Dog Training

The AWL conducts 'Mutts with Manners' Dog behaviour and training classes for people who have a puppy or adult dog. These classes are suitable for improving the relationship with both new or existing dog(s) in your family.

Qualified instructors help new owners train their puppy or dog using reward-based techniques. We have found that positive reinforcement methods really work and help to build a positive relationship between owner and dog.

We have lots of tips and fast facts to help you look after your pet and live happily with them. Whether it's a barking dog, house training a kitten or general hints for your new puppy, we have plenty of information to help you.

See below for more information and to book the various classes that we offer

We will contact you, to confirm your place and the class time, a week before the course starts.

This introduction to dog training and behaviour class is held for humans only and runs for 2 hours. This workshop runs fortnightly on Saturday from 9am to 11am. This workshop is a prerequisite for any of our classes or can be a stand alone class.

Please note: All dogs must be up to date with C5 vaccinations

After attending the Doggy Toolbox you will be able to particpate in six 45 minute group sessions and one 30 minute private lesson with your dog.

Puppy Manners is suitable for a new family member or older one needing some manners. The Puppy Manners program is designed to be appropriate for puppies between 4 and 12 months of age. This course may also be useful for older pups or rescued/adopted older dogs that need a fresh start and a good solid foundation to gain social and life skills. You can then graduate to Mutts with Manners

Those with prior learning start in Mutts with Manners. This program builds on basic manners and care and specifically targets skills to develop at home, out in public and during play and fitness activities.
