Dog training classes in Hercules Road, London SE1.
Classes run on Sundays at 10am in the sports area next to the Pineapple public house. Classes are £10 but you are welcome to come and sample a class for free.

The classes focus on training your dog to be a perfect companion who is welcome anywhere. We start with basics like ‘sit’, ‘leave it’ and recall using the same methods used to train zoo animals, sea mammals and four-legged Hollywood stars – treats, toys and fun (otherwise known as operant and classical conditioning). Bring lots of tiny treats and a toy your dog loves. These are the kinds of things dogs find rewarding, they are used to ‘pay’ your dog for doing a good job – no-one likes to work for free!

In the coming months I will add introductory exercises leading to dog-sports such as fun agility, rally-obedience and heelwork to music.

    Hello, Total Recall. Are your classes still running? You’ve been recommended you to me and I have a new rescue dog who needs a little training.

      Hi Becky,
      Yes the classes are still running at 10am on Sunday mornings. If you wandered into the park yesterday you may have noticed a distinct absence of dog training as I was having a short holiday in Devon. The chances of that happening again any time soon are so unlikely that you’ll probably find me in the park come rain or snow for the next year or so! Come along next Sunday for a free lesson to see if you enjoy it. Bring some small treats that your dog enjoys and maybe a toy.

        Hi
        Are you classes suitable for a 10 week old puppy

      • malable says:

        Hi Carol. Yes that’s fine. The way the skills are taught makes it suitable for dogs of all ages. There is a class this Sunday at 10am, just brings some tiny treats that your dog will enjoy.

    Hi, is there a class this Sunday 31st of July? Where exactly shall we go to meet you? We have a two year old French Bulldog who was much better behaved when he was a puppy and started misbehaving and stopped listening very well. We were hoping to join the classes going forward.

    • malable says:

      Hi Marie.
      There will be a class this Sunday morning. They are held in the sports area on Hercules Road near the Pineapple pub – an approximate postcode is SE1 7DD. Meet just before 10am and we can work on basic dog behaviours. Bring some small treats that your dog enjoys.

    Hi there is this training still on? I would like to come along with my puppy! thanks.

  10. Keeley says:

    Hi,

    I have rehomed an American bulldog, he know the basics but he needs lots of training in other areas.
    Do you do introductions to other dogs as well? He gets over excited when seeing another dog and will pull to get to them.

    Thanks
