Training Classes Puppy and Dog 5 week physical classes

Our Method

There are different classes for different ages and topics. These are basic training for dogs from puppy, adolescence and upwards.

All of our classes are informal, friendly and we use reward based methods and try to keep them fun for both the owner and dog.

In the classes you will be encouraged to succeed with the exercises and will get individual advice when you need it.

Most will run as courses with the same group of dogs, there are courses for basic training, enrichment, scent work and a very different dog course with exercises not normally found in normal dog training classes, introducing some different skills.

You can book all of our classes here and if you have any questions you can contact us on: info@dog-training-ni.co.uk

  • Each class is limited to 8 participants (one dog owner per dog)
  • Each participant has to adhere to all existing social distancing rules (see here), and will be restricted to an area of 2 m2 (which will be clearly marked out)
  • Each participant to please bring your own face mask to wear for the duration of the class. Please see guidelines here
  • Each participant will have to bring their own dog bowls, leads and water so there will be no sharing of equipment
  • There will be no physical touching of any equipment and once class is over participants will be asked not to loiter in the training zone
  • Participants will be asked to stagger their entry into and out of the training zone
  • Participants will be asked to sanitize their hands before and after class and to use paper towels which will be disposed of safely afterwards by Dog Training NI

Update 18/05/2020 (ONLINE CLASSES NOW AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE)

It is still not currently possible for us to offer face to face group training sessions, so we are bringing puppy, adolescent and golden oldie dog training to your home instead by offering new online training classes.

Each of these separate courses can be purchased online and you can progress through the exercises at your own pace.

Robin and his team are still dedicated to training your dog only with reward based training and positive reinforcement and with the belief that dogs young and old can be trained using kind and positive methods.

You can preview the courses and purchase them via the link here which will give you automatic access to the platform where all the trainingmaterial is available.

 

Update 18/03/2020

Due to the worldwide spread of Coronavirus, we have decided to suspend our puppy and dog training classes at all the venues as a preventative measure and to ensure everyone’s safety. We will resume face to face training once it is safe to do so. We will honour any existing bookings and publish to this page the new course dates once scheduled .
