Surrey and South London Dog Training and Behaviour
Book One to One Training, Courses and Workshops
27th February Update
Plans for returning to in-person classes are in motion! From April 3rd we will be starting back up at our outdoor venue in SE19, running courses and workshops (provided no further changes from the Government).
All indoor training will remain suspended until restrictions relax further.
One to one training can resume outdoors, provided the first session is held online (instead of indoors). Under normal circumstances our trainers would come into your house, learn about your dog, the training requirements and start the training needed indoors, away from distractions. Our online sessions are cheaper than in-person (no travel time for us) and just as effective.
Online training classes and one to ones will continue to be offered online too.
In-person classes do not typically involve any dogs playing with other dogs as this would encourage people to get too close to one another, breaking government guidelines. Online classes are both cheaper and more efficient, particularly when teaching new puppies and we find the puppies who learn online generally progress much quicker than those attending in-person classes. Socialisation involves gentle exposure to a range of environments and stimuli and puppy classes alone are simply not enough to produce well-socialised dogs. Take what you learn in your online class, practise at home and then generalise the skills in the real world once the behaviours are familiar.
Stay safe and keep on training!
