Due to COVID restrictions, training will mainly be outside. Thank you for your understanding.

Training Plan Success

We get it, you know you need to work on building a skill, but you don’t have a clear plan as to how to facilitate it. Or maybe you have so many things to work on that you don’t know where to start?!

Before grabbing your training bag and dog, spend some time with pen and paper in hand (or at your computer!) coming up with a plan of action. We suggest that you write down EVERYTHING you need to work on to start off with. Get it all down on paper! Now, there is likely to be a lot, so it can be a bit overwhelming, but writing it all down is the first step!

  1. Now you have everything written down, start to pick the games/skills that you know your dog needs the most.
  2. Write up a separate list with these.
  3. From this new list pick 3 things and work on those 3 things for the next 3 weeks.
  4. Continue with this; picking 3 new things to work on for 3 weeks until you have achieve that list.
  5. Then go back to your original ‘all-games/skills-needed’ list and select more skills from there… and so on.

Having everything written down and then picking off things that you need to work on first will really keep your mind focussed and it’ll keep you striving forward.
