Obedience Training

General Obedience training can free up your relationship with your dog.

Services

Puppy Class

Puppy Class is open to dogs from their first set of Jabs up to around the age of six months. After six months their development is such that it is more beneficial to push them a bit further, and they would be better suited to the Bronze Class.
We spend a lot of time on Focus and Engagement, introducing important skills such as impulse control.
The Puppy Class is on Friday evenings, 17:00 – 18:00 at the Club Field in Stubbington, and costs £75 for the full six week course. The next course start date is the 9th September 2022, and you can book online following the correct button at the bottom or side of this page.

Silver Class

Silver Class is the follow on from Bronze Class, and adds distance, distraction and duration to the skills previously learned.
The Silver Class is on Friday evenings, 19:00 – 20:00 at the Club Field in Stubbington, and costs £60 for the full six week course. The next course start date is the 9th September 2022, and you can book online following the correct button at the bottom or side of this page.

Recall Package

A complete package of 4 private, hour long sessions taken at your pace. The package includes a variety of video tutorials, some written material, and delves deep into the psychology of the perfect recall. We experiment with different reinforcers, and have a variety of distractions to help train. The total cost is £150.

Private Sessions

Private sessions can be arranged at both the Club Field or for a Home Visit to your house or local area. Cost depends on the service provided, but in general a half hour is £25, an hour is £40 and a Home Visit is £50.
These sessions can include anything from general puppy training to more advanced companion obedience, or even competitive obedience.

Bronze Class

Bronze Class is the first of the general Companion Obedience courses, which builds on the foundations of the Puppy Class. However, it is able to be joined without having attended the Puppy Class.
We focus on off lead control skills in general, but also other important techniques such as settling in crowded areas.
The Bronze Class is on Friday evenings, 18:00 – 19:00 at the Club Field in Stubbington, and costs £75 for the full six week course. The next course start date is the 9th September 2022, and you can book online following the correct button at the bottom or side of this page.

Gold Class

The Gold Class is our top level companion obedience class, and here we perfect our behaviors in a variety of situations with increased distractions and duration. We start looking at competitive obedience skills, and introductions to other Dog Sports.
The Gold Class is on Friday evenings, 20:00 – 21:00 at the Club Field in Stubbington, and costs £60 for the full six week course. The next course start date is the 9th September 2022, and you can book online following the correct button at the bottom or side of this page..

Loose Lead Walking Package

This package is four hours of private sessions, taking you from pulled-along to pleasantly ambling. The focus is on getting your dog to enjoy being next to you, and to focus on you, rather than the environment. We teach your dog to understand when he needs to return to your side, and how to take his pace from yours. The total cost is £150 for the whole package, including video tutorials and written materials.

A variety of workshops are available in Spring, Summer and Autumn. The most popular obedience workshops are Recall and Recall for Hunters and Chasers.

How We Work

Methods

We only use proven, progressive and positive methods, always managing the situations and environments to ensure your dog is able to ‘win’ every time. Where we can, we involve play in the training, as evidence has shown that neural pathways are formed more quickly when learned through play.

Proof

With thousands of hours of teaching and training experience we can make sure that your goals are achieved in a timely and positive manner. Having titled her dogs in a variety of sports, including competitive Obedience, and having taken in dogs from rescue situations and continuing to work as a Behaviorist for a variety of rescue charities, Debbi is well placed to ensure that your dog is met with the same kindness, consistency and methods which contribute to success.
