Novice Obedience Clicker Training Classes
This course is suitable for puppies who have completed our puppy training course or puppies and dogs who have completed our foundation obedience clicker training course.
Clicker training is an operant conditioning method that we 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.
Each course is for 6 weeks, classes are for 45 minutes and the cost of the course is £75 which is payable in advance by bank transfer.
