Our puppy clicker training course runs for 6 weeks and is suitable for puppies from 8 – weeks to 22 weeks. During the course we will be working on behaviours to teach your puppy to have a good foundation level of training and will help you progress quickly with any further training you choose to attend with us.
We use clicker training in our classes. Clicker training is an operant conditioning method of training that produces great results. We use free-shaping and luring for the training so the puppies learn in a kind and gentle way ensuring all dogs are happy whilst they learn. Treats are used along with the clicker. A clicker will be provided for you to keep as part of the registration.
What your puppy will learn:
- Focus exercises – response to name, eye contact and touch (target training)
- Settle on a mat
- Loose lead walking
- Leave food
- Drop or exchange an item
- Basic chin exercise to assist with calm handling
The cost is £75 for a 6 week course. The class is for 45 minutes which allows time for questions at the end of the class.
Vaccinations: All puppies and dogs attending classes must be fully vaccinated and proof of vaccination must be shown at your first class. Should you choose not to vaccinate, a letter stating your dog’s blood titre levels must be presented on headed paper and signed by your veterinary surgeon. If you choose these routes, Paws 4 Training will not be held responsible for any illness your dog may contract whilst training with Paws 4 Training at our training centre. (*Exception puppies attending socialisation course will be accepted after their first vaccination)
We only use kind and gentle methods in our training classes and 1-2-1’s and do not allow the use of choke (check) chains, slip leads or slip collars, half choke (check) collars, non-pull harnesses or flexi leads.
Our aim is to create an outstanding class to offer our clients with behaviour in mind right from the start.
