4 Paw Dog Training School's Packages

We are a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) and FSB

Puppy classes (puppy foundation course)

This course is for puppies from 12 weeks old once fully vaccinated. It is part of the Kennel Club Good Citizen Scheme and covers all your basics: sit - down - stay - walking on a loose lead - meeting and greeting people and dogs and more. The course runs for 5 weeks on a Thursday mornings & nights.






Bronze classes, Silver classes & Gold classes

These courses are for dogs, which are a year old or have had some basic training (puppies can move straight onto the bronze). These are a natural progression from the puppy classes (your dog does not need to have done the puppy classes before starting with the bronze). All classes are being taught in a 5-week blocks. Normally it would take at least 2 blocks before assessment by a KC recognised assessor.

One-to-one sessions & Behaviour consultations

Sometimes it is either not suitable for the dog to come into a class situation or the owner is unable to make it to the classes. One-to-one sessions can cover day-to-day training or we also cover behaviour problems. Sometimes things go wrong for a variety of reasons. Behaviour consultations offer a support programme in order to resolve the issue.






The agility classes are run as a fun based training to go out and enjoy something different with your dog. The dogs have to jump over hurdles & through hoops, run over different obstacles and through tunnels & weave their way through poles.






Canine Touch

This is a holistic discipline and works with the soft tissue of the dog; it is a non-diagnostic, non-invasive hands on discipline. It is a system of body work, with organized series of unique moves, these moves gently vibrate the muscles of the dogs body. The Canine Touch sessions are usually done at the dogs home.






Dog Food

We are a local stockist of Markus Muehle and Gentle, which is a natural cold pressed dog food.
