Has your puppy or dog already got the basics? Do you want to progress your dogs training further or just want to give your dog some mental stimulation?
This class is ideal for puppies and dogs that have already completed some basic training and are looking to progress their training further. We usually advise 10-12 weeks of our puppy & dog training before progressing to this class.
Classes are tailored to the dogs attending, and we work on obedience and doggy manners at a high level. Dogs and owners attending this class also have the opportunity to work on a 3 stage certification for their dogs called the IMDT partnership grades.
We work on all the elements of the partnership grades in our classes and once your dog has completed all the tasks to the correct standard they receive a certficate starting at level 1, with level 3 being the most advanced. (This is optional and is at no extra cost)
We train in a realistic outdoor environment and train the dogs to work completely off the lead in a manner of challenging activities. Some of the activities we train for are recall from play, recall to heel, advanced heel work, Off lead obedience in high distraction environments working at distance and with hand signals and much much more.
Classes are fun and progressive and a great way to stimulate and enjoy spending time with your dog.
Classes are booked in sets of 6 and you can chose the dates you come. We train all year round which means you always have something fun to do with your dog, as every class is progressive and we are constantly designing and creating new training activities so there is always something new and challenging to learn.Classes are held in a grassed paddock at the Blue Cross Rehoming Centre in Ipswich. We are delighted to be training at the Blue Cross as Best Behaviour Dog Training support the rescue dogs with financial contributions for the use of the space as well as giving the Blue Cross rescues a space in every class so they have time out of kennels, and interaction with dogs and people whilst they are waiting to find their forever home.
