At Country Boarding for Cats and Dogs our staff are experts in dog behaviour and care enabling them transfer their knowledge to you. Our puppy training classes in North Hertfordshire will not only teach your puppy basic obedience training such as sit, lie down, recall and heel walking, but common behavioural problems will also be discussed with theoretical and practical advice will be given.
Spending the time to educate your puppy will set them up for life, and a trained dog is safer and better behaved. Positive training methods will be used, using food treats and toys and verbal praise.
We place great emphasis on socialisation and this will occur every week. Topics such as nutrition, toileting and puppy proofing your house will be covered. The sessions will be interactive and fun, leading to a rewarding experience for both you and your puppy.
Hazel is our class instructor of 30 year’s experience training all breeds. She is a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT 00218) and also holds a post graduate diploma in Companion Animal Behaviour Counselling from Southampton University.
She says, “I use common sense, reward based training and kind, fair and effective methods. Explanation of the what, why and how of what is being taught is key. My emphasis is on ensuring that each handler/dog partnership can achieve their objectives by tailoring advice where required. I can also deliver clicker training when requested.”
