At the end of the course, you are assessed and awarded a completion certificate.
The effects of Covid-19 in the U.K have been unprecedented; however, on a positive note, our efforts to maintain positive reinforcement and mental health in dogs have been ongoing during lock/down (self-isolation) since 23rd March 2020.
Following the recent relaxation of government guide lines of industries permitted to return to work, D.Garricques puppy and dog training foundations is now offering the training options which can be found here.
One-to-one Dog Training
The importance of our one-to-one programme is to recognise and focus on the attention of the dog and dog handler during training, within a controlled environment to minimise any distractions or unwanted interruptions from any outside sources.
The method of our training is based on positive reinforcement to encourage good behaviour.
Learning at a steady pace with patience is also encouraged and continuity and regularity of training. It is recommended that puppy training begins as young as 7 to 8 weeks of age.
The training methods will be specific to the breed and any relevant history of behavioural problems or health.
Necessary play intervals are interspersed to develop bonding.
Each learning stage is assessed and recorded on progress charts.
Fact file information literature and advice are provided for homework and practising after each training session.
Booking sessions are very flexible within a five-day working week. Regular intervals between training are recommended.
All consultations are based on a first-hand assessment of the canine involved before diagnosing any problems.
Vet referrals and further specialised issues can be accommodated by the trainer.
Remote Learning - How does it work
This is a very simple and unique way of passing on puppy training knowledge alongside training literature, which is provided for later practice sessions on your own.
All zoom consultations and meetings (video links) are exclusive to you and you only with the puppy/dog training instructor.
This can be accessed and used from your own electronic devices such as your smartphone, android tablet/iPad or a PC and placed in a suitable position for visual learning.
One of the most important things to consider and remember is that practice and consistency is very important, as well as following simple instructions involving play!
It still remains that the more you put in to your own practice sessions , the more you get back when doing these exercises after having your video link for one a hour session a week.
“We are very much enjoying our training with Denz, as it allowing us to feel confident in what we are teaching Lulu, breaking her out of some bad habits as well as creating stronger between Lulu and us. I would recommend Denz’s services many times over. The sessions are well structured and well thought out, building on top of each other from week to week. 23rd March 2021.”

“Remote Learning Obedience Puppy Training: Denzle is incredibly thorough and knowledgable in the field of dog behaviour and training. The course not only gives you all the fundamentals for getting your puppy trained but goes above and beyond to address the very specific training needs we highlighted at the beginning of the course such as having young children, constant barking and recall training. Denzle is passionate about his field and it shows in the quality of the work he produces. As long as you listen and are consistent with training, the results are impressive. Within 5 weeks our dog was free of 5 of the 6 issues we had raised. Can’t recommend this course highly enough and in the environment of covid the zoom lessons were invaluable. Thank you Denzle! ”

““Butternut is our first puppy and we can truly say we have been in professional hands with D.Garricques Puppy & Dog Training. Denzel’s training is clear, well structured, thorough and has left us with a well behaved and very happy pup. Even through another lockdown, Denzel provides amazing virtual classes and has really helpful behavioural advice. We would really recommend Denzel for any newbie dog parents like us. Thanks Denzel!””

“Our beautiful puppy Stanley the Pointer needed some dog training. We looked online and came across Denzle. What can we say!? We are so glad we contacted him and arranged the 6 week training. Denzle is amazing! He has so much knowledge and has helped us with every aspect of training. We have noticed a huge difference in Stanley and are so happy! ”

“We have just completed our 6 week course with Denzle for our rescue puppy Tommy ( Dachshund / Jack Russell cross ) we can't believe how much we have achieved in such a short space of time. Tommy is unrecognisable compared to 6 weeks ago. Denzle is reassuring, patient and an incredible teacher and we are forever grateful for the skills that Denzle has taught both our dog and us as handlers. Thank you! Highly recommended...!”

“I was impressed with Denzle from the beginning because he checked if my puppy had been vaccinated, it demonstrated a real care of my dog's well-being. Denzle outlined what would be happening and his explanation of clear and concise and easy to follow instructions. A very professional service, would recommend to anyone.”

“Denzle is a fantastic trainer, very patient and passionate about his craft and really supports his clients to get the best out of his training. I have learnt so much as has my partner, I can’t recommend his services enough. We have seen such a change in a small space of time with our dog, Rolo. Thoroughly enjoyable, informative and rewarding. Anna, Matt & Rolo .”

“We had our second training session for Oscar with Denzle. He is training us well. I say that because it’s not just the dog that get the training. Everything Denzle tells us about my dog is based in actual animal science. All of the lessons are being put to great use and we have had our first social meeting with another GSD. With great success. Denzle has given me more confidence in my dog and my ability to control him. You only get out of it what you put in. No more crushed fingers for me. Definitely worth his weight in gold. ”
