Training really can be the most fun and rewarding part of owning a dog. As soon as you bring your new furry friend home, training needs to be high on your list of priorities.
You may have heard the saying, ‘you can’t teach an old dog new tricks’. However, training classes are available for every age and ability are all welcomed. Training classes are a great opportunity to meet like-minded people who all share in a common aim – to have well-behaved dogs who are a pleasure to own.
A training class is not there to train your dog. Its purpose is to teach you to train your dog, so your commitment extends beyond just turning up for classes. You’ll need to be committed to training your own dog for short sessions (five minutes) several times a day. This little bit of training every day will be repaid with a lifetime of living with a well-behaved dog. You will also learn to avoid problems before they begin, as well as receive help to overcome any that you already have with your dog.
