Tricks 4 Treats Pet Dog & Fun Agility Training

Based in Poole, Dorset

Our puppy and dog training classes are designed to be fun for both you and your dog using reward based training methods. Each class lasts 1 hour with a maximum of 8 dogs per class and we offer several different courses and One to One Training at home if required.

Our trainers belong to the Association of Pet Dog Trainers and have been assessed according to a strict code of practice and have agreed to abide by kind and fair principles of training.

Additionally, Tricks 4 Treats belong to the 'Buy With Confidence' scheme, which offers peace of mind to anyone wishing to carry out any training with us.

Puppy and pet dog training classes are held at the Creekmoor Community Centre, Northmead Drive, Creekmoor, just off the A35 and within easy reach of Poole, Bournemouth, Broadstone, Corfe Mullen, Wareham, Sandford, Wimborne, East Dorset and the Purbecks. Classes are held on Wednesday and Thursday afternoon and evenings.

Fun agility training is held near Organford, Dorset in a fully enclosed field on Saturdays.

You will find information about our courses, articles about dogs and our Online Shop where you can purchase dog training aids and some fun items for your dog on the site.

 

" I like the structure of the course. I feel comfortable and able to ask for help when needed. It is definitely worth travelling outside of Purbeck to go to your dog training class. The classes have a very friendly encouraging atmosphere. My dog really enjoyed the classes and we have seen the benefits already at home and when we got out with him. I like the structure and professionalism of the way the classes are run: maximum number of dogs' per class for example. " - Claire & Sweep

Your Dog and Fireworks - Tips for the Firework Season

Your Dog and Fireworks Below are some tips to help your dog during the firework season:

  • Dog's need a bolt hole, somewhere they know to be safe, comfortable and quiet;create a den.
  • Prepare treat releasing toys in advance, such as KONG's, so you are ready.
  • Keep your TV and/or radio on with a slightly higher volume, to help block out the worrying noises/sounds.
  • Walk your dog before dark and close any cat flaps.
  • Close curtains/blinds to block out the bright flashes.
  • Do not block off areas that your dog is used to accessing, they must have the option to go where they can feel safe.
  • Offer comfort, you cannot reinforce any emotions your dog is feeling, but you can help to make them feel less anxious and in some cases, relaxed enough to settle and be happy in your company.
  • Invest in a Thundershirt, super for helping to relieve anxieties.
  • Scullcap & Valerian can work wonders, the right dose for the evening should help to achieve a relaxed state of mind.
  • Valerian Compound is very beneficial and can be used as a 'top up' to Scullcap & Valerian.
  • ADAPTIL Collars may help to work against worries, but it must be left on throughout the 4 weeks period to be effective.

Finding the right combination is important for each individual. All of the above used together may well be the answer, but do not be afraid to try all that you can, in a kind and positive manner, to ensure that your dog has the best possible chance of feeling less concerned.

Calming products will not work as stand alone options. Most dogs's will require something to keep them occupied, but it's also important to ensure that their interest in whatever you provide is evident prior to fireworks starting. So prepare in advance of the evening drawing in, set them up for success and such evenings should be that little bit easier for them to cope with.
