Beyond Basics

Does your dog already know the basics until there are distractions? Would you like help with obediance training in a public place such as a park or on a village green? Does loose lead walking go out of the window in busy areas? Or does recall relapse when other dogs are nearby?

Beyond Basics consists of 3 1-2-1 sessions with David. These sessions last 1 hour each and you will work on focus, loose lead walking and recall.

Sessions are flexible, you can have each session in the same location or change locations to add variety and increase the difficulty level. Examples of locations are parks, village greens, high streets and beaches.

When working on recall we ask that you use a harness and a 10m training line (not an extendable lead) as well as a short fixed lead.


  • 3 x 1 hour sessions
  • 1-2-1 training with a qualified instructor
  • Variety of positive training techniques to help with focus, loose lead walking and recall
  • Training in a real life environment
  • Flexibility of location
  • Certificate on completion



A very proud Douglas with his certificate!

We all thoroughly enjoyed taking part in this course and your knowledge and everything you taught us has completely changed walks for Douglas and ourselves! We now have the confidence to let Douglas off lead which makes for a very happy boy! All the tips you gave us will always be a help and we will continue to practice everything we have learnt. You made us feel at ease throughout all the sessions and confident that we are able to do everything in the correct way.

We really are grateful and would like to say a very big thank you!
