  • Does my dog need to be vaccinated?
    Yes and no – Dogs can be fully vaccinated or vaccicheck/titer tested.
  • I have done training with my dog before, can I skip beginner training?
    So we can assess your dog's current training position we always recommend attending a Beginner class. We can then discuss progressing your dog to a higher level if appropriate.
  • What can I do to prepare my puppy for his first class?
    Socialisation is the key. Even before your puppy has had its vaccinations you can take it out. Carry your puppy in your arms or in a rucksack, take it out and about in your local area. Take your puppy to a family/friend’s house to play in the garden. Build up your play and tuggy with your puppy with different toys. Please keep running ball games to a minimum, as this will be hard on your puppy’s legs.
  • What do I need to bring with me?
    A hungry dog – try not to feed your dog before class, a hungry dog is more likely to work for treats. Your dog’s favourite toy to play tuggy with. Nice smelly treats for a reward (Chicken & Hot Dog Sausages) Collar and lead (No extender leads)
  • What happens if I miss a class?
    If you need to miss a class due to illness, holidays or special occasions you are welcome to join us at a different venue (by arrangement).
  • My dog is aggressive to people and or dogs, can I still come to classes?
    No – Sorry we don’t accept aggressive dogs in classes. We can give you contact details of trainers that specialise in training aggressive or anti social dogs, please contact us for details.
  • How do I pay for the courses?
    APT always ask for payment in advance, this can be done via bank transfer or Paypal.
  • How do I edit or remove the 'Frequently Asked Questions' title?
    You can edit the title from the FAQ 'Settings' tab in the Editor. To remove the title from your mobile app go to the 'Site & App' tab in your Owner's app and customize.
  • Do I need to book?
    For insurance purposes we do need you to book your place in advance. This will also save disappointment as we do have limited spaces on all of our dog training sessions.
