About Obedience Training

All about Obedience Training

At our dog training centre, we offer obedience training for dogs of all ages and breeds. Our experienced trainers use positive reinforcement techniques to teach your furry friend basic and advanced commands, such as sit, stay, come, heel, and more.

Our training programs are tailored to your dog’s specific needs and personality, ensuring they receive the attention and support they need to learn effectively. We offer group classes, private 1-2-1 sessions and residential training to suit your schedule and lifestyle.

In the mid-1970s, I became a police officer, and although I didn’t work in the dog section due to my own needy German Shepherd, I learned how to train police dogs and later competed in service dog competitions. I even taught a green dog to pass his NASDU levels 2 and 3 on the same day with flying colours.

Our obedience training goes beyond just teaching commands; it also focuses on developing a solid bond between you and your dog. We emphasise communication and understanding, helping you and your furry friend establish clear expectations and boundaries. This strengthens your relationship and makes living together more enjoyable and fulfilling.

With our obedience dog training services, you can have a well-behaved and obedient companion who is a pleasure to be around. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and take the first step towards a happier life with your furry friend.

We have BEGINNERS and ADVANCED Obedience Classes available indoors, outdoors, in a group, private and residential settings.

Public Access Testing

Public Access Testing

These dogs are trained to a high standard and are allowed public access rights, which means they can accompany their owners into various public places such as shops, restaurants, and public transportation.

The public access test covers the essential elements of good public behaviour expected from a service dog, ensuring secure behaviour around fellow animals and people.

Livestock Worrying

When farm animals feel threatened, they can become distressed, potentially causing harm to themselves and abort pregnancies. As dog owners, it is crucial to act responsibly and with thoughtfulness. Permitting a dog to cause distress to livestock is considered an offence.

Obedience Training Benefits

The benefits of Dog Obedience Training

Master basic obedience to avoid unwanted behaviour

Obedience is a process of teaching dogs to follow commands and behave appropriately in various situations. We help you master basic commands such as sit, stay, come, and heel and advanced obedience when you and your dog are ready to take it a step further.

Create a stronger bond with your dog

The purpose of obedience is to establish a clear line of communication between you and your dog, creating a mutual understanding of expectations and boundaries. This training helps to build a strong bond between you and your dog and improves the dog’s behaviour, making it more manageable and easier to live with.

Recommended for ALL dogs to prevent behavioural issues in the future

Obedience training can be done in various settings, including group classes, private sessions, and residential training. It is recommended for all dogs, regardless of breed or age, as it provides mental stimulation and helps prevent behavioural issues in the future. With consistency, patience, and positive reinforcement, obedience dog training can transform a misbehaving pup into a well-behaved companion.
