Positive Training For Canines - Dog Training in Winchester, Hampshire
Our main aim at Positive Training For Canines is to build an excellent relationship between you and your four legged friend, through mutual respect, belief and cooperation. We only use kind, force free positive training methods to achieve results.
Classes are held at Colden Common Community Centre, St Vigor Way, Colden Common on Monday and Tuesday evenings. We offer puppy socialisation, adolescent and adult dog training classes. We have teamed up with Companion Care Vets in Winnall running their Puppy Socialisation Sessions on Wednesday evenings.
Puppy training is part of puppy socialisation. Here at Positive Training for Canines we offer small, fun, relaxed puppy classes where individual attention can be given. Our puppy classes are designed for pups up to 16 weeks and after their first vaccination.
We run 6 week courses at Colden Common Community Centre and a 4 week course at Companion Care Vets. Our classes are designed to cover the basics of your training including settling on a mat, greeting other dogs, loose lead, recall, not jumping up, mental stimulation, waits, toilet training, sleeping, chewing and biting and much more!
Our Junior Classes are designed for pups aged 17 weeks up to 24 weeks of age. These classes are held at Colden Common Community Centre on Monday and Tuesday evening. During your 6 week course we cover loose lead, recalling away from other dogs and distractions, hand signals, problem solving, an introduction to clicker training, not jumping up, leave it and much more!
Adult Dog Training
Here at Positive Training For Canines, we offer a class suitable for dogs aged 6 months or above. During your 6 week course we cover loose lead, walking past other dogs, waits, stays, not jumping up, leave it and we also introduce clicker training to encourage the dogs to think for themselves. These classes are suitable for dogs that have been re-homed, completed a Junior class and those who wish to refresh their training or to help build their bond with their loving four legged friend. Make Positive Training for Canines your number one choice for dog training classes in Winchester
These workshops are held from Spring to Autumn. Our recall workshops are 4 x 1 hour sessions to help build focus and attention as a team. Recall isn't about getting your dog back it's about keeping your dog with you in the first place. During the four sessions we will teach you some fun games and tricks so your dog won't want to leave you. Spaces are limited to 4 dogs on each workshop.
Loose Lead Workshops
Would you like your dog to walk on a relaxed lead? Would you like to enjoy taking your dog for walk? Do you look at other dog walkers in envy of having a superb dog on the other end of the lead? Look no further! Our loose lead workshops are 4 x 1 hour sessions to give you the tools and confidence to help teach your dog how to walk with you instead of pulling your arm out of its socket. Each session is held in different environments to give you the chance to practice and work with the smells and natural distractions life will throw at you.
Our fun agility sessions are held from April until October on selected Saturday afternoons, weather permitting. Small classes so individual attention can be given. Each session lasts one hour. and booking is essential.
Perfect Fit Harnesses
I am a stockist of the Perfect Fit Harness from Dog-Games. Harnesses are much nicer for dogs than collars because it takes the pressure off the neck. The harness comes in three pieces to allow a snug and perfect fit for your individual dog. As your dog grows you should only have to replace one or two pieces at a time. Here's the link if you would like to know more www.dog-games-shop.co.uk/perfect-fit-fleece-dog-harness I can carry out harness fittings before and after class. If you would like to book a fitting please get in touch.
“I took my puppy to Positive Training For Canines to help me learn the basics in training but also to socialise her. I found these classes very useful with a relaxing but fun atmosphere. Leah and Paula are very knowledgeable trainers who have a real passion for the job. I would highly recommend joining their classes. ”
