After your dog's training course, it is important that you and all key carers of your dog attend at least 6 hours of tuition on-site at The Dog House. Years of experience have taught us that on-site lessons provide the best possible controlled and dedicated environment for you and your dog to learn in.
The time is made up of two 3-hour lessons spread over two half days and contains both practical and theoretical teaching. The objective is:
To teach you how to communicate effectively with your dog
Ensure positive behaviour going forward
Understand any behavioural issues and learn how to avoid triggering unwanted behaviours in the future
Individual trait training and site-specific behaviour
Due to some time being spent outside, we suggest that you bring suitable clothing and footwear such as raincoats and wellies. If needed, we do have some spares!
Up a hill from The Dog House is our lovely Penrhiw Cottage which we recommend for your stay. 'Meals on wheels' or dinner with us is provided at a cost. Please let us know in advance if you have any dietary requirements. There is parking in front of the cottage gates.
