• Adults and Adolescents!

  • This 7 week course is ideal for older dogs and adolescents! It’s a great progression on from the Puppy Lifeksills Course or for older dogs and rescue dogs who are just starting out on their training or would benefit from a refresher! It helps to build that all important bond and relationship between dog and owner so that they want to be with you and enjoy learning!

    The initial group session will be online via Zoom and this will be followed by 6 face to face group sessions

    The advantage of the initial Zoom session is that all the family can take part in this session and class members can take on board the important information that is imparted during this session but in the relaxed environment of your own home. 

    This session will fully prepare all class members with what to expect from the course and what to bring to the sessions from week to week. We will also be able to careful go through the COVID19 regulations that are being put in place to ensure the safety of all clients during this time.    

  • The course will cover:

    • Understanding body language - how they communication with us and other dogs
