The intermediate class, together with the basic class, are the mainstay of dog training as they consolidate any previous training and help reduce behavioural problems. Attending these classes on a regular basis reinforces the owner-dog relationship and also improves the social interaction of your dog with other dogs in a controlled environment. Generally all dogs find these sessions highly enjoyable. Those who are progressing well in the basic class and experienced handlers will find the intermediate class ideal for consolidating what they have learnt in previous classes, refining their technique and maybe trying some new commands. Don’t worry if you are not sure which class is most suitable for your dog we will assess them and advise you. Email firstname.lastname@example.org. Handlers of any age are welcome.
All new members need to complete a Membership Application form and to ensure that your dog is booked onto the most appropriate course, please can you complete an Assessment form. Please email the completed forms to email@example.com
We would be grateful if you could read the following notes prior to attending the first session to ensure your puppy or dog gets the most out of the course.
Where, When and How Much?
The intermediate class is held each Tuesday evening except during (please refer to the calendar) August and December when we are closed, at Hermitage Village Hall (indoors). The session lasts about 40 minutes. It is recommended that you arrive 10 minutes earlier to give your dog a chance to settle. There is a playing field behind the Hall to let the dogs run off a little steam before the class. In order to attend a class, you must be a member of the society and membership costs £15.00 per person per calendar year (January-December) while each 6 week course session costs £18 per dog. All payments for courses should be made online. If you have not attended previously you will need to complete the assessment form prior to attending any classes. There is no requirement to have attended previous classes.
