Teen/Adult Foundations

This 8 week course is designed to give your dog the skills needed to thrive in their life with you. It is tailored for dogs over the age of 5 months at the start of the course. It's perfect for dogs who missed out on puppy classes, rescue dogs, teenagers and also adult dogs needing to brush up on their skills. 

(If you have a younger puppy don't worry, we have you covered with our Puppy Power program! Check it out here)

Through a proven combination of online video tutorials, live group training sessions via our online classroom, tailored coaching in our thriving, private Facebook community (specifically for attendees on this course) and access to feedback and guidance from Michelle 24/7, you will teach your dog to thrive and become a confident, happy and focused dog that you can take anywhere with you!

As well as practical training we also teach you about how dogs learn, overcoming common teenage problems, the importance of continued socialisation (and what this looks like in today's climate) and much more. 

All for the same price as weekly classes!
