During your training you will be amazed, how much your puppy learns and how much fun you both can have.

You would start at the level of Elementary Beginners and work your way up to the difficult “C” class – And what seems impossible now, might not in a year or two.

Different trainers and handlers find different techniques work for them, so within the limits of what we are teaching, you might find different methods are given to you from trainer to trainer. Find what works for you and use it, there is no right and wrong method, and methods do change, as people come up with new ideas that work.

Always end each exercise on a positive note, if you dog does what you wanted it to do, reward it and do not do it again at that point in time, because next time it more then likely will fail, and the failure is what the dog will remember.

If a dog runs away and comes back – reward it – you see it running away, but the dog sees it as “I came back to you – so reward!

If dog not only listens to your voice, but also to your eyes and body language.

To avoid slipping and falling we suggest you wear takkies or rubber soled shoes, not flip-flops.
