Hi, I'm looking for a good dog training class, preferably not too far from S8.

I've heard about some ongoing dog training classes in Sheffield where you pay to join and then just pay for the weeks you go. This would be ideal as I work irregular shifts and am unlikely to be able to go every week. However I don't know where this dog training is? Does anyone know?

Just wanting general training, socialization etc.

Really would prefer something longer than 6/8 weeks or similar.

Thanks

Is it just 3 to pay when you turn up or is there a fee when you join?

just 3.00 when you turn up no joining fee. i think think puppy course has to be paid upfront (25 for the 8 week course) but other then the puppy one its 3.00 when you go

Thats really good, if your dog is young adult can you just turn up to start then?

Thanks for the info it is a bit of a trek for us but if we don't find anything nearer it may well be worth a try. Is the 8 week beginners course just for young puppies or is it for any dog that's not been to training classes before? Ours is 11 months but not been to classes before that we know of (rescue dog). How many dogs would you say there are normally in the class?

Hi, thanks for your message. It's more the dog socialization and working with distractions around that I'm keen on. Our dog is quite easy to train at home but mainly needs more practice whilst being around other people and dogs which is why I'm interested in taking her to classes

very wise then - it's always nice to see an owner that really seems to know what their pet needs, when it so often isn't so

Well, the discussion was quite nice but I don't believe one that. I mean, I believe that
pets are created on their own nature and naturally they are rapid to learn fast. You
I usually don't care about the proper training. But my Siberian Husky may more brilliant than
others.

Hi thanks, unfortunately we couldn't make it this week. I would like to bring her to the beginners course but I'm assuming it's 8 consecutive weeks rather than 8 weeks as and when you can get there. I can't make every Thursday and would miss quite a few so its a bit difficult really. I don't think she'd be ready for the advanced class as she hasn't got much focus when there's other people and dogs around. I'm not sure she'll listen at all at first..

Hi there,

My one year old Lakeland is a big fan of bolting...she is fine when we take her out to the Peaks and up to Wadsley Common but bolts down the road if the front door gets left open.

Would anyone be able to recommend a class that could help me address this?

Thanks,

Chess

Hi Chessy,

I'm happy to be proven wrong, but i haven't come across a group class that would deal with anything like that.

It is unfortunately one of those things that many owners reside to 'put up with' and make a point of not leaving doors open...

There is work you can do in terms of boundary training that should help, but i feel you'd be looking at a one to one session to deal with such an issue.

Is there any chance of posting a phone number for the classes please.
I have a 18 week old pup and would like to book in.
Thanks
