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.
