6-week group classes:
We run 6-week group courses at £75 per course and have the above levels to available for you and your puppy/dog to attend.
Some of you will only do a puppy class while
Others- will go to the end and its all up to you
We ask customers to bring suitable leads, tasty treats for dogs (feed only half of your dog's breakfast or dinner on the day of the training, so they not over-excited if they hungry or not motivated if they fed too much)
-Use those tasty treats for training only so your dog wants to work as they can get bored of the same thing over and over again. We usually use: chicken, cocktail sausages, cheese, ham or even puppy treats from the shop, just make sure your puppy really likes them
I always say to owners: if you go to work- you expect to get paid. If you do over time- you expect more money. If you get the same amount as if you do normal hours- you won't do over time.
If you want your puppy to work hard and learn quickly- reward them with good pay- good tasty treats!
Please makes sure your dog is microchipped & wears an I.D tag (owners name, address, phone number- no dog name) as per British Law- you have to have both!
At Top Dog Training School you will get all the information you need to train your puppy or dog in a fun, enjoyable, positive, family-like environment.
