Foundation Puppy Course
Mon 06 Jan 2020FULL
- Mon 17 Feb 2020 (17, 24 Feb, 2, 9, 16, 23 Mar; Sun 8 Mar)
- Mon 30 Mar 2020 (30 Mar, 6, 13, 20 , 27 Apr, 04 May; Sun 19 Apr)
Monday evenings 18:45 to 19:45 at South Hykeham village hall (first evening 18:45 to 20:15 owners only), plus one Sunday 10:30 to 11:30 outside at Thurlby Moor venue.
What you can expect from our Foundation Puppy Course: Simple exercises with easy to understand explanations to make learning fun for both you and your puppy. We’ll cover all the basics you might expect – like training for sit, stay, and down; as well as how to teach your puppy to come to you when called, to walk calmly on a lead without pulling, to leave things they shouldn’t have, and to stop those annoying and frustrating behaviours like jumping up, barking for attention, and biting.
Puppy classes include: 1 x 1.5 hrs intro talk with owners only (on first evening); 5 x 1 hr indoor lessons at South Hykeham village hall; 1 x 1 hr outdoor lesson near Witham St Hughs; goodies from Fish4Dogs and Feelwells; full guidance notes and a clicker; certificate and rosette upon completion.
How old does your puppy need to be? Between 9 and 20 weeks of age at the start of a course, having had at least their first set of vaccinations.

Fed up of your dog not coming when you call? Arms being pulled out on walks? Does your dog seem more interested in everything else except you?! Let us help over 3 x 1.5 hr lessons at our secure, outdoor venue near Witham St Hughs. Book HERE
Beginners Fun Agility Course
- Starting Sunday 27 Oct 10:15 to 11:15
Our 5 week fun activity course uses agility equipment to help build your dog’s confidence and develop focus on you, as well as mentally tiring your dog out! Young dogs under 12 months can join in too – we’ll ensure activities are tailored to protect their growing joints. Book HERE
Fun Agility (previous clients)
Once you’ve completed our Beginners Agility Course, you’ll probably want to keep up with the fun! You can purchase a Follow-On Agility Package which pays for 5 sessions and can be used on any Sundays you wish to attend (each attendance must be booked in advance and is limited to 6 dogs). Book HERE
Getting a puppy? Our Pre-Puppy Advice service will help equip you with the knowledge and peace of mind to ensure you are prepared for the arrival of your new family member. Why not make a list of questions before we come for our visit – such a useful service!
Home Puppy Package
Can’t attend evening puppy classes? A busy parent? Prefer the personal touch? This package is for you! We’ll come to your home (or anywhere convenient for you) for 4 x 1 hr appointments, plus you’ll be invited to join one of our outdoor socialisation events with puppies from a current class.
Private tuition for training issues must start with an initial appointment which lasts 1.5 hrs in your home, or suitable alternative venue (£85). After this, a Training Package can be booked consisting of 4 x 1 hr lessons (£180).
All lessons are tailored to your dogs’ individual needs to help resolve your dog’s most frustrating training issues:
- Pulling on lead
- Jumping up
- Not coming when called
- General lack of manners
NOTE: this is not for serious behaviour issues requiring a behaviour consultation.
