Winter Training 2013/14
During the winter, Angie takes in a small number of dogs to train. Initially they come for a 2 week assessment, at the end of which Angie will let you know if she feels she can progress the dog in its training.
Typically dogs stay for 6 weeks (or more) and receives 10 (and sometimes 12) days training every 14 days. A longer timeframe is appreciated as Angie does not 'flash train' dogs but works at their pace to put in place the 'fundamentals.' All levels of dogs are welcome from unstarted young dogs to dogs needing some 'polishing' for trials.
Owners are welcome to visit their dog at any time to view progress. Overseas owners can be provided a video of progress after the first month of training. Support and advice is provided after the completion of training to successfully transition the dog back to its owner. If Angie feels the dog is not making progress, she will let you know so you do not spend money unnecessarily.
All dogs are housed in clean and roomy kennels with raised beds on which to sleep. They are fed good quality food - Arden Grange. You are welcome to provide your own dog food if your dog has a favourite food or treats. All dogs are exercised separately 3-4 times a day (outside of training time) in a secure play area. They do not sit in their kennels all day long twiddling their paws or throwing their food bowls around!
Because Angie only takes 3 dogs at a time, pre-booking is essential. The next available slots are January 3 - Feb 15, 2014 (6 weeks). Please note that all dogs are sent home for Christmas so they don't miss out on any Christmas treats or presents :-)
Payment for the two week assessment is made upfront, and thereafter payment is every two weeks. As a precuation, we do ask you to vaccinate your dog for Kennel Cough. If you do not have a reasonably priced source of this vaccine, this can be provided to you at cost (£12).
Please email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call Angie for further details.
