Course Overview

Adult dogs can develop bad behaviours over time and teens can change from devoted little shadows to rambunctious play machines. Sometimes these changes will be slow to appear and sneak up gradually, other times they will happen seemingly overnight. Often it is difficult to deal with these changes when there is no particular apparent reason for the change. 

This course caters to dogs that have done some training before but have developed a self-reliant streak and are no longer listening. It is also suitable for teens and adults that have not done any training before and are having some difficulties at home, on walks, or other situations. 

Given the spread of suitable attendees this course does have a syllabus but is very dynamic, allowing attention and focus on those problems that everyone is having, along with providing a safe space to practice the solutions in the company of other like-minded dogs and handlers.
