Dog Obedience Training in Oxford & surrounding areas

Goody 4 Paws Icon

The course is fun and enjoyable for you and your dog. It is a structured course, each week progressing from the previous week. Therefore, it is important to attend all the classes so that you and your dog benefit from the course.

If you do have to miss a class, I offer “catch-up” sessions at your home, for a charge of £20.

At the end of each class, comprehensive handouts are given detailing all exercises covered in the class and the methods of training, to use as an aide memoir when training your dog during the week, so that your dog is ready for the next class.

Is This Your First Puppy?

If you haven’t had a puppy before, or for a long time, you may benefit from an “Early Days” home visit just before, or just after you bring your puppy home so that you know how you’re going to start off with your new family member, including things like toilet training. This appointment will bring you lots of help, hints, and tips on the early days of having a new puppy. Plus help in getting you started and ready for puppy training. The appointment must be arranged by telephone or email, not through the puppy class booking system.

The price for an “Early Days” home visit is £45 to be paid by PayPal or BACS in advance of the home visit appointment (cancellation/refund is discretionary).
