About Beyond the basics!
Why Beyond the basics?
You built firm foundations at home, now it’s time to let them fly.
We get that not everyone wants their dog to be the next Crufts champion. Instead, you want a dog that can join you with family activities and you can occasionally wow your friends and family with their genius.
You’ve worked on the foundations and life is definitely easier, but there are still some tricky situations you’d like to run smoother.
In Beyond the Basics we keep the same philosophy you learned in Behave! Foundations and up the ante with some controlled distractions and harder environments.
We’ll introduce you to cooperative care so that your dog doesn’t embarrass you at the groomers or vet and you can clip their nails yourself at home.
We’ll teach you how to set the challenge and help your dog meet it so that you can enjoy your lifetime together.
You aren’t alone. It’s not always straightforward to transfer the skills you learned in Behave! Foundations to the more challenging everyday scenarios.
We’ve got you.
We’ll help turn your tribulations to triumphs and show you how to stage the training so you can set the challenge at the right level for your dog. And what to do when real life ruins all your plans.
We are still teaching concepts rather than recipes so you can and your dog can apply your learning to new scenarios in the future.
We introduce new skills for teaching your dog to opt in for grooming and vet care to make the rest of your lives together smooth sailing.
This is a 6 week course. You will benefit from specialised instruction focused on teaching your dog to make excellent choices without you having to nag. Taught by a qualified, experienced behaviourist so any problems can be identified early and dealt with swiftly.
