Dulwich nine week Outdoor Foundation course: The talk night will be on Thursday 5th November (via Skype at 7.00pm.)  Dogs will attend on Thursday 12th November Time: 12.15pm. The classes are an hour each week for eight weeks.  (Full) I  am waiting to hear about the re-opening of my Dulwich indoor venue for evening classes but that may not be for some time.

The Foundation courses and one to one training cover:

Lead work - teaching your dog to walk by your side without tension on the lead.

Recall-  teaching your dog to return when you call him/her.

Not jumping Up - if your dog jumps up on someone who is (for example) afraid of dogs or they are knocked over because of the dog jumping up at them, you could be prosecuted or worse still, your dog could be destroyed; so it is important to train your dog not to jump up - unless told to do so.     

Leave -    this could save your dog's life.      

Stay/Wait -  teaching your dog to remain in a "Sit" or a "Down".    

Play -   if you interact with your dog, you will have a better relationship with him/her and therefore a better chance of your dog listening to you.     

Diet -  we are what we eat and this applies to our dogs as well.  Understanding what your dog needs to eat to keep him/her healthy, happy and well behaved is another important aspect to consider because what we put into their bowls can affect them.       

Handling -  understand how to handle your dog so that he/she is comfortable when handled by you and the vet.  

The office will be closed from the 25th September until the 5th October. I will not be available to respond to phone, texts or email enquiries during that time so please contact me before or after those dates.  Thank you.

If your dog has behavioural problems other than basic training needs - I do not do behavioural consultations but can recommend two behaviourists.
