Our Puppy to Novice Classes are new for the latter part of 2015 and is already a hit!
Running both puppy and novice classes, we found that there became a stage where dogs were a little to old and advanced for a puppy class but not quite ready to join a novice class which would be a little overwhelming for both dog and handler.
As a result we started a Puppy to Novice Class aimed at introducing skills that will allow the dog to develop enough to be able to join a novice class. This is usually a good class to join if you have an older puppy that hasn’t done any form of Gundog training as a youngster.
- Sit or stop whistle
- Marked retrieves
- Memory retrieves
- Introduction of shot
- Working around other dogs
- Pulling on a lead
- Patience training
- Introduction to steadiness training
If you have an older dog that you’d like to try Gundog training with, then this also makes a good introductory class for you. Looking at new skills and introductions to some of the advanced skills you will have later in your dogs training, this is a fun class to get you going.
