OBEDIENCE + AGILITY FOUNDATIONS

This course will continue to work with the some of the items covered in the life skills classes and introduce some fun exercises to keep your dog engaged and techniques to be more interesting on a walk.

Some of the things we cover will also help you and your dog if you would like to try agility or hoopers with your dog.


Balance, sendaway, co-ordination, perch work, wobble boards,

cone work, left & right cues.

For our training classes, dogs should be OK with people (nervous is fine) and they should

be non-reactive towards other dogs in class. 

We are happy to work with an ‘I need space’ dog but if your dog is likely to disrupt classes with any form of

aggressive behaviour towards people or dogs then we highly recommend you contact us to see how we can help.

ONE-TO-ONE TRAINING

If you are unable to make a regular class, or have a dog who finds a class situation difficult or becomes

stressed around other dogs then one to one training is also available.
