Fun Tricks & Doggy Dancing
Naturally Pets Fun Agility
A purpose-built doggy activity course centred around mixing obedience with fun obstacles. You and your dog work as a team to go round a course consisting of various obstacles. Aimed at developing the ‘3 c’s’ – confidence, co-ordination and communication! Suitable for all ages.
Done the basics, looking for more? Perhaps your pooch dreams of stardom? Put your dog’s creativity to good use with reward-based Animal Acting tricks! With tricks for all levels, and focus on developing distance control (so you can be out of the shot when filming!), this is a great lesson for those seeking a little more.
A chance for your dog to explore his ‘wild side’ and put his nose to good use finding treats and rewards in the school, fields and woods at our centre. In this fun class we look at distinguishing between scents, searching for treats or objects and following trails. These activities are fun and stimulating for all types of dog!
A great activity for all types of dog (and owner!). The focus of this class is on exploring your dog’s creativity and stimulating their mind in a very fun and relaxed environment. Come along and learn some simple doggy dancing & trick exercises- you’ll be creating your own routines in no time!
A great opportunity to get out and about for some socialisation with your dog, safe in the knowledge that a degree qualified trainer and behaviourist is with you! We usually meet somewhere local and have some fun with our dogs in a real life scenario (your dog may behave perfectly in classes- but will they on a walk with other dogs and people??). We usually do some bits of training throughout the walk and aim to get as many of the dogs going off lead together as possible.
Our own low-impact agility classes are fun, relaxed and suitable for all abilities! Any dog can participate (we have a range from Chihuahuas to Leonbergers, teenagers to veterans!) but there are some restrictions for younger dogs on using the high equipment.
Agility is a great way to strengthen the bond between you and your dog, provides outlets for bored dogs (and owners!) and helps with general obedience such as recall! For the more competitively minded, we hold monthly competitions and an annual Championship for the winners at our September Agility Show.
Up to 6 classes may be chosen from our fun range of classes and activities including Naturally Pets Fun Agility, Family PETS, Supadogs Acting, Scenting Challenges, Trick Training and Group Walks.
A training class with a little bit of everything! We look at some basic obedience work such as sit/down/stand, heelwork, stays and so on but also some useful things for everyday life including handling, trust exercises and teaching patience. This class covers the things that all good dogs should know!
A training class which focuses on outdoor behaviours. The first half of the class focuses on lead walking tips and exercises including heelwork, getting and maintaining your dog’s attention, gateway procedures and so on. The second half of the class focuses on recalls and we have a secure area in which we can practice this off-lead.
One of our most popular and important training classes! We look at how to greet other dogs appropriately, being calm around other dogs, the ‘leave it’ command and building trust and confidence. The last part of the class consists of some fully supervised off-lead play, during which we practice recalling dogs out of play (one of the most difficult challenges owner’s face!) and develop your understanding of doggy body language and social behaviour
A training class for those looking to challenge their dogs and improve their overall control! We look at some more difficult exercises including a lot of distance control and off-lead heelwork.
Up to 6 classes which may be from the activity list AND from our list of reward-based training classes, covering all the basics every good pet should know. Classes include Basic Training, Walkies Training, Socialisation & Intermediate Training.
