K9 Pursuits is committed to providing training for you and your dog that is reward based, effective and fun.

We promote reward based training and provide a training programme that enables you to understand how dogs learn and use that information to help you to gain and maintain a lasting and trusting relationship with your dog.

There are two qualified instructors at K9 Pursuits this gives us an opportunity to give individual attention throughout the course.

We take any breed of dog and start training from fourteen weeks old.

All dogs MUST be fully vaccinated and we will ask to see certificates of vaccination on the first evening of each course.

  • We now offer home visits

What activities are involved in the sessions?

The first evening of the foundation 1 is your induction. YOU DO NOT BRING YOUR DOG

We go through health and safety, discuss how dogs learn and explain why they do the things they do.

We demonstrate our methods to show you how they work.

We give you your training booklet that accompanies your course

The following evenings you are guided through a series of exercises that will help you to build a relationship with your dog and enable you to train him/her.

The foundation 2 and 3 involves bringing your dog each evening of the course and extending the exercises previously taught.
