Module 1 - Focus on you

In this module we will cover eye contact and attention, teaching the dog to offer you their attention and respond quickly when you ask for it.

We will also look at training this around distractions!

Module 2 - Bed / Stay training

This is a very important behaviour for puppies and older dogs alike, it helps teach calm settled behaviour in the house amongst a lot of other benefits. We will look at teaching the dog to want to go to their crate or bed and going there when you ask. Then we will look at staying and how we can train this around distractions too!

Module 3- Recall

Another incredibly important skill, especially if you allow your dog off lead on walks. We will talk about building enthusiasm for recall and how to train around distractions that can compete with your dogs desire to come back!

Module 4 - Self control / leave it

This is a potentially life saving one! It is so important that dogs learn not to take things that aren't given to them, even if you aren't around to tell them. We will also cover other common self control issues such as jumping up.

Module 5 - Calm walking

Most dogs do not naturally walk nicely on a lead, we have to teach them. And it can be a challenge! We will cover exercises to teach the dogs a good walking position and different games to play increase connection and reduce pulling. 



You will get 6 weeks of access to each online module.

Costs are £15 per module or £50 for all 5 booked together.
