About The Course


When you love your dog you want to make sure that they are safe when off leash. 

It is so  important that your dog responds to cues from a distance.

In this course you will learn how to teach your dog:

  • on and off leash heeling

  • recall with distractions

  • emergency stop 

  • extended stays

  •  directed jumping 

Under guidance of an expert Behavioural Trainer you will: 

  • understand  dog body language 

  • recognise dog play styles

  • strengthen the relationship between you and your dog 

  • motivate your dog to come when called under real life distractions

    All classes will be held outdoors until further notice. The area is fully fenced and safe.

    Classes will be restricted to one person per dog. Your whole household  is encouraged to watch the training but will need to sit  in family groups in “bus shelters’ that we have around the ground and watch from a distance. There must be a maximum of 9 people in the class at one time plus your Trainer.

    We have a large area and can keep at least a distance of 1.5m between people in the class.

    Planet K9 will provide hand sanitiser. It is important to sanitize your hands before you touch the dogs.

    Please sneeze or cough into your elbow if you need to.

    Toilet facilities are available on site. Please use hand sanitiser before entering.

    If you or a member of your household have a fever or sore throat at any time during the course please do not attend, We can arrange a make up lesson for you when you are well again.
