Group Training Classes

Muckyhound Group Training Classes

The Muckyhound Dog Training group classes are run a number of times per year.

Good Behaviour Foundation provides instruction on how to teach your dog the basics required to live in harmony with humans.

Puppy Learn & Play are fun sessions aimed at introducing your puppy to other doggy friends and instruction on how to teach them the life skills necessary to cope with the demands of living with human rules and requirements.

Our group training session are run in a controlled group environment, not exceeding 5 dogs and their handlers.  The primary focus for adolescent and adult dogs is on developing impulse control, which is the key to good dog behaviour.

Puppy Learn & Play

Puppy Learn & Play is designed to educate the ‘humans’ on how to work with their puppy to develop balanced behaviour; all puppies and new puppy families need to learn a new vocabulary.  More difficult behaviours are introduced gradually with homework to be completed in-between each session!

Fun off-lead play sessions with the other puppies are part of every class.

During this course, foundation behaviours are taken a step further. Homework focusing on real life situations are given to human and canine students.

5 week course

Courses scheduled according to demand  (Class sizes limited)

Price €135 (Incl. VAT), booking essential.

The following behaviours are covered:

  • Visual cues –  making sure your dog TRULY knows the behaviours associated with “sit”, “down” and “stand” – sounds easy, try standing in a corner, facing the wall, and asking your dog to lie down.
  • Sit-Stay & Down-Stay – here we move far beyond the normal training for sit and down stays, we push the behaviours with more distraction, more distance and more duration.
  • Wait & Leave-it – Generalising wait, making sure that even without any cue your dog won’t go through a door or similar openings without you having to say ‘wait’.
  • Loose Lead Walking – During the lead walking part of the programme handler and dog are put through their passes, tackling walking routes with increased obstacles and distractions
