Puppy Socialisation Parties, Group Classes and 1-to-1 Training for happy dogs and proud owners
At Rags & Bert’s we are pleased to offer a variety of different training and socialisation options for puppies and older dogs. Whether you're bringing a new puppy into your family and need guidance on how to help them to be a happy well-balanced dog, or whether your existing dog needs a helping hand or a refresher to grasp particular training aspects, we offer training to suit your needs.
Delivered by our highly qualified and experienced dog trainers and behaviourists, your best friend is in good hands.
Puppy Socialisation Parties - bring your puppy to learn and play!
Our Puppy Socialisation Parties run every Monday from 1.15-2.15pm and Fridays from 1-2pm. Apart from enjoying meeting other puppies for a play date, your puppy will also:-
- Learn to interact with other dogs of a similar age
- Develop their play style
- Benefit from being in a new environment, with new smells, new surfaces and new toys
- Meet our expert hooman team to make future daycare visits easy and seamless
- Develop their canine social skills with the help of our team
- Become more confident and well rounded
All fully supervised by our team who are highly skilled in canine socialization. Pre-booking is essential as numbers are limited. The cost is £10 payable in advance.
Individual confidence-building training sessions
We offer one-on-one sessions with Rags & Bert's resident animal behaviourist, Tom Ford. Confidence building is helpful for dogs that are nervous of new people, new dogs and new environments. We'll work one-on-one with your dog to build their confidence and trust in strangers and towards other dogs.
A 30 minute session costs £20.
These are perfect for day care dogs and hotel residents. Why not let your four-legged friend make the most of their stay with a bit of refresher behaviour training and to build up their confidence and social skills.
Tom has a BSc Honours: Applied Animal Behaviour and Training and a National Diploma: Animal Management. He has also qualified in Canine First Aid & CPR and Veterinary Medicine safe use and handling (NPTC).
