Our 7 week course is suitable for most dogs, including:

  • rescue dogs whose behaviour or confidence you would like to improve;
  • ones who jump up on people who enter the house or who they see on walks;
  • ones who are generally good but who do things like pull madly on the lead, making your walk a task rather than an enjoyment;
  • ones who lunge & bark at other dogs when on lead but react calmly to them when not on lead;
  •  dogs who come when called if they feel like it;
  • ones who are good natured but are generally out of control & don’t understand obedience;
  • ones who counter surf or break into the food supply.

Your dog will learn obedience by learning to concentrate on you & look to you for guidance.

What obedience is about at Tails Up

Obedience training ia about a lot more than simply having your dog obey you.

It is about having a dog who wants to obey you becasue they trust & have faith in you. It is about having a dog who actually wants to please you.

A dog like this is a pleasure to live with and a pleasure to train. It takes the anxiety out of training and lets you enjoy the company of your dog.

At Tails Up we start your obedience training by showing you have to achieve this sort of training.

We help you along the way and the more effort you put into having a dog who trusts & wants to obey you, the more support you will get from us.

With obedience, your dog will:

  • walk nicely beside you in public places;
  • control impulses to run out of doors &  gates ahead of you;
  • leave things on the ground that you don’t want them to have (or drop things they have picked up);
  • wait calmly to be fed;
  • allow you to take food away;
  • come when you call;
  • stay in their allocated parts of the house;
  • behave calmly around other dogs, in crowds & in traffic; and, of course
  • if there is a problem with house training, become well toilet trained.
