OLD Real Life Basic Manners (Over 4 months)

Outdoor Class 1'You can't teach an old dog new tricks' is thankfully not true! Older dogs can be very receptive to training when we find what motivates them and makes them tick.
With lots of hardwork, patience and consistency, an older dog starting training can go on to become an obedience star (look at Tina and her rescue dog Chandy who made it far in Britains Got Talent!) 
We usually run the course as a series of 121 sessions, however if your dog is aged 4-7months you may be offered space on a class where available. Dogs over 7 months have more specific needs than puppies so they benefit from learning in a 121 environment rather than a group class. 
Once you have mastered the basics then your trainer will advise on the best group class to join. This is usually either our Advanced Puppy Course or the Kennel Club Good Citizen Award.
