Introductory Seminar

Our introductory seminar lasts approximately 3 hours long. The seminars are run on a regular basis at our Dog Academy in Whiston, Staffordshire. This is an entirely theory session and therefore, sorry, but dogs are not invited to attend. Children are welcome to come along but we’re afraid it may be a little boring for younger children.

The cost is £10 per family to attend and we do encourage as many family members to attend as possible as this truly is the basis to all of our training. The seminar will cover how dogs learn, dog body language and an introduction to dog behaviour. We also go into more detail about our ethos and it gives you the opportunity to see our facilities and met us before signing up to train with us.

We ask everyone wanting to start training classes with us to first attend an Introductory Seminar. This allows us all to be working from the same page with your dog. It also means we have covered a lot of the theory aspects leaving more time for practical work in class!

The seminar is also great for anyone just wanting to learn more about their dog, and how to communicate better with them.

Upcoming Seminars:

    Really enjoyed the dog seminar, found it very interesting. Made to feel welcome. Would definitely recommend it.

    When we bought our puppy two weeks ago, there was no contemplating on where to take him for training – of course it was here at PPT.

    However before starting our classes Katie invited me to their seminar – which is really informative. We’ve all done it (or at least the majority of us) we’ve gone out bought a puppy and thought “I can train him, it cant be that hard”. Well from this seminar I learnt things that I didnt have a clue even existed and actually how hard and challenging it can actually be to train a dog, without knowing some of the simplistic things first; eg: body language and how dogs actually processes and learns.

    Both; Katie and Ian work brilliant together, they’re extremely knowledgeable and up to date with all current methods of training and scientific studies – making sure you get the best out of your future life together as a family (with your new addition) and of course your training.

    The seminar is full of very useful information and I can assure you, after the seminar you will not consider taking your beloved pet anywhere else for their training.

    Great work Katie and Ian!
