Please bring the following to all classes attended with your dog:
Examples of treats suitable for classes include:
If your dog has a sensitive stomach or is on a restricted diet we recommend poached chicken or turkey.
It’s best to bring a variety of treats for class – a “doggie trail mix”.
Your treats should be diced up to very small portions – about the size of a rice bubble for small breeds, or a pea for large breeds. If your dog has to chew the treat, then it is too large. Small treats means that your dog won’t fill up as quickly, and will also mean that we use less food.
Don’t forget to reduce your dog's meals on the days where they’re having a lot of treats, so that they don’t put on excess weight. Treats with a lot of fat or salt content like hot dogs should be used sparingly, as they can be unhealthy for your dog in large quantities.
Bring at least a full sandwich bag full of treats to each class – it’s always better to go home with extra than to run out halfway through the lesson.
LEASH & COLLAR
As per our safety rules, your dog can wear either a standard flat collar, well-fitting harness or well-fitting head-collar to class. If you would like to bring your dog in a harness or head-collar, please ensure they are also wearing a collar as a backup option.
Your dog must be on a leash at all times when on our grounds; please ensure your leash is attached before letting your dog out of the car.
Leashes must be standard flat leashes; not retractable, rope or chain, and be 1.5 to 2.2m in length.
Do not bring your dog to class wearing a check/choke chain, prong collar or citronella/shock collar.
Please ensure you bring poo bags along to take care of your puppy’s waste if necessary. We will provide disinfectant and paper towels to clean any toileting accidents; it is each owner’s responsibility to clean up after their puppy.
Please use only the bins marked Beacon Dog Training for any dog waste.
You will need to bring your puppy’s vaccination certificate to the first week of each course you attend. If your puppy is revaccinated during your course, please email us a photo of the new certificate.
This is so that your dog has something comfortable to sit on, and is also used in some courses to teach stationing. There will be sections of your course where we go through theoretical content while the dogs just hang out, and having a familiar and comfortable surface to lie on will help them relax.
