RECALL & LOOSE LEAD

£72.00 for the 4 week course

This highly requested class aims to teach your dog two of the most important lessons you can give them. These two subjects go hand in hand together and to achieve one you must have the other.

Does your dog walk nicely on a loose lead or do they pull you down the road.

Come and teach them how to focus on you and walk beside you in a happy and positive way building a great relationship between you both.

Does your dog come back when off lead? Are other dogs and people more interesting?
If you cannot call your dog back to you instantly you DO NOT have full control.
This workshop is aimed at giving you a reliable recall even when the going gets tough! 

Starting at the beginning we will shape your recall word to be the ultimate rewarding experience for your dog, we will then start to add in the distractions, diversions and real life situations to ensure you are confident and your dog totally understands what is expected of them.

AGILITY

£60.00 for the 4 week course

Agility is action packed, roller coaster excitement for you and your dog. Comprising of various obstacles to run through, step over, and weave in and out of. Great for Body coordination and teaching directions. Agility is great fun and a perfect way to bond with your dog (and get fit!).

HOOPERS

£120.00 for the 8 week course

Hoopers is a relatively new sport that has started to spread from America, into Europe and now to the UK shores here in Enfield. It takes a lot of basics from Agility but removes the need for jumps or contact equipment and replaces them with hooped gates for the dog to run through so there is minimum impact on your dog’s limbs. This makes it ideal for any type of dog to take part in, from puppies who will want to learn Agility when they are old enough, up to retired agility dogs, and dogs returning from injury. It focuses on learning distance control and directional commands, hoops, tunnels and send arounds. This is a sport that is set to make Agility more accessible to all dogs no matter their age or breed. Our 8 week courses help your dogs work towards either the beginner, or silver Hoopers awards.

SCENT WORK
