DOG TRAINING

Our Wonder Dog training courses are designed to bring out the best in your pet dog or new rescue dog!
Our basic 5-week courses are perfect for adult dogs (8 months+) with no previous training (or just home-schooled basics) who would benefit from learning good manners and canine life skills.  We also welcome new rescue dogs and their owners - training is a great confidence booster for your new dog and starts you both on the road to developing a strong bond. 
 
All the family are welcome and encouraged to come along and get involved!

Our experienced, friendly and dedicated trainers will guide you through the courses with clear, hands-on instruction, weekly teaching material and homework sheets throughout the courses.  Email and telephone support is available to all our students.

 WONDER DOG RESCUE DOG TRAINING - 5 x 1hr weekly classes

 

From our experience working with Shelter Rescues we understand how important training is to both owner and their new four-legged friend. Rehoming can be very stressful for a dog, with new humans, new surroundings and new routines to get used to.  Training is a great confidence booster for both new owner and rescue dog and starts you on the road to developing a strong bond between you.

PLEASE NOTE: REACTIVITY/AGGRESSION IN DOGS IS NOT ADDRESSED IN THIS GROUP CLASS. See our Reactive Rover 3-part private course below



If your new dog is shy or is showing any other stress signs, ask for a TRAINING ASSESSMENT to determine whether the group class environment is suitable or if 1-2-1 training sessions are required.

age:  from 8 months (at Week 1 date)

pre-requisite:  full vaccinations including kennel cough

duration:  5 x 1hr weekly classes (see dates above)

price: €149 per dog (all enthusiastic members of the family welcome!)​

 

Loose Lead Walking 60min Practical Training Session at your own home location

Many many owners experience the frustration of setting out for a nice walk with your dog but instead endure an unpleasant, arm-pulling experience that is uncomfortable for both owner and dog. For some owners, the problem is so bad, it leads to our companion dogs not being exercised and socialized sufficiently which may lead to more behavior problems, or worse, surrender to the pound or rescue.

Our 60-minute intensive training session will give you & your dog the practical skills required to develop and progress loose-lead walking together. 

 

Topics:
- Exercise & Socialisation
- Motivation & Rewards
- Practical Loose-lead techniques
- Loose-lead walking with distractions
- Useful Loose-lead equipment 

​
