New Puppy Playgroup at Peatling Parva

When your puppy is young they need to have as many good experiences with a wide variety of people, animals and different situations as possible.

We are offering puppy playgroup sessions at Peatling Parva starting on 11th April.  These sessions cost £8.00 for a 45 minute session but they are FREE if you sign up to our puppy class on Friday evenings at Walcote.

We are offering puppy parties at Peatling Parva on a Thursday evening at 5.45 starting after Easter.

During these sessions your puppy will be exposed to new things.  We will show you how to introduce your puppy to something if he is not sure.  We will have a variety of games to play with your puppy and we can show you how to do puppy massage.

These session will be aimed at showing you how to have a good time with your puppy rather than structured training, but there will be 2 qualified trainers on hand to answer your questions.

Introduction to Scentwork – 14th February

We are holding an introduction to scentwork at Walcote Memorial Hall on 14th February.

This is intended  for people with little or no experience of scentwork.

Scentwork is a form of dog training that is often very rewarding for dogs.  With ScentworkUK you and your dog can progress through different levels.

We will learn the basics of scentwork, we will teach your dog to use his nose and then look for a specific scent.

This is excellent mental stimulation for most dogs and results in a calm, tired dog.  So why not give it a go?

The training class starts at 7.00pm,

We also run regualar scent classes on a Tuesday at Cotesbach or a Thursday at Peatling Parva.

We also run dog training classes near Lutterworth and puppy class.

Date for the next Dog and Puppy Training Classes

We are already taking enrolments for our next session of dog training and puppy training classes which begin in February.

Our training classes are convenient for the Lutterworth/Rugby/Countesthorpe areas.

Dates for the next classes are:

  • Cotesbach (Tuesday evenings)  27th February
  • Walcote (Friday evenings)  23rd February
  • Peatling Parva (Thursdays once a fortnight)  March 22nd

All of our classes are small so each dog or puppy has individual attention.  Qualified APDT instructor.

We aim to make our classes a bit different from many other training classes.

Our puppy training is aimed at problem prevention.  Many of the problems seen in adult dogs start as a puppy.  We aim to give owners the skills to prevent these from developing.

 

Because our classes are small they do fill up quickly.
