What's covered in Level 1

Part 1

Part 1 introduces basic behaviours such as sit & down using clicker training techniques and some fun games that get your dog thinking. Plus there's a bonus treat worksheet for you to fill in!

Part 2

In part 2 we look at the importance of calmness and how to achieve it. We will use boundary games to help with many problem behaviours in the house such as jumping up at the table, stealing items and jumping on visitors.

Part 3

Part 3 is all about loose lead walking! It includes the first steps to take and tips on how to still exercise your dog whilst you're working on your training.

Part 4

Part 4 is all about making you the best thing in your dog's life through play! With this solid foundation you will be setting yourself and your dog up for those reliable recalls you dream of.

Understanding your dog's mind & Puppy Evolution - Level 1

New to Sussex Canines? Here's what our clients have to say.

 Sussex Canines training has been invaluable with tips to help our puppy settle in and be socialised, and has made me more confident with using games and techniques to help our dog make good choices. Plus Gemma was amazing with advice on all the random questions thrown at her!  
Melanie Jarman
 We have just completed the foundation course with Gemma. Our now 5 month old puppy Rio and I have learnt so much and the techniques learnt  with Gemma are helping to make Rio calmer all round. Gemma is a fantastic trainer with a lot of knowledge and a huge amount of patience. I am looking forward to starting the next course in the new year to continue the progress Rio is making.
