On Track Dog Training School

So what will your dog learn?

Beginner Classes

We have introduced a new system which we found to be particularly effective.Every dog attends an introductory session first. It is a very intense session where we can assess the needs of the owner and dog  so that when they join the classes they can be monitored and taught at their particular level. Also in the introductory session we look at safe introductions to strange dogs and how to behave in the company of other dogs which prepares the new dog for working in a class of dogs.  The owners are introduced to the training techniques of a reward-based training method. They will be taught how to mark the correct behaviour and how to reward correctly. The cost is £35 for the Introductory Session then just £5 a night thereafter when the puppy comes to classes.

Some of the exercises taught in the beginner class: -

Throughout the training the emphasis is always on promoting good socialisation with people, dogs and novel situations.

Intermediate Classes

When the young dog is ready he will progress to an intermediate class. The school has listed status with the Kennel Club and is therefore entitled to run the Good Citizen Scheme. There are three awards to work through and when each dog is proficient in all the exercises the owner will be invited to attend a test night where an outside examiner will come and test the dogs. Below is a description of each the exercises in each award. The cost of these classes is £5 per night.

Bronze Award

Silver Award

Gold Award

Advanced Class

These dogs have proved themselves to be extremely well trained companions so now new challenges are set. Handlers are introduced to more advanced training skills and dogs can be taught scenting exercises, targeting exercises and foundation work for competition exercises. The work is very varied and great fun and still only £5 a training session!

Opening times

School Closure

The school will be closed for two weeks over the firework period - 28th October till 11th November, however fireworks are already being let off by the usual uncaring idiots.

FIREWORKS

Most dogs are fearful of fireworks and sometimes the signs are very subtle. If your dog barks at the fireworks he is sounding the alarm and calling for back up. Please give training a miss and come back the week commnecing 11th November when public sales have stopped and there should no longer be any fireworks
