Adolescent and Adult Dogs (pet gun dog training)

My (Chris Rose’s) dog training classes are an effective 4 week course in learning to have fun with either your pet gun dog when starting out in obedience training, or that you did attend some form of dog training classes in Northampton and want to further your dogs training. All dog breeds can attend these classes.

This course doesn’t just provide the foundation to gaining ideas on how to have fun on your walk with your dog, like retrieving balls etc. I will also provide you training on recall and walking to heel off lead too. Full details below on course content.

How I train dogs in the class is through patience, fun, repetition and consistency, and by using dogs attending the class to demonstrate my training methods to help owners reach their goals,

  • Dog must have suitable collar, lead or other setup with ID tag (No flexi leads)
  • Handler provides suitable food treats and dog safe toy
  • Handler to provide poop bags
  • Handler to provide vaccination records
