Puppy Improvers (option to undertake Grade 1) - Saturday 8th September 10.45

100.00

This class is open to all graduates of Widget's puppy lifeskills class and any adolescent graduates which are comfortable working in close contact with unfamiliar dogs.  (New adolescent dogs to Widget's Farm should join our "Adolescent Skills" class first)

The Puppy Improvers course allows owners to both develop existing skills as well as learning lots of new behaviours to help with adolescence. There will also be the option to work towards their Widget's Farm Grade 1 Rosette and cover training such as self control around strangers / dogs, heelwork, retreives, trick training sit stays, recalls, scentwork and more. The calm outdoor classes continue to give each dog the opportunity to train around other dogs in a safe and secure environment, and owners can choose whether to undertake the relaxed grade 1 assessment at the end of each course.

Every month there will also be the opportunity to join a field trip for £10. This will enable owners to gain feedback on their skills in real life situations.

Dogs and owners also learn handling skills important for the adolescent stage and how to deal with common problems. 

Additional adolescent skills...

•             Safe dog–dog interactions

•             Improving attention on owners around varied distractions

•             Watching for, and responding to, nervous behaviours

•             Reducing frustration and improving self-control

•             Training under distraction.

•             Training games and more…

The class is open to any young dog between 5 and 24 months, who has attended the Widget's Farm puppy lifeskills class.
