Foundation group class

At Nosey Barker our priority is to coach you to train your dog in the areas important to you so that you can enjoy your lives together. Maybe you have just finished Puppy School or starting out on your training journey, either way, our group classes are perfect for you and your dog.

Whether you attended our Puppy School and are looking for the next stage, are a beginner or are new to Nosey Barker, we are excited to welcome you to our Foundation group classes.

Our highly qualified and experienced trainers are able to train your best friend on Nosey Barker’s training awards!

In small groups of no more than 8, we can give you and your developing dog the skills you both need to have a long and happy life together.

We cover a variety of different skills to help your dog focus on you, including:

Walking nicely on lead over a variety of distractions

Recalling when asked over a variety of distractions

Following instructions when cued

Fostering the relationship between you and your dog

Real-life transferable skills

A trick here and there for fun!

You can also enjoy:

Rolling schedule giving you the flexibility to join at a time convenient to you.

Choose the first day you would like to attend and then choose 5 more dates from the calendar that appear highlighted.

Upon successful completion you will receive a rosette and certificate to show off just how clever your best friend is.

As with all our training, we look to foster a positive relationship between you and your dog, using kind, science-based techniques, so that you can enjoy a magical lifelong bond.

Don’t know where we would be without these guys. The very first hour with these guys we have found invaluable and every hour since. Me and my Pooch love the training, we are not fast learners, not a problem for Nosey Barker. Could not recommend highly enough.

Frank & I had a great 6 weeks learning so much. I truly learnt a lot about understanding my puppy and their advice has been invaluable. Kim and her team have excellent advice and tips on teaching our puppies how to behave and trained in a fun environment. The training area is also great, safe and lots of room for the puppies to safely explore. If you need to train your puppy Nosey barker is the place to go

From day one my Journey with Nosey Barker was booked, all ready for my bundle of fluff to arrive. It was the best thing I’ve every done not only for George but for me too. Being a puppy mum isn’t easy to say the least, however the Nosey Barker Team have been with me all they way. George has passed puppy school and were looking forward to more learning with his foundation course. I couldn’t recommend them enough. x T
