LIFE SKILLS SCHOOL
This new take on traditional obedience classes will set your dog up for success in their training. We’ll be covering a range of topics, practising all sorts of useful real world behaviours and then testing our skills in the final week. The first week starts online, giving you homework in order to have your dog ready to start the class the following week.
The class sizes are small, and limited to 4 dogs per class, each class being 45 minutes long to ensure your dog doesn't get bored. This class is held in an outdoor secure field with plenty of space and areas to decompress should your dog require it. You will receive a training pack to help continue your work at home, along with some tasty freebies (for the pups!).
