training classes

All of our dog training classes use modern, positive based training methods. We offer a range of classes for various age ranges, experience levels and future ambitions; so you can start out with our puppy classes, progress or join us for our Teamwork Awards, or hit the fast lane with our agility and hoopers classes (including sports foundations for the youngsters!).

All of our classes last for 6 weeks, and each 6 weekly course or block of classes costs just £75. From spring onwards our classes are held weekdays at the Nutter Dogs field at Greenhead Lane, BB12 9DU. We train outdoors regardless of the weather – so make sure to bring your coat!

nutter puppies

Nutter Puppies is aimed at puppies aged up to 20 weeks. It covers everything you need to raise a confident puppy who loves to work with you. We teach puppies how to play with and take food from you around distractions, the foundation skills for loose lead walking, recall and stays; how to focus on you both with & without prompting; how to greet people and other dogs appropriately (and preventing fixation on both of those); and how to readily swap or trade something that the puppy has (whether they should have it or not). We also cover various puppy troubleshooting woes, such as toilet training, chewing, mouthing, crate training and more!

teamwork awards

Our Teamwork Awards are open to dogs who have successfully completed our Nutter Puppies course, who have been to puppy classes with another dog trainer, or who have attended 1 to 1 training with us. We offer Bronze, Silver & Gold awards with varying criteria. All of our awards focus on giving dogs the opportunity, skills and knowledge they need to make good choices in life, so that making these good choices comes naturally!

Each of the Teamwork Award levels consists of 5 weeks of training, followed by “test night” in the final week. Teams who successfully complete each level will receive a certificate celebrating their achievements and they will be invited to join the subsequent level.
