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.
