The Dogworks - Clever Dog Training Solutions

Speciality Classes for Adult Dogs

While we know that formal classes and practical training is important, we also know that sometimes you have to let loose and just have some fun! The Dogworks also offers a diverse set of training classes that teach your dog exciting new behaviours in avenues that are inspired by the different dog sports and games out there. Many of our students enroll in these types of classes to supplement their weekly classes, just for the fun of it! Feel free to check them out and ask us what we think might be a good fit! These are classes that anyone can succeed at.

Rocket Recall  - £65 (4 weeks)

A 4 week masterclass aimed at showing you how to teach your dog to come back when called.​​

A good recall can be a life saving behaviour to teach your dog, not only that is great to be able to let them off and watch them run and play with other dogs when you're out and about, but it is vital your dog come back to you when you ask it to.
This course will guide you through the process of 'proofing' your dog's recall in different environments and with various distractions.
Please note - most of this course is outdoors so appropriate clothing will be needed!
Dogs must be over 9 months to attend

Magic Dog - £65 (4 weeks)

This is a 4 week course where you'll learn to teach your dog some awesome tricks as well as giving your dog vital mental stimulation and getting his brain working. It's amazing how quickly dogs pick things up - if we know how to teach them correctly. And in doing so you can improve your dogs flexibility, focus and show off to your friends!
From simple tricks such as spin/twist to advance tricks -such as putting your toys away and recognising shapes and numbers, we'll cover a whole array of new behaviours.
This class requires some basic knowledge and previous training. Dogs must be over 9 months

Super Sniff - £65 (4 weeks)

A 4 week course during which you and your dog will learn the basics of scent work.
Providing physical and mental exercise for our dogs is the best way to keep them happy and healthy. It also helps to decrease or eliminate problem behaviour. Dogs have amazing noses and live in a chemical world. While humans primarily use their eyes to gather information, our dog friends use their noses.
Scent Games tap into a dog's natural instinct to hunt. Motivation comes from the dog's innate hunting instinct and the food or toy reward the dog receives for finding the source of odour.
Starting with the first class, your dog will successfully search and find hidden food rewards.
No prior skills are needed for this class, although your dog needs to know the basics and must be over 9 months old

Ready, Steady, FOCUS! - £80 (6 weeks)

This class concentrates on helping your excitable or distracted dog focus on you. Our six week long Ready, Steady FOCUS! course will help you and your dog communicate more effectively- we’ll help you to understand your dog’s body language while teaching the focus exercises and impulse control games that will help you and your dog become an efficient team!
Your dog doesn't need to have had any prior training to attend this course (although it helps!) and must be over 12 months of age

"Karen and co are fantastic. My loveable lab went here for classes to learn how to concentrate in distracting surroundings (she finds other people and dogs super exciting!!) and she is doing so much better. I've put into practice all the advice and I can see the difference bit by bit."
