Life Skills for Good Dogs

Dogs don't come to you knowing the life skills needed to be a Good Boy or Girl. Just like young children, they need you to show them the way.

They may have lived with us for thousands of years but we can’t ignore the fact that once upon a time they were once wild scavengers — and still enjoy hobbies like bin raiding, people drag racing and legging it after squirrels!

Is this for you?

If you've been through your first few weeks of house-training and other puppy basics this is definitely for you to build on that great foundation (if not, click here for Puppy Home School).

If you have a rescue dog or an adolescent needing a refresher in good dog behaviour, this is exactly what you need now!

If you need help training an older dog with behavioural 'quirks' that only you appreciate, this is most certainly for you!

Do any of the following problems sound familiar?

  • Your arm is being pulled out of its socket as your dog drags you to the park
  • You, the children and your visitors have to be on the alert whenever there's food around as your dog's become a snatch and grab professional (and then there's the embarrassment over the stolen picnics in the park)
  • Once your dog gets over-excited he just can't settle quietly
  • He's forever trying to jumping up at people who don't appreciate the attention or the muddy paws, especially when they're doing their best to be socially distanced
  • You daren't let him off lead as you're not sure how many hours it will take to catch him again.

What will your dog learn?

With Dog Home School you'll show your dog how to be the best boy or girl your family could wish for, including:

  • Sitting and staying when asked
  • Settling calmly
  • Coming back — yes, even when there are squirrels!
  • Walking with the person on the end of the lead — not pulling them like the huskies they saw on TV
  • Practising to be the best and fastest dog at fetch in the park (yay!)
  • Leaving stuff — especially when it's a tasty snack in the hands of a human puppy
  • Listening to your every word
  • Doing simple tricks to prove to your friends and neighbours they really are the cleverest pup in town (or possibly the universe)

Of course this will require a little effort from you too.

Like any parent now familiar with home schooling, showing your dog the way is the key to your dog graduating from Dog Home School.

We've squished lessons into short five minute daily sessions Monday – Friday for six weeks. (Don't worry, if you have to take a break, all the classes are there for you at any time.)

All you need to do is commit to just five minutes a day and soon you'll be marvelling at the results.

We are just completing the first week and we are already seeing amazing progress. Minty has picked up on hand touch and her recall and lead walking have improved. For this lockdown time and any other time this is a great course.
