Dog Training

Dog Training and Behaviour Classes

All training at Pawtropolis focuses on enhancing the relationship and respect between the owner and the dog, our training is fun for both you and your dog.

We have removed outdated training methods, introducing modern methods that can be applied to daily life and situations to ensure that all our dogs are a pleasure to live with.

We fully develop the dog and owner relationship by using only up to date modern techniques. In our classes owners are encouraged to work together with their dog without the use of a lead or force.  We promote force free training methods which rely on rewarding your dog for making the correct choices, displaying the right behaviours and good manners.

Obedience Classes

Monday evening from 6:30pm

Work your way through our uniquely developed Bronze, Silver and Gold award classes– your dog will socialise with all dogs in the class and develop a variety of the skills including heel work (off lead), positive recall from group play, emergency stop and leave it.

Scent Class

Wednesday from 6:30pm

This is a fun dog sport and training activity which is mentally engaging and appeals to those dogs who like to have a job and enjoy being rewarded – we introduce odour detection and reward and  include structured searching techniques.  The dog gets physical activity, mental stimulation and reinforces your basic obedience skills – resulting in an all round happy dog.

Puppy Classes

Thursday from 6:30pm

All the basics skills are covered including sit, stand, down, heel work and socialisation skills.  A perfect start on your training journey.

Classes are reviewed and updated to on a regular basis.

We have selected our classes to help our dogs move past their issues and socialise at a level which is comfortable for them initially however we would aim to have them all running around together.

Not all dogs will respond well in a group setting and for those who work erratic hours a weekly class is not always possible, we offer bespoke one to one training sessions which can be tailored to meet the needs of you and your dog.
