DAILY LESSONS AND THEN HOME TO SLEEP
(ANY NUMBER OF DAYS WEEKLY)
With a hectic work and family life, it can sometimes be difficult to meet the mental and physical needs of our dogs on a daily basis. Our day school for dogs may be just the solution you need. This alternative to regular daycare is based along the same lines as a school for children. Your dog attends as a day student as frequently to suit your requirements, training is optional on each visit. We care for, exercise, stimulate and teach your dog the things they need to know in order to be accepted into society as a member of your family. Our aim is to teach your dog all of the skills and manners they need so that you can take them anywhere without the fear of them embarrassing you.
CRITICAL SOCIALISING OF PUPPIES
When puppies are at that critical age, it’s so important that they are getting adequate and positive socialisation to ensure they grow up to become a confident and social member of the family. Our puppy lessons are tailored to suit the age and needs of each individual puppy. Socialisation is easy and fun in our group activity sessions which diligently supervised, with a low staff to dog ratio. We will ensure that your puppy has healthy opportunities to socialise with a wide range of dogs in a safe and controlled environment. We will continue your toilet training regime during the time your puppy is at school with us.
Owner training is a vital part of the process and your trainer will recommend how often to book 121 training sessions. We upload images daily to Facebook and also upload video’s of progress on a regular basis in order for owners to know and understand what training has taken place. The formal owner training takes place on a 121 basis as often as required. Some owners have 121 lessons on a weekly basis and other owners less frequent, this is totally dependant on the needs of the owner.
LOVE AND EDUCATION FOR YOUR PRECIOUS POOCH
Some dogs may find being at home alone very stressful, leading to barking or destructive behaviours. Whilst you’re out for the day we can care for and educate your dog. Training sessions are fun and your dog will learn to think and figure out for himself that good behaviours are rewarded and undesired behaviours are ignored.
With consistent daily lessons, most dogs learn what behaviours are needed in order to get the treat.
TEACHING YOUR DOG TO LOVE LEARNING
Regular and controlled training and activity sessions can really help your nervous dog to build their confidence. Well managed confidence building lessons along with controlled interactions with other dogs can play an integral part of rehabilitation or behaviour modification.
Our staff have years of experience with dogs that may struggle around other dogs and need slow gentle introductions at their own pace. We take every effort to ensure that your dog is comfortable with both our other guests and all members of our team so that every visit is a joyful one!
DAILY PHOTOS AND VIDEO
At the end of the day you can check out our Facebook page and our Instagram to see what your dog has been up to and all the friends that they’ve been making! Dogs that are in training can expect video’s of their dogs progress on a weekly basis.
