As well as obedience training our expert and knowledgeable trainers specialise in addressing a range of behavioural issues, including aggression, reactivity to dogs, people and traffic, and chasing livestock.

Our Obedience Training program will train your dog in the following:
  • HEEL WORK
  • "DOWN"
  • "SIT"
  • "HERE"
  • FLIP TO HEEL
  • WALKING ON THE LEAD

STAGE 1

At this initial stage we teach the dog how to learn from and interact with the handler. This establishes a bond essential for reducing stress and increasing opportunities for fun.

We use food rewards to shape and lure the dog into foundation positions. Repetition is key to the dog’s learning. Once the dog is offering the behaviours freely a ‘cue’ word is added.

All work happens in our training barn. Distractions are minimised.

STAGE 2

Distractions are added to the dogs training to start ‘proofing’ their behaviours.

Still working within our training barn we control distractions. Body language is reduced as we expect the dog to respond to verbal commands only.

Recalls and stays are introduced and built upon. We now expect more from the dog as his ability grows.

STAGE 3

Taking the learning from stages 1 and 2 we now test the dog within a public environment with real life distractions. This period can be the most challenging for the dog. Using a range of public locations we train the dog to utilise learned behaviours.

During stage 3 we expect the dog to work on verbal commands only, asking for a higher level of obedience. The training is still fun. By now we have usually exchanged the food reward for a toy.
