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...

Nikki Birkett Dog Training was launched in 2017 in a cumulation of my passion to develop relationships between dogs and their owners. I provide bespoke training on a one to one basis for individual issues and also group classes for pup's older dogs, both are available in person and online. I also train Hoopers for all ages. My driving passion is working with owners of 'reactive' dogs, dogs which show a reaction to other dogs or people over and above what one would expect, in either an over-enthusiastic way or a scared way. I also love working with you and your puppies, helping get them off to the very best start from before they even arrive home to you. All of the training I use and teach is ethical, based around how the dog is feeling. If the dog feels good then training flys! I am based in Selby, North Yorkshire but do travel in a radius of approximately 30 miles. I am open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10am until 6pm however am usually available outside of these hours on email! Head over to my Website to see what's on at the moment and I will see you soon!
