The classes are structured so you will learn something new  every  week, and by  the  end of the course you  should  have a dog that is able to do the basic commands and more…..

But why should I train  my dog?

When you train your dog it is the beginning of a relationship. You communicate with other members of your family so why not your dog?. 

How long will the training take?

Training is an on-going process  as all dogs learn at different speeds therefore there is no set time limit. If you attend  one of our courses, and practice at home, then you  should see a marked improvement by the end of a course.

At Four Paws we train only  with positive and reward based training methods , when we are teaching your dog to do a “Sit” we reward him/her for doing the Sit. As time goes by and your dog begins to know the commands you give them, then you will start to wean off the treats, but you must ALWAYS praise your dog.

Dogs are creatures of habit and if they have a good experience with something, then they are likely to repeat the behaviour…before you know it, your dog is sitting, staying, not jumping up, and  leaving  those things they shouldn’t be touching ,like your socks, slippers, TV remote control, or your mobile phone! .

You can always keep updated with how our classes are going by  visiting us on our Facebook page.

If you are unable to attend weekly classes then we also do 1-2-1 Home Training.
