Skill Builder

The starting point for all dogs & puppies over 20 weeks old & the follow-on course to Puppy Life Skills.  Skill Builder is also a fantastic starting point for adolescent dogs.

The course builds up the foundations of basic training & progresses on skills beneficial for everyday life. 

You will increase your dogs skill set & handler toolkit, learning fun tasks which are great for focus, confidence & safety, growing your trust & relationship.  Your dog will learn some new behaviours whilst expanding on existing cues useful in real life situations.



Courses includes a 2 hour Life Skills introductory talk, without dogs (those graduating from the Life Skills for Puppies course do not need to attend the talk again). This is followed by 6 practical sessions, each lasting approximately 1hour.  Classes have a maximum of 6 dogs in order to provide sufficient support to each dog & handler.

On completion of the Skill Builder course dogs under 1 year may also achieve the standard set for the Kennel Club Puppy Foundation Award.
