NEW COURSE AVAILABLE

Posted on 3 October, 2018 at 12:20 Comments comments (0)
New Course Planned
I have been asked by a couple of clients recently who have been through the WildDogz program for a Refresher Course or similar.
As I have been thinking about this for some time now, I have decided to act on this and am now planning to establish this additional course to my current portfolio.
My thought is to take "key elements" from the 3-primary courses (puppy, intermediate & advanced) and to put together a casual and fun course to work on improving these key elements with added distractions, the other attendees. This course will also allow for bespoke challenges (excluding aggressive behaviours).
A 4-week (possibly 6-week, TBC) Course of 1-hour sessions held in the barn on a Tuesday evening (18:30~19:30), hopefully to start on October 30th.
Would this be of interest to you? If so, please get in touch to confirm suitability & availability asap.
As with all our courses, a maximum of 8-attendees so places are limited.
This course is only suitable for dogs that have achieved at least an intermediate level of training previously. For all other cases you should consider our Puppy Socialisation & Lifeskills, Intermediate Improvers or Advanced Social Skills courses. If in doubt, please call to discuss.

NEW & Coming Soon to WildDogz

A selection of two-hour bespoke Improvers Workshops intended to help improve targeted areas of your dogs behaviour.
Operated in small groups of 8-attendees maximum in a public environment for maximum benefit, the first two workshops planned will cover the following:
  • Lead-Manners - this will include an introduction, social skills opportunities, equipment check followed by a lengthy on-lead walk exposing the dogs to a variety of differing stimulants concluded with a final session debrief and Q & A session. An opportunity to try and or purchase different equipment will be available.

  • Recall - this will include an introduction, a short walk to the first session location where using a variety of differing equipment we shall conduct individual and group recalls before moving on to a second location following a 15-minute lead-walk to conduct the second recall session. This is concluded by a 15-minute lead-walk back to the assembly point. An opportunity to try and purchase different equipment will be available.

You are welcome to attend both workshops but please note, these workshops are behaviour targeted and only the intended discipline will be covered.
If you have other issues you would like to discuss, please call for details of our 1:2:1 training solutions.

The Improver Course is a 5 or 10-session program available to anyone whose puppy or dog has had at least some basic training but needs more to continue to develop to a satisfactory standard.

Additionally, it is a great follow on for our clients to have attended the Puppy Foundation Course and Advanced Social Skills Course as it provides additional real-life practice under supervision and in a stimulating environment.
