Description

What is the training for?

Puppy and dog training classes teach obedience, good behaviour and doggy manners for puppies and dogs of all ages. We cover a vast array of training suitable for all levels including beginner, intermediate and advanced.  Whether you have a complete novice or a doggy genius we tailor the learning to you and your puppy or dog to ensure you get the best training experience.
Here are a few of the things we cover:
Socialisation, Lead walking, Toilet training for puppies, Recall, Impulse control, Trick training, Emergency stops, Manners around animals and people, Scent work, Heelwork, Stopping and preventing jumping up and much more!

How long does a course last?

We offer more than standard training, and instead of set courses our classes are progressive and tailored, bookable in sets of 6, 10 or 14 weeks for your convenience. Classes can be booked as many times or as often as you want. 
This allows you and your dog to have a personal training experience combined with the benefit of a group class. 

How many sets shall I book?

You can choose to book as many sets of 6, 10 or 14 classes as you would like. There is no limit to how many times you can keep booking as our training is tailored and progressive. 
We recommend that puppies receive some level of formal training and socialisation for the first year of their life to ensure you have a well rounded doggy citizen as they enter adulthood.
Adult dogs requirements will depend on any previous training, but as a minimum we recommend 10 classes.

Flexibility?

We have lots of times and days available, as well as offering the flexibility to book dates to suit you in sets of 6, 10 or 14 classes. If you have a holiday or event planned you can choose the dates you attend from our easy to use booking calendar.

Where?

Classes are held in a secure grassed paddock at the Blue Cross Rehoming Centre in Ipswich. 
Blue Cross Rehoming Centre
Bourne Hill

What to bring to class:

  • Flat collar or harness (Choke chains, prong collars are not permitted)
  • Standard lead (not extendable)
  • Lots of yummy treats cut into small pieces. Thinly sliced hot dogs are great for training
  • Poo bags
  • Please bring your dogs vaccination certificate to the first session you attend or email a copy to [email protected]
  • Please dress for the weather conditions, to ensure you and your dog are comfortable throughout the session. We train in all weathers. REMEMBER, there’s no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothes!!!!!!

Water and water bowls are provided, but if your dog prefers their own please feel free to bring that as well. We recommend not feeding a morning meal, or at least reducing it, as the training is reward based and their tummy’s will fill up quickly!!!

Social Distancing and COVID 19

  • Please remain in your car until you see your instructor indicate you can come into the training area
  • Please follow all social distancing guidelines before, during and after class. Anyone not observing social distancing or health and safety guidelines advised by ourselves will be asked to leave immediately with no right of refund. Your safety and enjoyment is our number one priority.
  • Please bring your own leads, including a long line with maximum length of 5m. 
  • To assist with social distancing rules we ask that one person per household attends with their dog. This can be varied/ alternated between caregivers week to week if required.
  • Please wash hands before and after attending a session.
  • In the event of a lockdown, government changing protocols, or if we feel it is in the best interest of those attending, training may be conducted via an online medium instead of a face to face class where necessary as per our terms.



Parking & Facilities

Parking is available on site, and please read our terms and conditions before booking.
Payment of fees should be made at the time of placing a booking. Failure to make payment will result in the booking being cancelled.

Helping animals in need through training

We are delighted to be training at the Blue Cross. Best Behaviour Dog Training support the rescue dogs with financial contributions for the use of the space as well as giving the Blue Cross rescue dogs 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.

5/5 Rating

Training for all. We couldn’t believe our luck when we bought our Labrador to these classes. They were informative, really enjoyable and best of all. All of the dogs are training at the same time. So much better than our experiences with our last dog many moons ago. Highly recommend to everyone.
