Attending training classes with your dog, in any shape or form, is fun. You get to learn something new and meet other people who love their dogs just as much as you love yours. Your dog gets to spend quality time with its favourite person, whilst enjoying the mental and physical stimulation of a range of new activities. ... But when it comes to Obedience training, there's a lot more to be had than just fun.
Everybody likes a dog that will sit on command and that doesn't beg or steal food. But as the law stands today, all dog owners are charged with the responsibility of 'being in control' of their dog at all times, be it at home or whilst out in public. Some of the key behaviours that are required for a dog to be considered 'under control' are:
Once learned, these behaviours will not only make your everyday home life easier, but they should ensure that nobody ever reports your dog for being a 'nuisance' and could even prove to be an invaluable safety measure. That may sound extreme to some, but a dog who does not touch food until told to do so is far less likely to ingest something toxic. And of course, being able to call your dog away from livestock, other unknown/reactive dogs or a family having a picnic, perhaps, reduces the risk of an altercation considerably.
So, whether you have just got a new pedigree puppy, adopted a crossbreed dog from a rescue, have a hound with behavioural issues, or simply want to spend some quality time with your best friend, why not come and see how our Obedience classes can help you?
We have a range of session times / levels suitable for all dogs, from the young, bouncy beginners up to the more mature Obedience 'veterans', because no dog is ever too old to learn new tricks!
