Novice Obedience Clicker Training Classes
These classes are suitable for puppies who have completed our puppy training course.
Clicker training is an operant conditioning method that we like to encourage our clients to use in our obedience courses. The clicker is used as a marker of the correct behaviour that our dogs have demonstrated. We shape the dogs behaviour in a kind and gentle way ensuring all dogs are calm and happy whilst they learn. We encourage the use of treats along with the clicker. A clicker will be provided for you to keep as part of the registration.

Places are restricted to 6 per class. (from time to time we may be able to accommodate additional attendees. Please ask on booking)
All dogs must be friendly and able to work in small groups with other dogs.
Payment is required in advance by bank transfer to guarantee your place. (We are unable to accept cheques)
Proof of vaccination is required for all our classes. (Whilst we request that all puppies and dogs attending classes are fully vaccinated, it is your decision to choose whether or not to re-vaccinate annually. Should you decide not to re-vaccinate your dog annually Paws 4 Training is not liable for any illnesses your dog may contract whilst attending training with us)
