WHAT LEVEL TRAINING IS BEST FOR MY DOG?

Puppy Classes Ideal for puppies between 9 & 14 weeks of age. Puppy classes are extremely important for socialisation & healthy development.

Clever Puppy training For puppies 14-22 weeks of age (up to 5.5 months of age). This training is perfectly suited for problem prevention as well as age appropriate training for your puppy to develop to their full potential. See below on this page.

Clever Young Dog training (stage 1) Once puppy has become the town’s socialite, we provide additional training to build on the basics. This is suitable for all ages; mainly dogs over  5.5 months of age. Even if your dog has not attended training before they can start at this level. It is suitable for all ages; as long as the dog is social with other dogs. See page 1-2 of this training services page.

Clever Dog training (stage 2) with two different levels. The main level is more advanced training to build on the basics, and training commands.. But in Oakford we also run a level which covers an intro to agility, nose work and tricks. If courses are advertised see page 2-3 of this training services page. or email us.

Individual dog training Our trainers can cover a range of training behaviours for pets and their owners. If you are unsure where to start, try an individual lesson first. This is a private session and the trainer will work alongside you and your dog for the full 30 minutes. Ideal for new dogs or dogs that have not been socialised. See page 2-3 of this training services page for advertised time slots (at Oakford & Samson).
