will not benefit dogs that have reached adolescence (normally from six months of age).

Puppies will learn very quickly so you should attend classes as soon as possible! The best time to start is about a week after your puppy has settled in its new home. If you have selected your puppy from a responsible breeder, your puppy will have acquired its mother immunity and can normally attend indoors training classes, veterinary practices and groomers. You should not allow your puppy access to outdoor public places where health hazards cannot be properly controlled.

Courses run on a roll-on, roll off basis so there is no need to wait for a new course to begin. Please arrive five minutes early to your first class to register and do not feed your puppy before any activity, including training!

Bring with you 80 cash (no cheques on registration), inoculation card, collar and lead, high motivational soft treats (not hard biscuits) and a favourite toy.

Companion Dog Training

Companion classes are enjoyable (even entertaining) and pragmatic! The training is educational and constructive for real life situations. Puppies should progress to this class if they are to reinforce good foundations and further their education. Adolescent and adult dogs can join at any time, though please call to discuss any issues that might affect their learning.

The aim is for you and your dog to reach the standard set by the British Institute of Professional Dog Trainers' (B.I.P.D.T) National Pet Code. Dog owners are encouraged to train their dog in basic obedience, appreciate the importance of handling and caring for their dog and have an awareness of the Laws that relate to dog ownership.

The main purpose of the National Code is to demonstrate that your dog can be trained and conditioned to behave at home, in public places and in the presence of other dogs in a manner that will reflect credit on the dog. The scheme consists of three levels (Bronze, Silver and Gold) and is open to all breeds and dogs over the age of six months. The test is as practical as possible and some of it is likely be held outside

  • Sit, down, stand

  • Motivational play
  • Recall to present
