Good manners & focus

Our Good Manners and Focus class is not available at this time. 

Our Good manners and focus class teaches dogs how to focus and have good manners around distractions including other dogs, and how to teach both owners and dogs how to relax and work together in the face of life's challenges.

Over our 4-week course, you will build up your confidence and increase the difficulty of training for your dog, and learn how important it is to constantly challenge your dog.  There is no age limit and we welcome all breeds and all behaviours

What's covered

The class activities incorporate sits, downs, stays, recall and more in the midst of activity to encourage your dog to obey whilst surrounded by distractions.

  • Focus training

  • Greeting other dogs

  • Learning with games

  • Human greetings

  • Ignoring the public

  • Ignore it
