This Teenage Pups Obedience and Pre-Agility course is for fully vaccinated dogs aged from around 8 months and over, or any dog who’s behaving like a Teenager!
The Teen Pups course has been designed by our in-house behaviourist and dog training team. It is Covid-19 compliant, with limited places available, so you get lots of personal advice and attention, as well as receiving written tips and lots of video clips to remind and help you practice after a session.
The lessons last 1 hour and the course consists of 8 sessions. It is held on either Wednesday mornings (outdoors) or Thursday evenings (under-cover) at Solihull Riding Club, Dorridge.
Agility skills include going through a tunnel, over a seesaw, weaving poles, and jumps. Teen Pups will set you up perfectly for joining an agility club when they are over 1 year old.
To get onto the Teen Pups course, your dog must have attended the earlier Tween Pups course or had 121s with us. Even dogs aged over 18 months can attend Tweens depending on obedience experience - give us a call on 07542150036 to find out.
Obedience exercises on Teen Pups include recall, including whistle recall, lead walking, emergency stop, backing up, and fun tricks like pivot, crawl and roll over.
Adolescent Socialisation - let’s face it, they’ve probably started noticing the opposite sex a lot more, and are behaving differently around same-sex dogs (or vice versa), so their doggy manners or confidence might need some work. And socialisation needs to be ongoing – use it or lose it.
Once completed, you will be ready to go onto our Top Dogs Parkour and Obedience Course

Training classes are included under the Education category, and can continue under current Government guidelines. If the government suspends Education, this course will continue online at the same time as scheduled.
Unfortunately, due to Covid 19 rules, only one person can attend per dog at the current time – this will be updated if the rules are relaxed.
