Good Manners workshop

This course is designed for any dogs over 6 months of age that may (or may not) have had any former training.

My 90 – minute workshops will help to develop a solid relationship with your dog and learn basic management and training strategies.

On completion of this workshop, your dog will be able to do the following:

  • Respond to his/her name
  • Come when called
  • Sit when asked – for feeding, getting treats, meeting new people etc
  • Lay on a mat
  • Drop (lay down)
  • Start to walk nicely on a loose lead beside you
  • Leave items and exchange items when asked
  • Stay (remain in position)

On completion of the course, you will have the following knowledge:

  • A greater understanding of how your dog thinks and learns
  • How to respond to your dog’s normal dog behaviours like pulling on lead and jumping up
  • Suitable training tools for your particular dog
  • Understanding changes in behaviour through different developmental stages of your dog
  • The importance of positive reinforcement training and why we don’t advocate the use of punishment methods
  • Teach suitable alternatives for inappropriate behaviours
