Life Skills for Dogs

Building a Bond that will last a Lifetime

Our online Life Skills for Dogs course will provide both you and your dog with all the knowledge and skills you need to thrive in your day to day lives together. 

In our life skills classes we have planned a series of progressive exercises that build the skills that our dogs need to live happily and comfortably within our homes. We provide you with all the knowledge and practical expertise you need to have a long and happy life together.  This is a 6 week course, with each week divided up into 5 daily exercises. You can choose to watch one tutorial a day, or work through it at your own pace -  whatever suits you!

There is also online support available, in the form of our 'Puppy Plus Community' facebook group that you can join to ask questions, post recordings of your training if that is something that would be useful for you. We have over 300 members, and all enjoy the support and friendship that the group provides.

Our course content includes exercises on;

  • Teaching your dog to pay attention to you in lots of different environments 
  • Luring, including how to use this method to teach a spin and twist, sit, down and stand
  • Building up a super strong recall, including the adding of distractions
  • Come back when called even when there are distractions, such as other dogs, sheep or squirrels 
  • Loose Lead walking, including leisure and training mode
  • Teaching a settle
  • Leave both food and toys
  • Teaching you puppy to be happy in the stay position, with you moving away, step by step
