LifeSkills Classes

This class is open for dogs of all ages and breeds however it may not be suitable for reactive dogs so please contact us first before you book by reactive we mean dogs that are showing signs of aggression towards other dogs and humans. It may be that you might need a one to one before attending a class in the future.

What is LifeSkills

This class is all about getting the basics of good obedience in a positive way, teaching your dog good manners. This class is a great starting point if you have a new puppy and want to set them up for success, a new rescue and you want to teach them what their previous owners should of or even if you have a dog who is listening inside the house but is easily distracted when out.

Classes are a great low level distraction to get your dog listening and focused on you whilst being in a controlled environment where everyone is doing the same thing.

But they are also a great way of introducing yourself to how dogs learn with current methods that have been backed by scientific studies. The world of dog training is ever evolving so making sure you attend a class with a trainer who is keeping up with relevant and up to date methods.
