Obedience training is primarily two things:
  1. Establishing and promoting a proper relationship between you and your dog
  2. A way of communicating so that your dog understands your commands and those commands have meaning

The aim of the basic obedience course is to teach dog owners the art of training their dogs and solving behavioural problems. The practical exercises covered are practical skills needed by the dog to live happily together with us.

The basic obedience course gave dog owners the skills to transform their untrained dog into a well-behaved pet dog. The intermediate classes pick up where we left off in the basic obedience course. It introduces the dog owner to more practical exercises which we can practice with our dogs, to make our dogs more versatile.
