Rescue Dog Classes

The first step for rescue dogs is getting them settled into their new home. When you enrol onto our classes, let us know you have a rescue dog and we will provide you with guidance on this process, before class even starts, and help to get your dog comfortable with their new family.

Our weekly classes in Epsom and Ewell, provide a pressure-free, friendly environment, with plenty of space between each dog so that everyone feels comfortable.

One key part of socialisation that often gets missed is teaching our dogs to be calm, to be able to focus on us with the distraction of other dogs and people. If done the wrong way you can end up with a dog that gets over excited by other dogs and people or can become worried by them. Our classes are the safest place to socialise your dog as we show you the games that will grow calmness, confidence and focus around any distractions. All of our rescue dog training classes focus on specially-designed games, which help to ensure a relaxed atmosphere. In the case of rescue dogs, this can be especially important!

One-to-One Training & Behaviour

A rescue dog will often come with unique needs, which must be accommodated. These needs can develop as a result of going from home to home, or perhaps because of a lack of proper socialisation that previous owners didn’t quite understand. You needn’t view these lingering problems as lifelong disadvantages; with the right dog training, we can turn those struggles into strengths!

How can we support a rescue dog?

While it’s easy to find advice on the internet about how to care for a rescue dog, this sort of advice is often very vague and general. It’s easy to do the wrong thing, and then wonder why the problem behaviours aren’t going away. Happily, we’re on hand to point you in the right direction.

After just a little bit of one-to-one time, we can pinpoint the possible causes of problem behaviours. In this way, we can prescribe a bespoke solution. One that doesn’t rely on boring commands, but which encourages your dog to play games with you and grow that much needed bond.

When we’re done, you’ll have an easy-to-follow plan that’ll fit your lifestyle and help your rescue dog to overcome their issues and handle stressful situations capably, so that even a walk in the park becomes – well – a walk in the park!
