"My dog has great recall, except when there are other dogs around"
It's the most commonly cited phrase I hear when people are enquiring about joining us for training!
In our group classes, as well as following the week by week lesson plans for every day skills, we can also learn from each other and gain better understanding of different breed types with different characteristics to our own dogs so that we might more easily see how our dogs are communicating with each other, and at the same time, teach our dogs to remain calmly focused on us regardless of who and what else is going on around us.
For owners of more difficult dogs, especially the very shy and the very bouncy dogs a small group can also offer some support and solidarity in knowing that you aren't the only one having problems - we are not here to judge, we are here to help and helping owners and dogs overcome problems is what really makes the day!
Class sizes are kept to a maximum of 7 dogs to ensure that there is always enough space for everyone and lesson plans are tweaked to incorporate individual needs or problem areas.
