The world is a very exciting place for a puppy, full of fun things to interact with. For many the excitement of being in a class of other dogs and people leaves them struggling to concentrate and learn new exercises. Online puppy training helps you to create the perfect environment for your dog to learn.
Our course is for people who are serious about working on the training element of their dogs education – getting a dog who comes back every time when called, walks under control on the lead and all the other core exercises. This of course all comes with an element of fun too.
We will guide you on socialisation – meeting people and other dogs, but this isn’t the primary aim of the course. The private Facebook group gives you access to other owners on the course if you wish to organise play dates. Dog Owner Training School also offers group dog walks which are another opportunity to mix with new dogs and people. At the Dog Owner Training School learning starts off at home. Register for the online puppy training package and you will get a 6 week training programme to learn the skills to teach everything in the Kennel Club Puppy Foundation Award*. If you need to take longer to complete the programme that’s fine. You get access to the course materials for life.
*To achieve the Kennel Club Puppy Foundation Award you will need to book a 1-2-1 face to face session with Laura to demonstrate all the exercises held in Hawkhurst, Kent (Kennel Club requirements). A Kennel Club certificate and rosette will then be awarded. This session will incur an extra charge
With the 6 week online program you also get Dog Trainer In Your Pocket – our online support system. You pick a day and a frequency in which Laura, our trainer, will contact you by email, WhatsApp or phone. During this contact she will review your progress and offer feedback.
If you need further support, face to face 1-2-1 sessions can be booked with Laura for an additional charge. These take place in Hawkhurst, Kent.
