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 with their human families. Whilst dogs have been bred to live with us for many, many years we can’t discount the fact they were once wild scavengers and still enjoy hobbies like bin raiding, people drag racing and legging it after squirrels!

Dogs don’t come knowing the key skills needed to be a Good Boy or Girl and 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 pulling them like the huskies they saw on the Christmas advert on the Telly Box
  • Being the best and fastest dog at fetch in the dog park
  • Leaving stuff when their person says, even when it's the tastiest snack in the hands of a human puppy
  • Listening to your every word
  • Doing simple tricks to prove to your neighbours and friends they really are the goodest boy or girl in town

Of course, this will require a little effort from you too. Like any parent, showing your dog the way is the key to your dog graduating from the Good Dog level 1 class. In this class we have squished lessons into short 5 minute daily sessions Monday - Friday. Commit to just 5 minutes a day and marvel at the results.

Who are we...

Welcome to Dog School Nerja - an amazing new dog training company offering training classes, 121s and workshops throughout the Nerja area, both in-person and online. My name is Karen and I’m the brains behind Dog School Nerja! My world is all about dogs and I love to show people how to build a meaningful relationship with their dog through training. My methods are simple, clear and easy to follow, but importantly; they involve modern, science-based theories that mean your dog will want to learn and grow into a happy, well-mannered member of the family. The days of intimidating dogs to do what we want are long gone and I can show you how to build a life-long bond with your dog where training is fun and enjoyable for both of you.I believe that dogs will give more when they're enjoying learning and I only use positive reinforcement or reward-based methods.

I take a holistic approach to training which means I look at the bigger picture; taking into account the dog’s physical, mental, emotional and social needs. And guarantee to use only the most up to date and kindest methods to teach both you and your dog using food, toys and praise. My objective is to provide a professional and supportive environment for you and your dog to thrive as a team.

Online options are available at any time, and you can contact me personally Monday-Friday 10am-6pm, or you can get in touch via social media on Facebook and Instagram. I am based in Nerja, however I can travel to you anywhere in the Axarquia region, or if it’s easier for you, I can give you all the support you need online. I also hold regular group classes in Nerja for both puppies and adult dogs.
