Life Skills PLUS

We are very excited to be offering unique follow-on services to our Life Skills courses, and the best part is that you can pick exactly what you want to sign up to and work on. Much like our Life Skills course, Life Skills PLUS is themed, but rather than different weekly scenarios, each three week intensive course focuses on the one subject at hand. Is your dog pulling on the lead? Then sign up to our Developing Loose Lead Walking course! Recall issues? Come along to Developing Reliable Recall! We understand that every dog is different, and the same is to be said about every dog family, so after you have completed your Life Skills course you can now work on areas that you wish to excel in! Our Life Skills PLUS courses are also open to anyone who wants to work on a specific behaviour, but we recommend that if you have not done a training course with your dog before that, you start with our Life Skills for Beginners course to build a solid foundation. Our three week Life Skills PLUS courses are:

  • Developing Brains with Games
  • Developing Noses with Games
  • Developing Cooperative Canine Care
  • Developing Loose Lead Walking
  • Developing Rapid Retrieves
  • Developing Reliable Recall
  • Developing Calmness and Control in Context


Each course lasts three weeks, and you can come to as many courses as you like, or even repeat a course if you want to further refine your skills in a specific area. There are a maximum of 4 dogs per course so you’re guaranteed individual attention, and each course costs £75. Our Life Skills PLUS courses take place on Monday evenings, Tuesday lunchtime and Friday evenings, and there are different topics on offer all the time.

Developing Cooperative Canine Care

Can you groom your dog without them being uncomfortable and running away or growling at you? Do you know how to teach your dog to enjoy having their paws wiped, claws clipped, or to stand still for eye drops or teeth cleaning? We often just assume our dogs will tolerate being handled, without teaching them to cope with it, or worse end up in a battle where we use force to get the job done. This course will remove that uncertainty and give you both new skills to make stressful grooming and handling a thing of the past.
