About the event

Basic Skills - Enhancing you dogs desire to work with you is key to establishing good training practices and instilling key life skills for your dog.

The course includes an introduction to training techniques, how and why science based training works.

Skill based activities include;

Focus and Attention Work,

Impulse Control

Loose Leash Walking


Perfect Stays

AND we have added these and more!!

Intro in to Science Based Training - why? because understanding how and why the training works will help you problem solve when things just are not working the right way.

Advocating for your Dog - why? because its easy to become overwhelmed - understand when it is appropriate to just say No

Techniques to help prevent unwanted behaviours - why? Did you know that resource guarding is a natural behaviour, did you know we can easily trigger the behaviour by our actions.

New Recall Games - why? because recall is FUN!!

Additional video support and homework sheets are emailed to help you on your journey with your new pup, and can be shared with members of you household.

This training will take place in Freds Dog Gym at 573 Lubitz Rd, Pembroke.
