Our Novice Obedience program is suitable for dogs of all ages and all breeds. If you have a pup who needs to learn basic manners, a teenage dog who struggles with distractions, or an older dog who needs a boost in confidence, this program is suitable for all. This program can be tailored to meet each dog’s individual needs.
In this program we cover basic obedience skills such as ‘sit’, ‘down’, ‘leave-it’, ‘focus’, recalls to handlers, amongst other behaviours that make for a well-rounded companion. We also put a large emphasis on leash walking skills and prolonged stays. We practice all of these skills with increasing distractions such as toys, food, other people, and other dogs. This prepares the dog to focus, and look to their owner for direction when in many different environments and situations.
