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 best 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 best 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.

This fantastic mini-course does exactly what it says....
Muzzle Training Made Easy!
Using non-invasive training techniques, teach your dog to enjoy the muzzle and feel comfortable wearing it, by following this simple step by step, video tutorial.
But your dogs not reactive or aggressive??
Muzzle training is still a fantastic skill to have in your tool box! Vet visits are just one example of when you might find your dog having to be muzzled. Especially if they have to be admitted overnight!
Not only that but muzzles are useful to protect surgical wounds, for dogs who eat foreign objects on walks, during the initial intervention of modifying behaviours such as clothes grabbing/pulling and leash chewing... plus much more.
This fantastic course designed for those dog owners who want to get their geek on and delve a little further into the science behind canine stress!
'THE STRESS CLINIC' will give you a true and deeper understanding of your stressed dog and will not only give the tools, but the knowledge to start helping your best friend to de-stress! (and prevent them from becoming overly stressed in the first place).
The course is 100% online and can be completed at your and dogs own pace. Not only that, but you have access to your course FOR LIFE! What do we cover in the course? I'll tell you...
We discuss what exactly stress is and get deep down into the science of it, we look at what causes stress, and we get really geeky over the physiological changes and the possible longer term effects, we learn how to identify the onset of stress in our dogs at its earliest signs, learn how to prevent and manage stress, we learn all about decompression and how to implement it and we take a look at how we change the emotional response and behaviours.
