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 us still 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 its 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...

Talk to the Hound Dog Training was set up in 2018 and is the place to come to for your dog’s training and behavioural needs. We offer a selection of indoor and outdoor group classes for both puppies and adult dogs, along with 1:2:1 training and behaviour sessions, which can be provided both on and offline. Our training is aimed to give both you and your dog a fun and enjoyable experience, whilst learning new and practical techniques to help you on your training journey. All training methods are reward based and will not include any pain or fear during training. Instead we use motivational methods including food, markers, toys and praise. If you choose to undertake the online training option, this can be done at any time. Group classes are held in venues in Hedge End and West End and 1:2:1s are held in your own home or at local parks or walks. We look to cover a 10 mile radius of Southampton, however if you are slightly further afield, then consults may be possible with prior arrangement, or alternatively online consults are available. Classes run Monday and Thursday evenings and also Sunday mornings. If you would prefer a 1:2:1 consult, then these can be arranged during the week or weekend, depending on availability. If you are interested in finding out more about the online training package then please browse the website for available courses. If, however, you would prefer to attend a group or 1:2:1 session please either contact me for more information or visit the Facebook Page to find out more.
