About the event

Master Class – Confidence building for you and your dog

6 dogs in total

4 hours

£120 per dog.

We will tailor make the training to you, but we will cover.

- Pulling on the lead

- Name pay

- Start of place with distractions

- How to build your confidence around other dogs and dog owners.

Ideal session for those travelling far, for those who can’t commit to a 6wk class, for those who need that extra intensive session. We can also accommodate those traveling far with onsite accommodation and if you wanted an additional 1-1 training session the next day.

Have your dog trained by head trainer Matt in this specialised one off Master Class. We will only welcome 6 dogs so there is plenty of space between each dog and their owners.

Matt will lead you through the foundations, you will cover from name pay, loose lead work, the start of place all whilst under the distractions of other dogs. Matt will work with his dog Neil to help you build confidence. If needed due to extreme lack of confidence, you can walk Rupert Matt’s calmest dogs to see how you feel walking these compared to the fear of walking past other dogs out in the real world. This will just allow you to get an idea of how it can feel to calmly walk a dog. Matt will delve into the psychology behind this and build you up. We will have you walking past Neil who will be playing safely in the agility field. We will aim to finish this class by a going on a small pack walk at our local park which is extremely popular with other dogs if time allows. You will leave this master class feeling more in control, unafraid of what you need to do to manage the situations.

Each dog will be trained by Matt in front of everyone else, a chance to learn and watch whilst having your dog in a safe social environment. You will learn techniques and training to help you deal with real life scenarios with your dog. This is the start to your training you must keep up with our techniques and training to see results.

This is the training Sit Happens specialises in with people travelling from all over the country to work with Matt, where other trainers fail Matt will help you guys flourish – as long as you stick with the training methods Matt shows you and you follow his progression training your results will work and last.

The price is per dog attending, this is an adult only master class. We are focusing on you as the dog handler and your dog.

Toilets are on site. You are welcome to bring refreshments there will be breaks taken throughout for you and your dogs.

Filming will be taken place on the day.
