Our Junior/Beginners course is primarily aimed at adolescent dogs. Puppies enter their Junior or 'adolescent' phase at around 6 months of age. You may notice they become less interested in you and more interested in their surroundings. What was once a perfect puppy can quickly become a problem dog. This class is also suitable for older dogs with training issues or those just starting out. 

Your young dog...

Adolescence refers to the time between puppyhood and sexual/social maturity. This can be between 6 months and 3 years depending on the size and breed of dog.

For male dogs testosterone production can increase dramatically, resulting in difficult times for both the dog and owner. Likewise, females may act differently around the time of their first season. It can be difficult for them to concentrate and focus on what you are asking. 

Castration or spaying is often suggested at this point to 'calm' the behaviour. This is often not that case and in some situations can make things worse, either way it is not simple quick fix. 

 

We find that, more often than not, issues that were not a problem with a small, lightweight puppy, become a major issue as a dog reaches adolescence and is more confident. They can become impulsive, develop selective hearing and generally become more interested in their surroundings, and other dogs.

Private Training

Private lessons are on a one-to-one basis and involve you, your dog and our trainer. 

During the first assessment session we will discuss any questions you may have about your dog, find out what you enjoy doing with your them  and what you would like to achieve or improve on. The lessons are then tailored accordingly.

These sessions will offer homework and a variety of tips and so you can continue your training away from 'school' and into

a real life environment.  

​Generally these sessions are aimed at exercises such as walking nicely on a leash, manners, impulse control  and recall.  They will help you to make a great start to developing a well balanced adult dog.and saying goodbye to unwanted behaviours. If your dog is reactive and/or has shown signs of aggression towards other dogs or people; please see our Behavioural Help page. 

 

Following your initial session of 45 minutes we offer  half hour follow up sessions

Junior/Beginner Training Classes

 

This class is offered as a step up from puppy training and can  help dogs and owners deal with and overcome issues during adolescence. 

In these sessions we cover walking on a loose leash, working with distractions, manners and basic obedience (sit, stay and recall). We also aim to promote and reward calm, quiet behaviour around distractions. 

 

Central Bark Junior/Beginner class offers the opportunity to rectify behaviours such as jumping up, pulling on the leash and running off. We train indoors and outside (weather permitting) to ensure your dog generalises his/her learning and can apply it in real life situations. 

 

Our classes are kept to a maximum of 8 attendees small to ensure you and your dog gets individual attention.

 

Running for one hour per week for 6 consecutive weeks, our classes provide a relaxed, stress free environment for you to learn with your dog.
