Happy Hounds Dog Training & Secure Dog Walking Fields


Bronze Level Dog Training

What you will learn at Bronze Level


What you will learn in the Bronze Class

Dog training requires commitment, this means turning up every week and working hard in class and at home. Each week I will give you homework that you must do or you will fall behind.

Just doing a minimum of 10 minutes training twice a day with your dog will make a big difference, but more is better. Keep training sessions short and fun, end on a high note, do not allow your dog to become bored. Your commands must be clear and consistent, all members of the family need to train in the same way and use the same commands otherwise your dog will get confused.

I will aim to get you through each level of training in 10 weeks and I can only do this if you put in the work. At the end of the course you will be tested on all you have learnt, if you complete all parts then you will pass and move up a class or finish.
