Sniff, Tug & Twist
Would you like to have fun with your energetic dog whilst learning something new?
Our Sniff, Tug & Twist course combines 3 classes in 1. You will learn the foundations of Scent Detection, Interactive Play and Trick Training, all activities are fun, mentally stimulating and suitable for dogs of all ages and abilities, even those who haven't trained before!
These are challenging, but fun, activities in which the dogs learn to channel their energy and focus onto learning something appropriate, which in turn will develop confidence and promote calmness. We work on increasing mental stimulation through learning new tricks, promoting calmness and focus through scent detection and discovering the power of interactive play. As well as providing physical and mental exercise for your dog, these activities will also keep them fit, healthy and a little calmer.
The course is suitable for mixed abilities and will be tailored to ensure you are working at the level appropriate to your dog. Basic obedience is an advantage but not neccessary to enjoy the course. Our classes are fun and non-competitive.
Our course will include;
- Scent pairing
- Learning a passive indication
- Various scent searches
- Learning how to play
- A drop (let go of toy)
- Focus energy on a toy
- Foundations of retrieve
- Switching from high to low energy
- How to shape and capture behaviours
- Foundations of various tricks, e.g. spin, bow, roll-over, hi-5
- Social Manners - how to greet and interact with dogs appropriately
Our classes are relaxed, informative and fun with an 'ask the trainer' tea break. A maximum of 6 dogs per class we ensure dogs and owners have space and time to progress.
Our classes are held outside at our private training field at Moat Farm in Stoke Mandeville.
If our class days/times don't suit we offer a variety of other services including Courses, Workshops, 121 training and a Training SOS phone/skype support call
