Obedience training at its most basic is the set of skills you need in order to live comfortably and safely with your dog.
Even if we do not aspire to the wonderful harmony and precision of dog and handler to be seen on the green carpet at Crufts, a basic level of obedience is needed to ensure the safety of our own dog and those around us, and to enable us to share our homes with our canine family members in a stress free manner.
Basic, pet obedience classes will teach you how to train your dog to walk calmly on the lead, to come when called, to sit, lie down, and stay. Dog Skillz will teach your dog how to behave around other dogs and people, to ingore distractions and to be happy and confident in all situations.
Here at Dog Skillz we only use positive reinforcement, so that dogs learn to do what we ask because they want to please us and not because they are scared not to!
Our pet obedience classes are designed to be fun and informative for both dog and handler. However, if you wish to take it further, our Competition Obedience class might be for you, with the opportunity to progress to a more advanced level and with access to workshops with top level, visiting handlers/trainers.
