Starting your dog on his training career and working to get you what you want from him.
The very small numbers in this group mean we get a happy medium between one-to-one training and a group session. We usually have 3 or 4 staff available on Sunday afternoon to give a very high ratio of trainer to dog assistance.
Consisting of four sessions over three weeks we make a small hole in the diaries of busy people while still getting a complete course. We cover the same amount of material as we do in our longer courses.
– Assess to make sure he’s happy at class
– Teach and troubleshoot recall, lead walking and general control
– If he’s happy in class and you want to do more training you can repeat the course for more practice or move on to College
— Repeat Positively Dogs paying only for half, even if you decide to repeat Presentation
— College is a longer, 6 week course, where we can work on advanced exercises like stay and retrieve
— You can move-on any time once you’ve finished your first course
Two hours where we teach owners and leave the dogs at home. This means we’re not spending a lot of time during the classes when the dogs come along teaching people. Dogs can get bored and barky while their owners are learning how to train them.
Owners can also come to Big Brain well before their dog can start in class, say, if your chosen class is full. This means you can work through the Online Course and practise what you learn in the owner training session before you come to class with your dog.
You can choose to repeat Big Brain if there’s another one before your course starts or even after you’ve finished. We recommend this because repetition is one of the best ways to fix learning – in humans as well as dogs.
