Beginner/Puppy Courses


Who are they for?
Our Beginner/Puppy Courses are for owners of puppies and young friendly adolescent and/or rescue dogs. Our aim is to teach the owners how to turn their dogs into well mannered and social companions who they can take anywhere with them.

What do we teach?
Our aim is to help the owners improve their dog’s behaviour and listening skills both at home and when out for a walk. We aim to teach :
• How dogs learn and how they communicate with us
• How to bond with your dog and build up a relationship
• How to train your dog to walk on the lead nicely
• How to train your dog to come back to you
• How to play with your dog and Stay in Control

• How to groom and handle your dog

When and where?
The courses are held on Thursday evenings from 6.45pm to 7.25pm at Chacombe Village Hall, which is located on the edge of Chacombe Village, which is about 5 minutes from the M40 (junction 11). The full address is: Thorpe Road, Chacombe, Banbury, OX17 2JW
