During many exercises and learning games your dog will develop his ability of searching and signaling or retrieving the found item or substance.
You will learn many interesting activities in which your dog will be able to use his natural search instinct during walks and entertain each other at home.
During the sessions we will show and explain you and help you to teach your dog to:
- Search for and Retrieve Items; e.g. your lost key
- Signal Substances such as Tea, Vanilla, etc.
- Search and Signal People
You will work with your dog in a friendly, relaxed environment among people equally keen on enjoying training their dog.
There are many ways to train a dog to retrieve and we use the most advanced, scientifically proven, kind and effective, training, handling, and communication techniques such as Capturing, Shaping, Prompting and Clicker Training.
These classes are suitable for dogs older than 5 months.
Children are most welcome to accompany their parents but please make sure it is always only one person training the puppy at a time to avoid confusion.
There will be a maximum of 5 dogs in each class to ensure quality of training.
What to bring:
Your dog should wear preferably a harness or a plain collar, please no choke collars!
Please bring some of your dog’s normal food as well as some tasty treats with you.
Also bring your dog’s bed or a blanket with you to help your dog relax and settle in the class
