In just six weeks we’re going to teach you how to have a totally obedient dog, so that you can enjoy a perfectly trained companion.

These courses are designed for people with dogs aged four and a half months or more, and who are able to attend the three one-hour training sessions over a six week period (one lesson of one hour per fortnight). These courses are held at the Crosby Ravensworth location.

The course covers all the essential basics to ensure your dog remains fully under your control, both on and off the lead. I will train you personally, and make allowances for your dog’s own unique character (believe me no two are ever the same!).

The course syllabus includes:

  • Maintaining good behaviour in the home
  • Applying the principles of pack leadership
  • Setting and enforcing behaviour boundaries
  • Discipline – knowing when, where and how
  • Obedience training to hand signals and a whistle
  • Learning how nutrition can affect behaviour
  • Teaching social skills with other dogs and humans

And by the end of the course, you will own a dog who can…

  • Walks to heel on a lead without pulling
  • Walks to heel off a lead at your side
  • Leaves your side on command
  • Sits, stays and comes to a whistle
  • Sits at a distance on a whistle and a hand signal
  • Does not chase livestock
  • Comes back every time on command on the whistle

Sounds like a perfect dog? It will be, but note the headline above that says that ‘we’ are going to make this work – the training is a partnership between me, you, and your pet.

I will provide you with the skills and techniques and you must apply them not only during our sessions, but for two hours every day, (split into 4 x 30 minute sessions) for 7 days a week for the next six weeks.

Yes, it does require a degree of commitment from you, but, I promise it will work and I also promise that by using my guidance you and your dog will enjoy every minute.

Advanced tidying up lesson
Having successfully trained your dog you may in the future decide that you would like me to keep an eye on you! So a  “Tidying Up” one hour lesson is also available should you feel that you need it.
