This will be our first class outside with the puppies after the winter training in the hall and that also offers us new opportunities for training in a very natural way, this course focuses on very natural training in our fully fenced 2 acre paddock. The three main focuses for the groups will be Social, Lead training and coming to call, all with the distraction of each other. Week one: The class will begin by the cars; please leave your dog in the car while we have introductions and goal setting amongst the group. Train the dogs to calmly get out of the vehicle, safely and politely, to establish good behaviour from the first moments. Lead work training to the paddock, treating this as the start of any walk and again showing good behaviour before we arrive at the paddock More lead training around the paddock for the humans to feel at home Training for coming to call to the ability of the group with pointers on homework Training walk return to the car park Week two: Training walk to the paddock including short recalls In the paddock, social exercises focused on jumping up or how to train not to jump up!
