Introductory Obedience class number is strictly limited .  You must register for this course to secure your place.  

The Introductory Beginners Course is for dogs aged 4 to 5 months who have attended the club’s pre-school puppy course but who are still too young or immature to advance to the more formal basic obedience course.

This course focuses on socialization activities and introduces obedience training in a fun environment.  Introduces the puppy to:   new equipment, new textures and new experiences; focusing; starts teaching the basics of walking on lead; rear-end awareness; balance.

The course cost includes single membership fee so if you do continue on to the basic obedience course (within the same membership year) it will be at a reduced cost as you have already paid the membership fee.

Dogs must have had the third vaccination.  Please bring the dog’s current vaccination certificate with you when enrolling. 

The club promotes reward based positive reinforcement training so you will need to bring some small, soft, tasty treats for your puppy.   The treats must be something extra special that you will only use when training the pup.
