Loose leash olympics
Welcome to our Beyond Obedience Class, for people who want to keep nice and busy with their dog after going through their Obedience classes.
And, of course, this course deepens your bond with your dog, as we never use force or intimidation in our lessons.
(Each theme is a total of 5 lessons)
- Assistance dog: From 5 February. Short education program to Junior Assistance dog. Teach your dog to make themselves useful in the house. For example: we are going to teach the doggies to bring you something from the closet.
- Loose leash walking Olympics: From 18 March. During five classes, we’ll work on connection and walking nicely on leash without pulling, also when the level of distraction is raising. Dog’s level: for dogs that are doing well with walking on leash without distractions.
- Magic show trick training: From 6 May. Teach your dog a new set of tricks with ‘the magic show’ theme. Goal: mentally challenging your dog, improving your communication skills while working together and of course, a lot of fun!
- Fun and agility: From 17 June. Agility is one of the most populair sports for dogs. In five classes, we will teach your dog the basics of agility in a fun way, for example slalom, tunnel and the jump (without official rules for competitions).
For whom is our Beyond Obedience class?
Owners: People who like to just keep busy with dog. People who enjoy training with us and want to keep doing it in the long term.
Dog’s level: Dogs who have successfully completed their Basic Obedience (Obedience 1) and Advanced Obedience (Obedience 2) classes with us – or have followed classes of a similar level at another dog training school.
Dog’s age: From twelve months old.
The Obedience Beyond course is open to dogs who are sociable to unfamiliar dogs and people. Some dog behaviour problems get in the way of a positive lesson experience, and can even lead to the advice of stopping with the course (for animal welfare and/or safety reasons). That is a waste of your money. Think, for example, of dogs who:
- Dogs who are sociable to even unfamiliar dogs and people
- Dogs who show no aggression in situations where high-value resources are involved (bone, delicious treats, toys)
- Dogs who do not get extremely frustrated waiting for their turn.
The course does not focus on the above-mentioned behaviour problems. If you are experiencing these issues, please read more about our behaviour advice service.
If you are curious about what our past obedience students have to say about the course, check our testimonials page (look for the word (‘obedience’).
