Advanced Obedience (Off-leash)


Imagine the pride and satisfaction you’ll feel when your dog performs complex commands flawlessly, even in the face of distractions. Our 12-week Off-Lead Course equips your furry friend with the skills necessary to reach new heights in their obedience journey. In this section, we will delve into the specific benefits and features of our course, highlighting the transformative impact it can have on your dog’s behavior and overall development.

  • Enhanced Focus and Impulse Control: Through carefully crafted exercises and progressively challenging tasks, our Off-Lead Course nurtures a heightened level of focus and impulse control in your dog. They will learn to resist temptation, ignore distractions, and respond promptly to your commands, even when off-leash. These invaluable skills will have a positive ripple effect in various aspects of your dog’s life, leading to better behavior, improved manners, and increased safety.
  • Off-Lead Freedom: Nothing compares to the freedom and trust that comes with having your dog off-leash. Our course gradually introduces off-leash training in a controlled environment, ensuring your dog is reliable and responsive even without physical restraint. By learning to listen to your commands without the need for a leash, your canine companion can enjoy more freedom during outdoor activities, such as hiking, running, or playing fetch.
  • Strengthened Bond: Training sessions are not only an opportunity for your dog to learn and grow; they also foster a deeper connection between you and your pet. Our Off-Lead Course promotes teamwork, communication, and mutual understanding. As you guide your dog through challenging exercises, you’ll witness the trust and reliance they place in you, strengthening the bond that forms the foundation of a lifelong friendship.

Classes meet once a week for 12 weeks.
