What are Classes?

Our teaching is combined with play and the building of an emotional bond between dog and owner. With emphasis on control, (walking nicely on lead, recalling to owner and not jumping up), plus good manners, Classes are centred around the Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme and we also incorporate low-level sporting activities. As the name suggests, Reality Dog Training was set up to allow owners to gain and maintain control of their dogs where it matters the most...outside, in real-life situations with all the distractions typically presented.

How are Classes Structured?

Initial Training consists of 11 hours. Following Induction of 3 hours, your 8 hourly Classes can be attended ad-hoc although joining us at every available class is encouraged for greatest possible success. With exception of extreme weather conditions and rugby stadium days, we train during school term times. At the end of the initial pre-paid period, each Follow-On Block consists of 8 hourly Classes paid in advance as a block on a sliding scale or pay-as-you-go on the day.

Are Vaccinations needed for Classes?

Indoor Inductions are fully suitable for dogs who may only have had their first vaccination. Outdoor Inductions can be participated within by owners of pre-second vaccination dogs in arms, with a picnic (or larger) sized blanket, to benefit from social etiquette, settling techniques and behavioural training tips to practice at home while bridging the vaccination gap. There isn't any nose-to-nose contact at Inductions and a blanket prevents contact with the ground. It is highly recommended but not essential that dogs are vaccinated against Kennel Cough.
Why do Classes have Inductions?

This session is to help set you and your dog up for success by providing an understanding of the psychology of how dogs learn, emotional bonding, calming signals, body language and developmental stages including experimental behaviours and elife skills so your canine companion can accompanying you at any time, in any place.

Where are Classes?

Our TW1 venues are Twickenham Training Centre and Marble Hill Park. In TW7 we train out of St John the Baptist Church Hall and in TW12 we are based at Linden Hall Community Centre.

Twickenham Training Centre has free on-site parking. For Marble Hill Park, car parking is free at weekends on Orleans Road beyond the gated entrance to the park as well as Richmond Road; the car park accessed via the main entrance is fee-paying. Parking is free on site at St John the Baptist Church and Linden Hall as well as on residential roads.
