Training Classes in Reading

Puppy Training

We accept puppies for training once they have finished their initial course of vaccinations. We do need to check that they are covered, so please bring the vaccination certificate with you when you first enrol.

During the classes we will show you how to train your puppy in:

  • Basic obedience - sit, down and stand
  • Walking nicely on the lead
  • Coming when called
  • Being handled and groomed
  • Responding promptly to their name and to commands
  • Socialisation with other dogs and with strangers
  • Food manners
  • Playing with toys in a controlled way

Further Training

The Club has been in existence for over 35 years, so we have a great deal of experience with dogs of all types and can cater for all breeds and abilities. We cover many other exercises in our other classes, including:

  • Walking on and off the lead
  • Recall
  • Wait
  • Stay
  • Retrieve
  • Distance control
  • Controlled greeting of people and other dogs
