Real Life Training Walks

Have you struggled with different aspects of your dog training?


  • Application of the training commands?
  • Your dog shows an interest in livestock?
  • Has a dislike of trains or never had experience of them?
  • They get too excited in town centres ?
  • They want  to go swimming given any opportunity?
  • You need some more tips in regards to recall issues?
  • Or your lead training could be tidied up a bit more around increasing distractions?
  • Your dog had predatory behaviour which you need guidance with?


These training groups can help you. They are small groups (max 6 dogs) and are held in different locations at different times of day.


Walks taking place:

  • Country walks with livestock
  • Canal walks/old railway line walks to work of control as people and dogs pass and control commands
  • Town centres when markets are on to work on big distraction levels
  • Trip on a train and lead walk down main road working on heel work and unusual situation
  • Recall tips/walk


As these are training walks it may not be appropriate for dogs to be let off lead but this will be assessed dependant on the dogs booked on. Additional equipment maybe required including toys, kongs, treats and long line dependant on the session. Equipment will be stated when advertised.
