Progressive Dog Obedience Courses

Dog obedience training is important part of the stage of development. This is where they learn how to socialise with other dogs, people, new situations correctly.

Most of importantly it installs a routine and a sense of fun in to it.

Training is based around socialising your dog along side informal obedience training.  Emphasis put is on:

“Teaching the owner to train the dog”.
