Terrific Teen’s / Life Skills – September 2023

As your puppy reaches adolescence (The terrible two’s!) you may find that they suddenly change overnight, stop listening,  and their recall is non existent when they see another person or dog. It’s not you, it’s part of their development. It is essential to ensure consistency in your training to achieve a reliable recall, nice loose lead walking and build self-control to help them think before they act.

If you have rescued a dog, your dog has inherited some habits since lockdown or you now want to build upon your previous training then this course is for you. A trained dog is a happy dog.

At Callander K9 we offer small group classes of 5-6 dogs for 6 weeks.  We welcome the whole family to come along. Having consistency with every family member will ensure your dog knows exactly what is expected of him/her.

Our training is outdoors in a fully secure training field. We prefer to train outdoors as it’s real life! Your dog will find outside much more difficult to concentrate and to choose YOU over the distractions, so from day one we set them up for success. We supply your raised bed, water / water bowl, sanitizer and long leads where required.

We pride ourselves on learning through play, finding ‘their’ reward & keeping up to date with the most scientific research. You don’t need to spend hours a week training. By playing short games we will not only cover the course below, we will help build an unbreakable bond between you.
