Life Skills

This programme is designed to start with the basics, gradually working up to level 4, where you are working without a leash.

Each level runs 6 weeks.

Level 1

$179 +HST

The programme will provide a reliable response to basic obedience cues and life skills that enable appropriate social interaction with humans and other dogs.

The first class is a lecture for owners and handlers only.

  • Foundation exercises to improve focus for better learning include voluntary ‘check in’ and body awareness.
  • Body Position Cues: Sit, Down and Stand
  • Reliable Recall
  • Enjoyable Leash Walking

Level 2

$169 +HST

The skills mastered in Life Skills 1 provide the foundation for appropriate meeting and greeting behaviours with other dogs and people. Cues for new Body Positions and a quick response to move away from an object or place will be taught. Your dog will strengthen its ability to keep attention and focus in a more difficult or active environment. Effective and humane techniques will continue to enhance your relationship with your dog.

Level 3

We also introduce off-leash walking in this level.
