Breed-specific Obedience Course

Our breed-specific obedience course is designed to help your dog thrive by nurturing its natural instincts and drive. 

Many dogs are more suited to learning in a natural, rural environment rather than residential-focused surroundings. Our breed-specific course is for dog breeds that benefit from learning skills such as recall and retrieving. 

For example, the instincts for many Retriever and Spaniel breeds drive them to seek and hunt, so specialized training that incorporates that kind of mental and physical stimulation is beneficial for the dog’s health and wellbeing. After the completion of the course, your dog will have increased confidence, self-assurance and abilities. After the course, we offer ongoing support, including a complimentary refresher course to make sure your dog has retrained the obedience and training skills gained. Also, we ensure the dog owner is incorporating the skills into daily life to help the dog use and retain them, so it is happy and fulfilled. 

We have designed a course that gives your dog field simulation training without using live game or firearms. Your dog will be taught a diverse range of skills including recall using a whistle, retrieving objects quietly and obedience commands. Our professional trainers will work closely with your dog to obtain the best results possible and help your dog reach its full potential. 

If your dog is on the list of dogs that are well-suited to this kind of training (see below), it is time to consider enrolling it in our breed-specific obedience course. The difference you will see in your dog’s emotion levels, mood and skill will be clear. 

Some dogs are more trainable than others and this course is only suitable for specific breeds. Other factors that will affect the level of success your dog achieves include breed, bloodlines, temperament and age. We will assess your dog to see if this course or perhaps one of our other dog training courses, is best for your furry companion.
