fun, family-oriented, effective Training Courses

Brain & Body:

Who is this course designed for?

 People with dogs who have done the SKN-Practical and wonder what to do now...

 People who are unsure where their dog's talents and interests lie and want to try out a variety of options.

 High-energy dogs and dogs that get bored easily (often these dogs just need more brain-work)

Puppy and Young Dog courses

Puppy classes are for dogs between 8-16 weeks (2-4 months) of age. The course is designed to help puppies “socialize /habituate” (= get used to /able to ignore) other dogs, people, noises, various surfaces, moving or unusual objects, etc. The course is also designed to advise owners on caring for and managing puppies: housebreaking, grooming, nutrition, obedience and more. (Please note that puppies must have their first immunizations and be de-wormed before attending this course.)

Young Dog classes are for dogs between 4-9 months of age. This is course continues and advances the “socialization” process of the dog and starts building in formal training habits and cues. Owners can benefit from further household management advice as well as building a solid foundation of fun, positive training habits for the dog’s life.

Course Size: Maximum 4 dogs.

Cost: CHF 50.00/hour or CHF 480.00 for a 10-lesson block

About the Courses

 New: Dog Training for
the whole Family

It is important that everyone in the family learn how to interact with their dog or puppy (and vice-versa).

Dannegger-Training offers offering private family courses on Saturdays, Sundays or evenings.

Cost: CHF 70.00 /hour or CHF 650.00 for a 10-lesson block

Dannegger-Training’s small group courses (max 4 dogs) are organized in such a way that each dog-handler team can work on the exercises simultaneously, thus maximizing training time. Each team gets very individualized attention and, after the lesson, training session review notes are emailed, sometimes with a video attachment, to the clients each week.

Andrea knows that a dog that can “sit”, “down”, “come” and walk nicely on a leash, does not necessarily make a well-behaved pet in the home! That is why many of her lessons involve tips on managing the dog in the house to reduce the frustration of behaviors such as excessive barking, chewing, jumping on guests, just to name a few common complaints.

Andrea also encourages her clients to contact her by email or Whats App with questions and/or videos between sessions to optimize their training at home.
