Dog Obedience Classes
Dog obedience classes are an essential part of life skills. And something every single dog should undergo.
But our training classes are a little different! We don’t like boring. We don’t like the repetitive walking around cones week in week out. We don’t like the endless drones of ‘sit’, ‘down’, ‘stand’.
So how is our training different? We train through games!! I know that most dog owners aren’t as crazy/obsessed with dog training as I am. And if you are, then welcome to the club!
I know that you want quick, easy dog training techniques. So we won’t be spending hours doing the same thing every week.
With us, every week is different. Our training techniques can be achieved with two 5 minute sessions each day. But we think you’ll enjoy it so much that you’ll do more.
And best of all, our training games transfer to the real world! We don’t want trained dogs just in our training centre. We want to watch you walk across the car park with ease! We want to hear that your dog’s recall is just as good on the beach as it is in the house. And we want your dog to be relaxed and settled when new visitors arrive.
Dogs are part of our family, and teaching them how to behave in all situations is an essential part of being able to enjoy life with your dog.
Anyone who has met me will know that I’m pretty competitive! And as a total dog nerd its only right that I fell in love with competition obedience. Any dog breed can compete, but I warn you, once you start, you won’t stop! Get ready to sacrifice your weekends!
Competitive Obedience focuses more on the precision of basic commands such as heel, sit, down, recall, and retrieves. With the added difficulty of scentwork when entering higher levels.
And it’s not only about precision, but working in high level distractions. With other dogs, handlers, busy arena’s, as well as loud noises like tannoys and loud speakers.
So do you think you have what it takes to enter the world of competition obedience?
