Basics for Beginners Training

Adult Dog Training East Kirkby, Spilsby, Lincolnshire

Basics for Beginners training is great for dogs over 6 months old that have never had formal training or for owners of young rehomed/rescued dogs

It's important that training is fun for both of you, helping to build the bond and focus between you and your dog at every stage. Seeing a dog progress and respond to positive training is a very rewarding experience. In the first five few sessions you will start to learn how to get the most from your dog. Fun and Focus is the key!

You'll begin to understand just how much your dog is capable of learning. Watching and understanding your dog’s behaviour is also a key part of each training session.

Peta 4 Dogs is here to help you, using positive, effective and easy-to-understand, fun training methods.
