My dog doesn't listen to me
Talking Dogs Rally
Have a go agility
These sessions promise to be fabulous fun for you and your dog, and are designed so you can do a few sessions here and there, or if you and your dog love spending time together you can book over a longer period of time and progress with all the activities we have on offer. All of the activities are progressive so every week will be different.
Heres a little bit of info on each of the activities on offer:
Hoopers is a fun new agility, which utilises a series of ground-level obstacles called Hoops. Instead of physical dexterity, the challenge of Hoopers is entirely focused on the ability of the handler and the dog to work together as a smooth flowing team.
Hoopers is ideal for dogs that are too young or too old for agility or are unable to do impact sports. Hoopers is great fun and you and your dog will learn all the foundation principles of standard agility but instead be working with hoops and ground obstacles.
Dogtivity adventures are low impact K9 assault courses combining fun exercises that improve co-ordination, motor learning, balance, muscle strength and stamina through gymnastics, scent work and proprioception (Body and Spacial awareness). Designed for puppies and dogs of all ages
This class will build the relationship between you and your dog, improve your dogs muscle memory and give them great mental stimulation. If that wasn't enough it will also help off lead walking, and you will have a fantastic understanding of your dogs body language.
Fun Flyball - designed for all dogs whether they love balls or not!!
We all know dogs like to run and jump, but not all dogs like balls which is why we have developed a new type of flyball that is suitable for every dog.
Fun Flyball uses balls for dogs that love a tennis ball, and other rewards for those that don't. That's what makes this fun flyball Fun because its designed for the dog and owner to enjoy!!
A 'one off' session to teach your dog 5 show stopping tricks to wow their doggy friends.
We break down all the elements of each trick so you and your dog can learn some fun trickery to impress all your friends.
Tricks will change each session.
Tricks are a fantastic way to improve your dogs general obedience, balance, focus and most importantly their bond with you. Trick training can also help improve concentration and provide a valuable source of mental stimulation.
This promises to be an hour of fun and entertainment for you and your dog.
MY DOG DOESN"T LISTEN TO ME
Whether your dog has been training all their life or are brand new to training, help your dog improve on this very valuable skill.
During the session we work on lots of exercises you can use at home to help improve your dogs listening skills. Each session will be different and will focus on basic listening and cognitive skills.
TALKING DOGS RALLY
As a TALKING DOGS RALLY instructor I am delighted to bring this fantastic sport to all dog owners.
Talking Dogs Rally® is the only canine rally organisation in the UK specifically devised for pet dogs and their people with a core value of allowing natural not stylised movement and maintaining balance throughout the courses where dogs work on both the left and right sides.
We use an array of signs and stations where you and your dog perform each of the obedience exercsies in a numbered course.
Talking Dogs Rally® is fun for all, welcoming handlers of all ages and abilities, and of all shapes and sizes. With 93 different exercises, six levels of challenge, eight different classes and an infinite combination of stations, Talking Dogs Rally® will keep you and your dog busy for years to come.
Classes are held in a secure grassed paddock at the Blue Cross Rehoming Centre in Ipswich.
