Have you just brought your puppy home or are you in the midst of battling through adolescence with your young Labrador, Spaniel, Vizsla, Pointer, or any of the "doodle" or "poo" mixes? Then this is the course for you! You will soon realise (if you haven't already!) that your young high-energy dog needs more than many other breeds. Raising them in a pet home and walking in the countryside can be challenging which is why my outdoor classes are designed specifically for Gundog breeds in pet homes. This 7-week course will help you to gain a better understanding of what your dog is hardwired to do, and how to meet their needs and harness their natural instincts. You will learn how to teach essential life skills needed to cope with the demands and challenges of daily life, through fun training games and activities, whilst supporting you through the challenging adolescent stage. Your pet Gundog's natural instincts are not something they will grow out of, they will only get stronger. The training activities have a huge emphasis on teaching you different strategies to manage over-arousal, and develop connection and self-control outside around the distractions of other dogs and people, helping you towards more engaging and enjoyable walks both on and off lead. Group sessions are for you, the human, to learn and practice new skills so that you can make progress between sessions.
