Colective Training for Dogs

If your adult dog tolerates other dogs with a leash of approx. 20 m., he can join the collective dog training classes. If your dog does not make it yet, then he first needs an individual training.

We guarantee courses based on the individual needs of the dogs, as the courses don’t include more than 4 dogs per each session of 60 minutes. 

Individual Puppy Training

Collective Puppy Training

Entry at any time at an age between 8 and 16 weeks of life. Saturday 2-4pm

During the winter, the puppy classes take place indoor in a 20° heated room. During the summer, puppies are trained outside.

You have a new puppy and you would like to teach him new exercises through positive training methods? You are at the right place!

At Vet Ethology, we particularly value the importance of puppy classes, as they play an important role in the prevention of behavioural problems. These classes contribute to a stronger human animal relationship. Both humans and dogs benefit from these training sessions: puppies keep long-term benefits from them and the owners develop more confidence in the relation with their dog.

The courses are given in small groups (maximum 6 participants with 1 trainer per 3 dogs). They are based on positive reinforcement and play. During each session, there are moments of controlled play, short training moments and theory. The owners do benefit of a better knowledge of their dog’s behaviour and the learning theory.

The puppy classes allow the puppies to socialize correctly to their own species and to other species during this critical period of their life.

During 5 courses of 2 hours, we will offer a successful start of life to your dog. The topics include socialization, bite inhibition, keeping relaxed in exciting situations, the basics (sitting, lying, walking on a loose leash, welcoming people without jumping off, recall…), impulse control, play with other dogs. Different theoretical topics will be given during this course on socialization, communication signals, prevention or redirection of undesirable behavior…

Price: 250€ for the complete course. Payment is required by bank transfer before the start of the course.
