What will my dog learn?

Tell me more...

Welcome to GOOD DOG - LEVEL 1 where your dog can learn all the skills necessary to thrive within their human families. Whilst dogs have been bred to live with us for many, many years we can't discount the fact that they were once wild scavengers and still enjoy hobbies like bin raiding, people drag racing and legging it after squirrels!

Dogs don't arrive in our families knowing the key skills needed to be a Good Boy or Girl, and we don't automatically know how to build a great partnership with our dogs. Just like young children, they need teachers to show them the way.

In GOOD DOG - LEVEL 1 we start to teach your dog how to be the goodest boy or girl your family could wish for including:

  • Sitting and staying when asked
  • Settling and chilling when asked
  • Coming back even when there are squirrels
  • Walking with the person on the end of the lead and not dragging them behind like a sack of potatoes
  • Being the best and fastest dog at fetch in the neighbourhood
  • Leaving stuff when asked - even when it is tasty, mouldy and/or smelly
  • Listening to your every word
  • Doing simple tricks to prove to your neighbours and friends that they really are the goodest boy or girl in town.

Of course, this will require a little effort from you too. For any owner, having a good relationship with two-way communication is the key to your dog graduating from the Good Dog Level 1 class. In this class we have condensed our lessons into short, 5 minute daily sessions Monday - Friday. Commit to just 5 minutes per day, and marvel at the results.
