Basic Obedience classes are held at our club house in St Lawrence.
Classes are on Thursday at 7:45pm for dogs.
Please take the time to read the Covid-19 guidance (in the download section below), which explains how our indoor classes will be managed to ensure compliance with government regulations.
In obedience dogs are taught to understand and obey certain commands. At the domestic level a well trained dog is a happy dog with a happy owner, because the owner can trust their dog. For example to return to them when called on the beach, or to drop into a down if a car is coming. For the dog, they are pack animals, so learning to obey commands helps them to understand that their owners are the ‘boss dog’.
The basic commands we teach our dogs in the introductory classes are to Sit, to go Down, to walk by the owners side without pulling on the lead, to return to owner when called, to stay in one spot when the owner leaves them, and to pick up and bring back and give items when requested. Coming to dog training classes is also very important for socialising your dog, so it is use to contact with other dogs and people.
The teaching method we use at Jersey Dog Training Association is called Guidance, we show a dog what is expected and then reward it (with praise, food or play) when it does it right. We do not condone harsh training at our club.
Classes ware held on Thursdays at 7:45pm, at our club house: Maillards Memorial Hall, St Lawrence)
These classes are for dogs over the age of 6 months who are newcomers to obedience. Dogs are taught the basic commands, that are needed for a dog in a home environment.
The domestic course is a 8 week course.
The cost of a course is £60. Your 8 lessons must be taken within 10 weeks of joining, this is so that the dogs gain the most benefit from the classes, as they will be attending regularly.
When you come to dog training, please wear soft flat shoes, bring a lead and collar (no choke chain collars), a pooh bag to collect any mess, and a bag of yummy tit-bits and/or toy to reward your dog, and your puppy!
Other members of the family are welcome to come and watch the dog training classes and listen to the dog training tips..
As soon as your puppy is 3 months old, and has had all of their injections so they can mix with other dogs, you can start classes. You can start your 10 week course at anytime. Just come along on a Thursday to start, on your first night arrive a little early to meet the trainer Judy and fill in the forms.
