Classes

At Wiggly Dog training

  • We don’t hold “traditional” dog training classes - you won’t see a circle of dogs walking round with the handlers shouting “WALKIES!”
  • We allow clickers to be used in class
  • Each week handlers are given handouts that cover what has been taught that week - allowing you to practice at home with the same methods as used in class
  • Classes are limited to a maximum of 8 to 10 dogs.

This provides a number of benefits

  1. The trainer can give more attention to each dog and handler
  2. Your dog won’t find the number of dogs in the class overwhelming
  3. Classes are big enough to give you and your dog a bit of rest between exercises
  4. It is easier to ask questions and the trainer has more time to answer

Buying a puppy is a very big decision, but have you considered all aspects of buying and owning a dog? This one hour seminar takes you through choosing the breed of dog that suits your lifestyle, to choosing a breeder. It also covers issues such as socialising your new puppy, initial training, how big your dog will grow and how much exercise he will need and how much he will cost to feed, then go on to diverse topics such as taking your dog abroad and choosing boarding kennels. When booking please let us know what type of dog you are considering
