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 agility and rally. 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?

Our Initial Course consists of 12 hours of training. Following the 2 compulsory Inductions of 2 hours via Zoom, your 8 hourly Classes can be attended ad-hoc although joining us at every class is encouraged for greatest possible success. At the end of the initial pre-paid period, each Follow-On Course 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?

Our Inductions are via Zoom thus suitable even for dogs who may only have had their first vaccination. Classes can only be attended outdoors from one week after second vaccination although owners of pre-second vaccination dogs are welcome to observe outdoor Classes with their dog in arms, free of charge, to benefit from behavioural training tips to practice at home while bridging the vaccination gap. It is highly recommended but not essential that dogs are vaccinated against Kennel Cough.
Why do Classes have Inductions?

These 2 Zoom sessions help set you up for success by providing an understanding of the psychology of how dogs learn, the importance of correct socialisation, appropriate play, emotional bonding, calming signals, body language and developmental stages including experimental behaviours such as mouthing, stealing and chasing.
Settling, attention to name, recall, loose lead walking and handling are also covered to reveal foundations of behaviour so your companion can join you at any time, in any place.

Where are Classes?

Following your 2-Part Zoom Inductions, Classes will be in Marble Hill Park TW1 2NL. We are located between Orleans Gate and the children's play area, near the Coach House Cafe. If entering via Ferry Gate, River Gate or from the main car park off Richmond Road, please allow for a 5-10 minutes walk.

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.
