Clicker training classes
Want to try something fun while training your dog? Clicker training sessions are enjoyable bond-building classes for both dog and owner – suitable for all dogs older than seven months.
What is clicker training?
If you’ve ever heard of Ivan Pavlov, a Russian scientist credited with the theory of classic conditioning (and centrepiece of a very funny comedy routine by Eddie Izzard!), then you probably have some idea of clicker training.
Simply put, we work together with you to train your dog to respond to the noise of a clicker, teaching them lots of fun tricks alongside serious and potentially life-saving reactions such as immediately stopping on command.
Through clicker training you can strengthen your relationship with your pet and bring your interactions to a new level.
Does my dog need to be well trained before coming to clicker training?
No matter the level of your dog’s training, we can enhance it with the fun experience of clicker training.
If you believe your dog to be particularly unruly, however, please do contact us in advance to see if we can arrange an assessment and pre-training help. We are happy to work with dogs at any level of training, but as clicker training is a group session, it may be necessary to work on some basic behaviour in a one-to-one environment prior to joining.
What tricks do you teach?
Over a four-week course, we will teach your dog to advance from simple sitting and stopping on the trigger, through quick turns, roll-overs, walking backwards and ringing a bell, to advanced sequences that you might have seen in dog shows. If you’ve ever watched a dog navigate their way through an obstacle course with their owner offering encouragement alongside and thought ‘that’d be cool’ then this session is for you!
When are the clicker training sessions?
Hour-long sessions take place every Wednesday from 6:30 to 7:30 pm
(Next class Feb 27th to March 20th then, April 10th to 1st May).
How much are weeknight group dog-training classes?
Each four-week course is £80 inclusive (with a supplied clicker!).
Who is clicker training for?
Any dog over seven months is welcome to join our group clicker sessions on a Wednesday evening. As it is a group class, your dog must be up-to-date with all vaccinations and immunisations for the health and safety of everyone involved.
