Training Classes

At Standish Dog Trainer I offer classes that will safely socialise your puppy and train obedience & companion dog skills that are relevant to the world that we are asking our dogs to live in. I have created a structured timetable that starts by teaching foundation skills and then allows progression, adding more advanced training as your dog learns and becomes more confident.

Please note that training classes are not suitable for  fearful dogs or dogs that bark at other dogs or people, these dogs need to be supported using 1-2-1 training.
All puppies and dogs must be fully vaccinated in order to attend our training courses.

Twinkle Stars will suit puppies from 12 weeks old, up to being 20 weeks old when starting. The class runs on a Friday evening at 6.45pm and is at The Methodist Church Hall in Standish. Each course is 5 weeks long, each lesson is 45 minutes long.
This class is not suitable for dogs older than 20 weeks old at the start date. 
In this class dogs are taught how to settle and focus on their owners. I teach recall foundations, how to socialise your pup safely. Iteach good food manners, how to wait, loose lead walking, basic positions like sit and down,  I also encourage controlled play and grooming and handling skills.

Mega Stars is the class for all puppies who are aged between 11 weeks and 12 months old. So provided your pup is fully vaccinated and is under a year old, it will suit you.
This class always takes place atThe Methodist Church Hall in Standish and courses run on Fridays at 5.45pm. Each course is 5 weeks long, each lesson is 45 minutes long.
There are a core skill set of exercises, all designed to help with impulse control, manners, ease of understanding each other, to help you be in control of your dog while having a fun, relaxed time together.  We look at walking on a loose lead together, polite meet and greet behaviour, recall skills, dogs concentrating on their handlers, basic positions and activtites like waiting and leaving.
Each week I will add onto the skills, to ask more of your dog, to increase their ability.
