Catherine Tomlinson, Pet Trainer & Behaviourist Catherine's Dog Well behaved dogs

Dog Training - Explorer

The first level, Explorer, aims to enable your dog to learn essential commands that are used everyday in the household and when out and about. Your dog will be trained using only positive techniques and will be lots of fun for you and the family.


Below are examples of the exercises your dog will learn during the course:-  


  • Stay – with distractions and at a distance

  • Come when called from environmental distractions including people and other dogs

  • Emergency stops

  • Controlled walking amongst people

  • Control through doors and gates

  • Retrieve

  • Socialisation (with people and other dogs)


In keeping with the informal nature of my training, there is no formal examination at the end of the course; all that I ask is that you complete each level before moving onto subsequent levels. Once you have attained the level and received your certificate and rosette you can go onto more courses and fun learning sessions.


Included in the cost of the course is an easy to use handbook with full notes for each class.
